ImageClean water is a human right and a major contributor to sustainable development. But large parts of Africa still have very poor access to it. That needs to change and an EU-backed international consortium is working on clean water technology programmes targeting sub-Saharan Africa. Sustainable, locally-adapted solutions to this complex challenge are the key.
ImageA number of cutting-edge neuroscience methods have tremendous potential to help patients suffering from disorders of the nervous system. An EU-funded project is working to facilitate collaborative research, with the aim of better understanding cognitive impairments and improving patient outcomes.
ImageAn EU-funded project is building on the development of an upper-limb prosthesis controlled by the nervous system, which restores amputees' natural sensations and intuitive limb control. The aim is to create and market a similar solution for people who have lost lower limbs.
ImageAn EU-funded project to develop a super-resolution microscope platform capable of visualising DNA, mRNA and proteins in living cells could advance regenerative medicine, potentially leading to breakthroughs in replacing or restoring diseased or malfunctioning human cells, tissues or organs.

Vojtěch Adam is a recognized scientist in the field chemistry and biochemistry and he is an expert in the application of advanced materials in the biology. He particularly deals with metallothioneins, proteins with the ability to bind metals, with unique structure rich in cysteines.

He and his research team believe that these proteins are one of the key factors in preventing the emergence of resistance to cancer treatment with metal-based medicines. Confirmation of this fact could contribute to the more effective treatment of cancer in the future.

Prof Adam is the Vice-rector of the Mendel University in Brno and researcher at the CEITEC Brno University of Technology, Czech Republic. He holds ERC Starting Grant "Towards the Understanding a Metal-Tumour-Metabolismna" since 1 January 2018.

Science Café is a forum for discussion of current work and interesting scientific issues. It aims to be informal and accessible. Anyone can participate; speaker is there to be questioned and to talk about his work.

ImageWith the support of Russia's Almazov Medical Research Centre, the EU-funded SyStemAge project studied the molecular mechanisms of ageing in adult stem cells, the results of which indicate that the intervention of metabolic pathways could correct age-related alterations and diseases.
ImageSubstances that trigger prolonged immune responses contribute to the development of atherosclerosis. An EU-funded project is identifying these substances and the underlying mechanisms involved, opening the door to new management strategies for chronic inflammatory diseases.
ImageNovel therapies being developed by EU- and industry-funded researchers could prevent and cure rheumatoid arthritis by tackling the autoimmune disease in the very early stages, before debilitating symptoms occur.
ImageResearchers across south-east Europe and the eastern Mediterranean are benefitting from a powerful new e-infrastructure developed in an EU-funded project, which enables diverse scientific communities to conduct groundbreaking cross-border research spanning climatology, life sciences and cultural heritage.
