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.
A eureka consortium of scientists from research institutions and 8 leading plant breeding/biotechnology companies will apply innovative molecular techniques to solve urgent quality problems in the most important european cereals.
Development of anti-cancer vaccines. The technology combines a promising tumour antigen with a powerful vaccine vector to provide a specific immunotherapy.
The project addresses the need for improved toxicity assays for better risk assessment to reduce the number of animals used to test toxins and toxic effects. These assays will be developed as kits for commercial availability.
Acceleration and diversification of flavour formation in semi-hard cheeses, by controlling amino-acid catabolism with lactic acid bacteria (lab).
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.
