Research Headlines - Novel contrast agents to enhance medical imaging

Fri, 17 Nov 2017 00:00:00 GMT

(image) EU-funded researchers are working on novel, more effective contrast agents - the substances that make the contrast between, for example, muscle and bone, in MRI scans. This new level of detail will improve diagnostics and help ensure people receive the right treatment.

Success Stories - Meet the robot designed to look after our elderly relatives

Fri, 08 Sep 2017 00:00:00 GMT

(image) You're old, you live alone, maybe you lose your glasses a lot or you forget to take your medicine on time. So what do you need? Zacharias the prototype robot of course - at least that is what an EU funded research consortium are banking on.

Research Headlines - Modifying gene expression for healthy ageing

Tue, 29 Aug 2017 00:00:00 GMT

(image) Weaker bones, impaired immune functions and increased susceptibility to disease are just some of the many consequences of ageing, but the precise genetic and molecular processes involved are not clearly understood. Ground-breaking EU-funded research is attempting to determine why and how we age, potentially leading to new treatments and dietary guidelines to slow down the process.

Research Headlines - Insights tying bone cells to rheumatoid arthritis

Mon, 07 Aug 2017 00:00:00 GMT

(image) An EU-funded project has generated new insights into the causes and development of rheumatoid arthritis, directing efforts towards earlier detection, prevention and the idea of inducing tolerance to this chronic and debilitating disease. Follow-up reearch includes new studies to further explore this 'tolerance' challenge and progress on a new antibody detecting device.

Research Headlines - Giving MS sufferers a better quality of life

Thu, 03 Aug 2017 00:00:00 GMT

(image) Although significant progress has been made in recent years in developing medication that slows the progression of multiple sclerosis, there has been little effort to treat the daily symptoms of the disease. The EU-funded MS Fatigue_Therapy project is doing just this, measuring fatigue and investigating potential treatments.

Success Stories - How robots can enhance the lives of Europe's elderly citizens

Thu, 22 Jun 2017 00:00:00 GMT

(image) Seventy-nine year old Isabel Neto shares her home with Hugo, a robot that's been designed to improve the quality of life for elderly people living alone. How, and to what extent, is that possible?

Success Stories - Could a 'smart mirror' replace your doctor for disease diagnosis?

Tue, 20 Jun 2017 00:00:00 GMT

(image) When you look into a Wize Mirror, it looks back at you. It is a prototype of a smart mirror that detects disease symptoms.

Research Headlines - Integrating better care for older people

Fri, 17 Feb 2017 00:00:00 GMT

(image) EU-funded project SUSTAIN aims to improve care services for the elderly by integrating the needs and wishes of patients. Such integrated, patient-centred care will promote better services and more choice for older people.

Research Headlines - Advanced robotics for assisted living

Tue, 07 Feb 2017 00:00:00 GMT

(image) The EU-funded RAMCIP project is developing a novel domestic service robot to assist the elderly, Alzheimer's patients and people suffering mild cognitive impairments with daily activities. The robot will be able to decide autonomously when and how to intervene to assist its user.
