¿QUÉ INVESTIGAMOS?

Quiénes somos / Qué investigamos

 

Un objetivo con el que fue fundado MELISA Institute es generar tecnologías para identificar la presencia del embrión humano durante el embarazo temprano, marcadores tempranos útiles en el diagnóstico de enfermedades que afecten el embarazo, diagnostico prenatal y el desarrollo de terapias embrionarias o fetales no invasivas in utero para la Trisomía 21 u otras anomalías genéticas o congénitas que permitan disminuir, prevenir o controlar sus secuelas. Para este propósito, nuestro Instituto cuenta con un laboratorio equipado con tecnología de vanguardia incluyendo next-generation sequencing.

 
 En el área epidemiológica, MELISA Institute está comprometido con el avance de otros temas importantes como los determinantes de salud materna, embrionaria y fetal, además de la medicina trasnacional para la salud de la mujer en general.
