Iren + Marilia Project

A year has passed since the beginning of Marilia activities and we can definitely say that we have joined a really interesting project. IREN has participated in work packages dealing with the definition of the device's capabilities accordingly with the users’ needs and in compliance with the Drinking Water Regulation.

RBI (LBIS) will be responsible for the linking of DNA tags to proteins by developing in parallel the “click” based approach and as an alternative peptide-link based variant. In addition, LBIS will perform the characterisation of the obtained conjugates, and the study of their functional organisation in aqueous, biorelevant medium.
The multidisciplinary MARILIA consortium was thoughtfully built to provide the innovative,
translational research. Having scientists of different expertise on board (chemistry, biophysics,
molecular biology, computational visualization), MARILIA project aims to develop a quick assay to
test the safety of drinking water.

What we have learned and what we'll focus on the next year of the MARILIA project


The first year of the MARILIA project has seen groundbreaking scientific and collaborative achievements in research and implementation of the MARILIA technology, thanks to the hard work carried out by the MARILIA Consortium, whose expertise covers the full research and market development value chain of the project.

The Ruđer Bošković Institute (RBI) is by far the largest Croatian non-university scientific research centre of a multidisciplinary character with over 1000 employees, with the mission of excelling in scientific research in the natural, biomedical and engineering sciences, with contributions to higher education and cooperation with the business sector based on outstanding scientific research.
