TECHNODE GLOBAL- VinFuture InnovaTalk Webinar: The development of the ultrasensitive and fast liquid biopsy – A revolution in cancer measurement at the point of care

According to Prof. Cunningham, following the direction of a simple, rapid, and inexpensive assay that can be frequently performed to enable early detection, treatment planning, effectiveness measurement, and recurrence monitoring, scientists developed a non-invasive point-of-care device for routine use in clinical settings. The device, which can be used at room temperature, recently highlighted the ability to detect mutated molecules directly out of human serum and quickly give precise results after only one minute with one testing step.

Why sustainability progress rests on encouraging future talent

VinFuture Prize – an awards ceremony dedicated to honouring the exceptional minds who are transforming lives around the world through research and innovation. The Prize represents two key steps we need to take to incentivise innovation and empower scientists.

SCIENTISTS’ VIEWS ON VINFUTURE

Professor Jennifer Tour Chayes, University of California, Berkeley

“The VinFuture Prize is the new vanguard: it’s the first of the major prizes to focus on the impact to humanity so explicitly, focusing on how science and technology can create a better world for all. This is a major prize at the level of the Nobel, Millennium, and Turing”.

Professor Sir Kostya S.Novoselov FRS, Winner of 2010 Nobel Prize in Physics

“It is often happens that scientists from developing countries do not get the recognition they deserve simply because their voice is not heard as well as it is deserved to be heard. The VinFuture prize was developed exactly to change this, to equilibrate the situation.”

Professor-Sir Richard Henry Friend – University of Cambridge

“We now recognize that science and technology must deliver benefit to all peoples and all nations. The VinFuture Prizes will recognize those whose brilliant science or engineering can have positive impact on the lives of millions of people across the planet.”
