Cambridge, United Kingdom

Our company

Mursla is a breakthrough exosome characterisation company based on a novel proprietary technology platform, ExoPheno™, which detects the multi-omics cargo of tissue-specific exosomes in blood. It enables various biomedical applications from non-invasive cancer detection to drug discovery. Exosomes (also known as Extracellular Vesicles or EVs) have been shown to reflect the state of their cellular sources, transporting specific ‘-omics’ information (DNA, RNA, proteins, lipids and metabolites) either locally or to distant sites via the circulatory system, including blood.

Our technology, ExoPheno™, consists of proprietary and patented technologies, which integrate wet lab (validated exosome tissue-of-origin markers, pre-analytical multi-omics sequencing workflow and ultrasensitive exosome marker detection systems) and dry lab analysis via machine learning.

  • Demonstrable experience in developing novel bioassays;
  • Hands-on experience with analytical techniques such as ELISA, WB and microscopy techniques;
  • Direct experience with synthesis and characterization of solid supports (nanoparticles and/or beads), surface modification, and bioconjugation;
  • Experience working in a cleanroom device fabrication;
  • Experience in building and handling microfluidic devices;
  • Proficiency in data analysis tools like Python, Matlab or similar;
  • Disseminated work in the form of peer-reviewed manuscripts.
