Special Feature: Innovative EU Research Targets Breast Cancer

Summary:

This month's special feature focuses on the research of seven EU-funded projects working to improve our understanding of breast cancer, as well as patient outcomes.  Life After returns to see how the BILLON project is helping Europeans participate in the ever-growing digital economy, using blockchain technology to enable cross-border payments and instant bank-to-bank transfers.  Meanwhile, the research behind headlines suggesting that the Gulf Stream shows signs of collapse is supported by TiPES, our Project of the Month.
