A well-functioning locomotor system is essential for human well-being. This is an important consideration in our aging population with the increased associated costs of ensuring high quality of life. Many people suffer from diseases of the locomotor system, such as bone defects or osteoarthritis, for which current treatments are insufficient. To develop new treatments, CarBon includes 6 academic p ...

A Centre of Excellence in Computational Biomedicine (CompBioMed)

Start date: Oct 1, 2016, End date: Sep 30, 2019,

This Centre of Excellence will advance the role of computationally based modelling and simulation within biomedicine. Three related user communities lie at the heart of the CoE: academic, industrial and clinical researchers who all wish to build, develop and extend such capabilities in line with the increasing power of high performance computers. Three distinct exemplar research areas will be purs ...

MUltiSectoral Integrative approaches to CArdiac care (MUSICA)

Start date: Jan 1, 2015, End date: Dec 31, 2018,

MUltiSectoral Integrative approaches to CArdiac care – MUSICA - is proposed by a team of universities, companies and hospitals from 4 EU countries (Italy, United Kingdom, The Netherlands, Belgium). The main scope of MUSICA is to structure a new trans-sectoral and multidisciplinary network capable of developing research and technology with no barriers between academia, industries and clinicians in ...

Degeneration of cartilage is a major cause of chronic pain, lost mobility and reduced quality of life for millions of European citizens. From a clinical point of view treatment to achieve cartilage regeneration (hyaline) and not only repair (fibrous) remains a great challenge. No clinical therapy is available that leads to healing of cartilage defects.Current cartilage implants cannot establish th ...

Small Artery Remodelling (SmArteR)

Start date: Nov 1, 2013, End date: Oct 31, 2017,

Cardiovascular disease remains a major cause of morbidity and mortality in Europe. Small arteries form a key element in the pathogenesis. Thus, these vessels dictate local perfusion and blood pressure by adaptation of their caliber. Structural changes towards smaller caliber, small artery remodelling, cause hypertension and decreased organ perfusion, leading to acute events and chronic end organ d ...

Bioactive Implantable Polymers based on UreidoPyrimidinone (BIP-UPy)

Start date: Feb 1, 2013, End date: Jan 31, 2017,

BIP-UPy addresses the need for biomedical implants which can be easily fine-tuned in their properties in regards to bioactivity, biodegradability, and mechanical performance, and thereby be optimized for their targeted clinical application.This project will develop a library comprising of a selection of synthetic polymers and specific bioactivities which can be used to provide the required propert ...

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) has a significant impact on the European society in terms of mortality, morbidity and allied healthcare costs. The opportunity of multi-scale modelling spanning, sub-cellular level up to whole heart is to improve CVD outcomes by providing a consistent, biophysically-based framework for the integration of the huge amount of fragmented and inhomogeneous data currently av ...
