Rare diseases and genetic disorders under the microscope
This issue of Research*EU results magazine puts ‘Rare diseases and genetic disorders under the microscope’ by showcasing the latest findings from EU-funded projects in the regular ‘biology and medicine’ section. We interviewed Dr Gloria González, principal researcher in the AIPGENE project which is looking into a new treatment for Acute intermittent porphyria (AIP), as well as Dr Charles Redwood from the University of Oxford who coordinated the BIG-HEART project. The latter looks into hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, one of the main causes of death among athletes. Following ‘biology and medicine’, the ‘social sciences and humanities’ section opens with ‘Enriching European humanities’.
The ‘energy and transport’ section starts with ‘The road to greener SME involvement’, followed by the ‘environment’ section which kicks off with ‘Infrastructure recycling hits the road’. ‘IT and telecommunications’ begins with ‘Advanced radio technologies for fairer 4G communications’, followed by the ‘industrial technologies’ section with a story entitled ‘Researchers help develop next-generation bio-plastic materials’.
Finally, ‘space’ reveals how the EU is on track for ‘Advancing engine technologies for space exploration’.
