Bio-inspired optical corrections of presbyopia (PRESBYOPIA)

Start date: May 1, 2012, End date: Apr 30, 2018,

The human crystalline lens has the capability to dynamically change its shape to focus near and far objects. By age 55, the accommodation capability is lost and optical aids are needed for near vision. Many questions remain open that are critical to understand accommodation, the failure in presbyopia, and the prospects for its correction. Multifocal presbyopic corrections are increasingly used.

Marine Metagenomics for New Biotechnological Applications (MAMBA)

Start date: Jul 1, 2009, End date: Jun 30, 2013,

"The Project aims at the mining of individual enzymes and metabolic pathways from extremophilic marine organisms and the metagenomes from microbial communities from peculiar marine environments and consequent funnelling the new enzymatic reactions and processes towards the new biotechnological applications. Project builds up on the scientific and technological excellence of individual academic and ...
