imageMultifunctional nanoparticles being developed by EU-funded researchers are set to revolutionise treatments for complex bone diseases, enabling novel therapies for hundreds of millions of people worldwide suffering from bone cancer, bacterial bone infections and osteoporosis.
imageWhipworms are soil-transmitted parasitic worms that infect about 700 million people in the tropics and sub-tropics. An EU-funded project worked to better understand its interactions with human epithelial and immune cells, in the hope of identifying new treatment possibilities and alleviating suffering.
imageEU-funded biotechnology researchers have developed a novel treatment for atherosclerosis, the narrowing and hardening of arteries that is the leading underlying cause of death and disability in Europe.
imageNobel Laureate Gérard Mourou helped create the shortest and most intense laser pulses ever generated by humankind, opening up new areas of research and leading to breakthrough medical and industrial applications. EU funding has supported his ongoing work, contributing to a remarkable career which he hopes will serve as an inspiration to budding scientists.
imageAn EU-funded project has demonstrated how highly sensitive magnetometers can be adapted to make faster and more precise measurements than was once thought possible - an example of Europe’s new focus on quantum technologies.
imageSun, sea, sand and... jellyfish. Beach holidays have become a risky pursuit as jellyfish populations have exploded in warming seas worldwide in recent years. But thanks to EU-funded researchers, these gelatinous blobs could become a valuable resource - as food, ingredients in medicine and cosmetics, and even as a means to counter pollution.

The aim of this interactive workshop is to introduce and deepen the understanding of brain medicine for non-specialists with the most recent advances in research of neurodevelopmental, neurodegenerative and neuropsychiatric disorders.

Lectures and tutorials by international experts will report the state of the art of research and treatment of brain diseases.

Hands-on examples and practical tools and methodologies will be presented during a visit to lead laboratories at Medical University Innsbruck.

A student brainstorming session will be organised to allow exchange about concepts and methods. Application is open to the entire student community and early career researchers, regardless of whether they are affiliated with the Human Brain Project or not.

All early-career scientists are encouraged to participate and it is aimed to achieve equal representation of all sexes.

Application deadline: 29 May 2019

imageCognitive evaluation is a major pillar of detection and diagnosis of neurodegenerative conditions such as dementia. An EU-funded project has helped enhance the effectiveness of cognitive tests, benefiting patients, their families and society.
imageIf you want to know how Europeans experience retirement and age, why not ask them? A research infrastructure named SHARE has been doing just that, collecting a wealth of data for studies that produce invaluable insights for policymakers. An EU-funded project has expanded the scope of this biennial survey.
