Over 30 million Europeans are blind or visually impaired, leading to reduced quality of life and a tremendous loss of productivity in society. Corneal blindness is the second largest cause of blindness globally and while treatable, millions remain unnecessarily blind due to issues of access to transplantable tissue, lack of standardized treatments, and the lag in translating new regenerative medic ...

Endoplasmic Reticulum Stress in Health and Disease (TRAIN-ERS)

Start date: Oct 1, 2015, End date: Sep 30, 2019,

Endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress is emerging as a common feature in the pathology of numerous diseases including cancer, neurodegenerative disorders, metabolic syndromes and inflammatory diseases. Thus ER stress represents a potential therapeutic intervention point to be exploited to develop novel therapies, diagnostic tools and markers for these diseases. However, exploitation is hampered by the ...

Citizen Interaction Technologies Yield Community Policing (CITYCoP)

Start date: Jun 1, 2015, End date: May 31, 2018,

Theories underlying community policing received new impetus with the recent advent of smartphones and social media and especially user-generated content (UGC) where citizens engage in closer interaction with their local community and law enforcement agency (LEA). The years 2010-2014 have seen a rapid upsurge of smartphone apps aimed at improving crime reporting and other forms of UGC and interacti ...

The next generation calcium phosphates demand refined processing routes for capturing the full potential of this elite class of materials. Calcium phosphates are unique with their potential to accept replacement ions in the structure, be processed through intermediate phases, and modify their crystal structure. This project will a) investigate the formation of high temperature processing in a radi ...

Bone defects resulting from trauma, tumor resection and bone diseases represent one of the most pressing health problems in the aging European population. Current treatments of bone defects depend on a functional population of bone-forming (osteogenic cells) to mediate the process of bone regeneration. However during aging, the bone formation capacity decreases as a result of multiple interacting ...

Rational Bioactive Materials Design for Tissue Regeneration (BIODESIGN)

Start date: Jan 1, 2012, End date: Dec 31, 2016,

The development of functional materials for tissue regeneration is today mostly based on perceived and limited design criteria often using a single point approach with lengthy animal trials. The outcome after in-vitro and in-vivo evaluation is often disappointing resulting in a tedious iteration process. The main objective of this project is to achieve radical innovations in state-of-the-art bioma ...

Injectable Medical Ceramics for Bone Repair and Augmentation (IMCOSS)

Start date: Dec 1, 2012, End date: Nov 30, 2014,

The repair and regeneration of bone tissue remains a significant clinical challenge in many clinical fields including orthopaedics, dentistry, and maxillofacial surgery. The problem is increasing in the face of complicating factors such as the ageing population. The aim of this project is to undertake a basic scientific study of new nanostructured biomaterials that will underpin the development ...

Angiogenesis underlies almost all biological processes of morphogenesis, including those in tissue repair and regeneration. Physiological angiogenesis is controlled by a complex interplay between cells and their environment: the extracellular matrix (ECM) provides signaling via numerous ECM adhesion molecules and growth factors bound to ECM polysaccharide components; and cells locally degrade and ...
