Medicine and Health
(8 projects)

  A chemically and physiologically inert oxygen-carrying body fluid substitute
  An improved, low-cost and environmentally-friendly oxygenating emulsion replaces blood during open-heart and other surgery, in organ transplants, imaging and cancer treatment.
  Cement makes an impact on medical implants
  A new glass polyalkenoate cement for biomedical applications combines ion leachable fluoro-alumino-silicate glass with polyacrylic acid, eliminating loosening and device failure.
  Contactless position sensors based on giant magnetic resistivity (GMR)
  A new GMR sensor for contactless measurement of direction, position, speed and angle of weak magnetic fields has potential for automotive, automation and medical applications.
  High-performance rubber bearings for seismic and vibration isolation
  New high-damping rubber bearings (HDRB) allow improved anti-seismic protection of buildings, gas tanks and other structures during natural disasters.
  New high-performance nanoparticle systems for medical diagnosis and treatment
  Advanced superparamagnetic nanoparticles can be coupled with biotechnological molecules for use in imaging and other applications for cancer and for diagnosis and treatment.
  New high-performance rare earth magnets for a wide variety of applications
  Very powerful permanent magnets, ten times more powerful than traditional magnets, allow reductions in size and improvements in the performance of a wide variety of devices.
  Purification of optical isomers by continuous chromatography
  A new simulated moving bed (SMB) chromatography technique including new chiral stationary phases (CSPs) and software are a step forward for Europe.
  Supersensitive tools make surgery safer
  Novel sensors and software provide safer, more consistent and more rapidly available operations where previously exceptionally skilled and experienced surgeons have been required.
