Innovative equipment has been developed to help patients regain control of limbs despite an injury that stops the transmission of signals through the spinal cord. But what if this transmission could actually be re-established? An EU-funded project is working on an innovative implant, but there is still a very long way to go.

EU-industry funded researchers have worked to identify and characterise signs of cancer, particularly colon cancers, and patients' responses to different types of treatment. The aim is to help doctors choose the best possible treatment for an individual patient's condition, potentially improving and saving lives.
