Photo of article Self-powered platform holds promise as point-of-care biosensor

A single test strip - the first platform to couple a methanol fuel cell with a biosensor - could act as a self-powered, easy-to-use, disposable, and low-cost test for diseases such as cancer, say EU-funded researchers.

Photo of article New microscope technology sharpens the focus on viruses

EU-funded researchers have employed quantum physics to develop an optical microscope that opens up the potential to view the tiniest of objects - including many viruses - directly for the first time.

Photo of article Dosage mapping tracks cancer radiotherapy more closely

A non-invasive system being developed by EU-funded researchers could make radiotherapy a safer and more-effective treatment for cancer patients by creating a visual dosage map of the tumour and the surrounding healthy tissue.

Photo of article Tackling tinnitus with innovative and individualised therapies

Tinnitus, the perception of hearing noise when no external sound is present, affects more than 40 million people across Europe. Many could benefit from an EU-funded project that is exploring innovative personalised solutions to quieten the often debilitating and chronic condition.

Photo of article Creating sustainable value from used nappies

Disposable nappies, or diapers, are a hygienic time-saver - but one with an environmental impact. An EU and industry-funded project has developed collection and recycling systems that turn used nappies and similar products into profitable new materials for more sustainable use.

Photo of article New blood for healthcare technology innovation

The potential for new advances drawing on medical physics and biomedical engineering is vast. Cross-disciplinary expertise is needed to unlock it for the benefit of society and industry, say the partners in an EU-funded network that is helping 15 young researchers to hone the required skills.

Photo of article Decoding 'bubbles' from bodily fluids to diagnose disease

Miniscule messenger bubbles floating in all your bodily fluids could hold important insights into many complex diseases from Alzheimer's to heart disease - if they can be isolated, analysed and their messages decoded. An EU-funded researcher has made significant strides toward achieving that goal.
