Determine the optimal use of the superconductive quantum interference device (squid)/mri in low-field nmr. The technical advantages are a simpler magnet, a convenient, low cost magnet system for use in interventional procedures.
The aim is to place healthy hepatic cells into biodegradable biopolymers (such as poly-lactide-co-glycolide), implant them into laboratory animals and demonstrate that the cells survive and function in these animals.
The construction of hybridomas producing monoclonal antibodies for new, more specific diagnostic kits for the detection of colon cancer and some air allergens.
Development of anti-cancer vaccines. The technology combines a promising tumour antigen with a powerful vaccine vector to provide a specific immunotherapy.
A novel platform for the sustained intracellular delivery of therapeutic molecules.
The objective is to design and develop a histamine h3 receptor inverse agonist as a novel type of drug for use in the treatment of alzheimer's disease, obesity and/or epilepsy.
The aim is to obtain scientific and technological knowledge to develop a generic sterilisation and operation cassette for endoscopic instruments. Research targets: materials, configurations, construction, cleaning tubes, etc.
For some patients, voice production after laryngectomy is impossible.For others voice quality is unpredictable or poor to enable high-quality voice production for those patients, a voice-producing shunt prosthesis will be developed.
Method and equipment for heart tissue viability control during heart surgery operations will be developed using time-resolved, laser-induced fluorescence techniques, electrical activity mapping and thermovision.
The structural knowledge of the mutated androgen receptor ligand binding domain and its complexes with agonists and antagonists should shed light on controlling proliferation of prostate cancer cells, thus facilitating drug design.
