Final Results

final results for the erc funded prost project

PROST explored the commercial or societal potential of the ARS Project discoveries.

We are glad to share with you the final results of the PROST Project – Robotic Prostate Biopsy that includes also some Pre-Clinical ex-vivo tests.

The  project leverages the results of ARS and the availability of a prototype of robot for prostate biopsy developed with a grant by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation.

The PROST project aims at the technical and commercial validation of an Autonomous Prostate Biopsy System that will use robotic autonomy to reduce human errors in prostate cancer diagnosis.

On 25th July 2019 the project has been awarded the Proof of Concept (PoC) grant, by the European Research Council, in the same round with other 61 Research projects, of whom 9 in Italy and one at the Verona University.
