Mònica Mir explains how IBEC technology can help transplant patients’ quality of life

Dr. Mònica Mir, researcher at the Nanobioengineering Group at IBEC and leader of the Caixa Impulse funded project ISCHEMSURG, explained on World Transplant Day how this electrochemical sensor can monitor ischemia in transplanted tissue thus, improving transplant patients’ quality of life.

How did the ISCHEMSURG project take shape?

The project was born after speaking with medical doctors who told us about the problems they were having monitoring postoperative ischemia—an inadequate supply of blood—in transplanted tissue.
