ImageAn EU-funded project is enabling young European biomedical researchers to organise annual scientific symposia, career days and outreach activities. The aim is to connect them with prominent scientists and give them the skills and experience to advance their own careers.
ImageLeading European institutes are combining their know-how to advance research into tumour biology, establishing an EU-funded network that promises to contribute to the development of new treatments, insights and technologies to combat cancer.
ImageA loan backed by the InnovFin-EU finance for innovators initiative under the EU's Horizon 2020 programme and the European Investment Bank (EIB) is supporting construction of the European Spallation Source (ESS) research centre. Its powerful neutron beams will open up opportunities for researchers in a range of disciplines.

The White Rose Universities of Leeds, Sheffield and York are home to some of the top European Centres in Advanced Imaging and Microscopy studying at a macromolecular level the impact of disease on individual cells, using a wealth of first class equipment to conduct world leading biological research.

Hear our panel of experts present their cutting edge research on the use of advanced imaging in the design of new medicines for the future. For the first time, imaging at near atomic level produces amazing pictures of cells actively dividing, incredible detail of organ damage eg to the lungs and investigation of how cells behave when attacked by a virus.

ImageThe EU-funded DIGE project is exploring what happens when a traditional, practical knowledge of plants and animals unified, eroded or centralised by a dominant group, and the impacts on natural resources, health, economies and the well-being of local communities.
ImageA loan supported by the InnovFin-EU finance for innovators initiative under the EU's Horizon 2020 programme and extended by the European Investment Bank is helping Spanish start-up STAT-Dx develop automated molecular diagnostic tests. Such tests slash the time it takes to detect and treat serious gastrointestinal and respiratory infections in patients in emergency departments and intensive care units.
ImageDoctors often face ethical dilemmas in their work. One issue is medical complicity - indirectly doing wrong by supporting others' wrongdoing. An EU-funded project has been developing an ethical framework to help doctors make difficult decisions.
ImageAn EU-funded project developed a simple, affordable and effective vaccine strategy to prevent the incidence of both hepatitis C virus and HIV-1. This could significantly increase the life expectancy of people receiving antiretroviral therapy for HIV-1.
ImageAn EU-funded team of scientists from Spain, Germany and Denmark is investigating a radical new MRI-based technique for ultra-detailed, real-time imaging of living cells. Results could transform cancer research, neuroscience, biophysics - and more.
ImageInnovative 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.
ImageEU-funded researchers are striving to create a safer and healthier world for future generations by accurately assessing the risks of chemicals associated with developmental disorders, sexual development and growth and metabolism in children.
ImageAn EU-funded project has advanced breast cancer detection to uncover tumours that are difficult to spot and frequently missed by current technology. The technology could help to save lives and avoid unnecessary biopsies.
ImageMonoclonal antibodies have emerged as a powerful weapon in the fight against a variety of diseases, including several types of cancer - but producing them remains a costly process. Crystallisation is the way forward, say EU-funded researchers working on an innovation that could make it easier, greener and far more affordable.
ImageRoughly 151 million people worldwide suffer from osteoarthritis, meaning that they experience chronic pain, reduced mobility and limited quality of life. Attempts to repair cartilage thus far have offered limited functionality and only temporary pain reduction. The usual course of action is therefore to replace the entire joint, rather than repair the damaged cartilage. A team of researchers from the EU and Australia is however working on a promising alternative in which 3D printing plays a key role.
