In order to find new efficient and safe agents for gene delivery, the goal is to develop and produce already synthesized and designed novel charged amphiphiles on the basis of pyridinium derivates.
Prototype hiv vaccines consisting of dna vectors that express either single hiv genes or artificial genes consisting of several genes and gene fragments will be tested for safety, immunogenicity and therapeutic effect in clinical trials and for a therapeutic effect in an animal model.
Delfia kits for 1st trimester preeclampsia (5-7% of pregnancies) tests will be developed with europium fluorometry & computerised robotic arms for accurate & fast testing. Verified clinically, and fda & ce registered, the kit will improve patient access & enhance sales for women's health.
A clinically relevant test with the corresponding equipment and laboratory material will be developed to determine microvesicles (sub-micron fragments of cells) from blood for diagnostics and treatment. The market consists of research and clinical laboratories worldwide.
This project aims to develop a multi-parametric functional imaging method by integrating signals from whole brain mapping via meg (finland) and simultaneous eeg-fmri (israel). The new tool will enable a concise functional network signaturing, thus improving brain-based diagnosis and treatment.
