Millions of Europeans suffering from one of the many rare diseases will have a new hope for improved diagnostics and better treatments and care, resulting in enhanced quality of life. This is thanks to a new research partnership launched by the European Commission.
With a better understanding of how Klebsiella Pneumoniae evades our body's immune system, researchers with the EU-funded U-KARE project are developing new treatments based on boosting our defences against the potentially deadly disease.
Humankind has always had a fascination with the brain - how it develops, how it works and how things can go wrong. By tracking a neuron's path through the brain, neuroscientists with the EU-funded MOMECODE project have given us new insight into how the brain develops.
The EU-funded UPECBCG project set out to study the bladder's immune system, with the aim of advancing our understanding of UTI and bladder cancer to improve treatment of these diseases.
Cells are packed with proteins, encoded by the recipes in our genes. An EU-funded researcher has discovered key differences in protein production between healthy cells and tumours, revealing exciting potential avenues for the development of future cancer treatments.
The European Spallation Source (ESS) will be the world's most powerful source of neutrons, a key tool in advancing materials science and technological progress. An EU-funded project has supported the development of ESS, which could lead to scientific breakthroughs that improve our quality of life.
A new generation of particle accelerators will help physicists explore the mysteries of the universe, provide engineers with novel tools to combat pollution and enable doctors to treat cancer more effectively. An EU-funded project is leading the advance, developing technologies that are set to have a profound impact on science and society.
EU-funded researchers are leading efforts to develop a functional cure for HIV using innovative therapeutic vaccines to halt the progression of the devastating virus, increase the availability and affordability of treatment, and improve patients' quality of life.
An emotionally intelligent, partially autonomous social robot could help children with autism spectrum disorder improve their social skills, according to EU-funded researchers who have been developing the next generation of robot-enhanced therapy.
