Development of new tools for tumour detection to link distant experts through computer assisted diagnosis, and planning and training of minimal invasive surgery through cooperative virtual reality and robotic systems.
Bioactive alginates (low guluronate) to be produced in-vivo in bacteria, and by in-vitro epimerisation of high mannuronate alginates from seaweed or bacteria. They will be used for wound healing, health supportive fish feed, fish vaccines and also combined with biopolymers for enhanced performance.
The photochemical internalisation (pci) technology will be used for site-specific enhancement of the therapeutic effect of anti-cancer drugs in a clinical trial on patients with head, neck and other types of cancer
To develop a system for ultrasound mediated drug delivery comprising sonosensitive liposomes and an ultrasound device. The project will run as a crossfunctional collaboration between cancercure, edap and inserm.
Development of a rapid and easy-to-use anti-epo affinity tool for purifying epo from urine and blood which facilitates characterisation of epo isoforms appearing during pathological conditions and differentiation of endogenous and recombinant epo during therapy and after illegal doping.
We will explore a novel type of cavvine against food allergy by designing a vaccine with an antibody-like structure using recombinant allergen and a targeting unit. Canditate molecules will be tested in-vitro and in an animal model.
To produce services and products for the rapid detection and identification of viruses in moroccan aquatic animals combining automatic image analysis of electron microscopy images and real-time rt-pcr. Success in this project is of great interest for the fish industry as a whole.
The main research and development challenges include development and optimisation of housing materials, sealing materials, and mechanical design for probe (transducer), cable fittings and connector (plug).
Aim of this project is to establish a numerical framework that can be used to understand the behaviour of human or animal tissue subjected to ballistic impacts from projectiles.
Developing of standardised method for detection of stress and pain at patients in Intensive Care Units (ICU)
