"Nerve pain affects millions of people, and can be personally devastating for people who experience it. Current methods for pain management (e.g. local injection of pain killers) are inadequate because of the short duration of action. Even sustained release treatments, such as drug-loaded liposomes, provide only one week of analgesia producing a continuous extended nerve blockade without allowing ...

Living tissues are regulated by multi-cellular collectives mediated at cellular level through complex interactions between mechanical and biochemical factors. A further understanding of these mechanisms could provide new insights in the development of therapies and diagnosis techniques, reducing animal experiments. I propose a combined and complementary methodology to advance in the knowledge of h ...

The world of geographic information (GI) is, at present, extremely heterogeneous. User and system requirements, too varied to be satisfied by a single system or technology, have led to an utter lack of agreement on interoperability standards, creating a barrier to realizing the full exploitation potential of GI. ENERGIC OD will address these problems by adopting a broker architectural approach, de ...

"While heterogeneous catalysis is often considered a mature science, the so-called enabling technologies are often able to produce significant enhancements in the rate of reaction or in the selectivity towards a given product. Two of these enabling technologies constitute the focal point of this project, where nonclassical energy input by microwave iradiation and alternative reaction engineering ( ...

Graphene-Based Revolutions in ICT And Beyond (GRAPHENE)

Start date: 01 Oct 2013, End date: 31 Mar 2016,

This Flagship aims to take graphene and related layered materials from a state of raw potential to a point where they can revolutionize multiple industries – from flexible, wearable and transparent electronics, to new energy applications and novel functional composites.Our main scientific and technological objectives in the different tiers of the value chain are to develop material technologies fo ...

Nano Art Research Tool (NANOART)

Start date: 01 Feb 2014, End date: 31 Jan 2016,

“Our ordinary language has no means for describing a particular shade of colour” (Ludwig Wittgenstein in Philosophical Remarks, Chicago: The University of Chicago Press, 1984). This interdisciplinary project, combining Conservation Science, Nanotechnology, Restoration and Art History, aims to confront this problem regarding the binders applied in paintings, sculptures and illuminated manuscripts, ...

"Nature has been utilizing nanostructures for billion of years. The following two properties, (i) being about the size of typical biological objects and (ii) the possibility of tailoring their properties by changing their size, make nanoparticles attractive for biomedical applications. Using nanoparticles to deliver drugs to tumours offers an attractive possibility to avoid obstacles that occur du ...

Gaseous detectors like TPCs are seldom used in Rare Event searches (like those looking for Dark Matter particles, Neutrinoless Double Beta Decay or other neutrino experiments) due mainly to the difficulty in reaching target masses large enough to be sensitive to the extremely low counting rates expected. However, very promising recent advances in TPC readouts based on micropatterns (e.g. the Micro ...

"The cooperative chemistry of polyoxometalates (POMs) and metal nanoparticles (NPs) still remains a relatively unexplored area of the chemical sciences despite showing remarkable potential in fields as diverse as catalysis and medicine. The ability to exert synthetic control during the self-assembly of any nanostructured material constructed from molecular precursors is of fundamental importance f ...

Dendrimers are new materials obtained with a highly controlled molecular structure in several space orientations. Liquid Crystals (LC) Dendrimers are a part of them that incorporate directional properties to these materials. If we append active molecules into these engineered molecules, we can obtain multifunctional anisotropic molecules that open the possibility of achieving a wide variety of phy ...
