Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is a major cause of death and disability, leading to great personal suffering to victim and relatives, as well as huge direct and indirect costs to society. Strong ethical, medical, social and health economic reasons therefore exist for improving treatment. The CENTER-TBI project will collect a prospective, contemporary, highly granular, observational dataset of 5400 p ...

The Developing Human Connectome Project (dHCP)

Start date: Sep 1, 2013, End date: Aug 31, 2019,

Few advances in neuroscience could have as much impact as a precise global description of human brain connectivity and its variability. Understanding this ‘connectome’ in detail will provide insights into fundamental neural processes and intractable neuropsychiatric diseases.The connectome can be studied at millimetre scale in humans by neuroimaging, particularly diffusion and functional connectiv ...

Most joints start off the same during embryonic development, as two opposing cartilage surfaces, and are moulded into the diverse range of shapes seen in the adult in a process known as morphogenesis. While we understand very little of the biological or mechanobiological processes driving joint morphogenesis, there is evidence to suggest that fetal movements play a critical role in joint shape dev ...

Silicon Nitride Coatings for Improved Implant Function (LifeLongJoints)

Start date: Apr 1, 2013, End date: Mar 31, 2018,

Articulating joint replacements represent a medical market exceeding €14 billion p.a. that is expected to rise as demographics reflect an ageing population. However, faster growth has been seen in the revision market, where prosthetic joints are replaced, than in primary interventions. The major cause of these revisions is that all joint replacements are prone to wear leading to loss of implant fu ...
