After an organ transplant, a patient must take powerful drugs to suppress rejection of the new body part. The EU-funded THE ONE STUDY project is testing whether some of the body's own immune cells can improve organ acceptance. Initial clinical trials are underway. [read more]
This meeting will facilitate communication between interested parties to encourage future research especially by fostering methodological rigour. [read more]
An EU-funded project has made it easier to develop an effective mix of interlocking policies that will help the EU meet its climate change and energy targets. The methodology includes applying real-world analysis and modelling to policy instruments. [read more]
Vienna calling! Pharma Business Development Insiders choose Vienna as one of the best summer venues for the 64th euroPLX Partnering Conference. [read more]
Antimicrobial drug resistance is an urgent problem. There are relatively few agents in developmental pipelines. Traditional pathways for drug development are expensive and slow. Both the EMA and FDA have recognized some of these obstacles for drug development. New regulation now enables accelerated drug development, with adaptive licensing until larger definitive phase III studies are completed. Such an approach enables access to drugs for patients with unmet medical needs. [read more]
Metagenomics, based on next-generation sequencing (NGS), has been available for a decade and is now widely used for research purposes. In parallel, clinicians are currently paying a growing interest in how NGS could help in the diagnosis and management of several diseases. [read more]
Within the BioEnergyTrain project :metabolon now offers the first Pilot Plant Course – Research Lab on Organic-waste exploitation in October 2016. The course is directed at students with an engineering background from all over Europe. The Pilot Plant Course gives the participants the opportunity to operate real-world installations, such as the biogas pilot plant, the leachate water treatment and the combustion plant. The course will be held at the :metabolon site, which is a modern waste disposal site in Leppe with research facilities for material conversion and location-related environmental technology and techniques.

Antibiotics are amongst the most crucial discoveries in modern medicine. However, the surge in microbial resistance to these, now common, drugs is a challenge that medical researchers work hard to tackle. Prof. Susanne Häußler from the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research believes early diagnostic tools could shift the paradigm of how we battle this problem. [read more]
This one-day event will showcase how innovative technology is being applied to the humanities and natural sciences. The conference speakers will demonstrate how researchers, curators and enthusiasts can use digital tools to explore historical and scientific material in new ways. An example is the EU-funded READ project, which seeks to unlock complex handwritten material in archival collections, to automatically index digital images of text, and to teach computers how to transcribe handwritten text. Cutting-edge transcription technology developed as part of the READ project will be demonstrated and discussed. [read more]
Funded by an EU grant, researchers from the University of Leicester are investigating an ancient Saharan population, called the Garamantes, dating back to the period from 500 BC to AD 600. The team's archaeological findings in southern Libya have proved to be crucial in shedding more light on this scarcely-known civilization and the history of pre-Islamic Africa. [read more]
