Special Feature- Obesity: EU Research battles the bulge
This edition of Research*EU magazine covers obesity in their special feature, or more specifically how innovative EU-funded projects under the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) and Horizon 2020 are undertaking dedicated research to answer the following crucial questions: What are the real root causes of obesity? How can better understanding of these causes help us develop better treatments? And how can we best support those who are currently overweight or obese?
In the Life After feature, we have a good catch up with the coordinator of the TIME SCALE project, who happily updates us on her team's efforts to develop out-of-this-world life support systems to allow the growth of crops and algae in a space-faring environment.
In Project of the Month we highlight the INTENS project, which contributed to an innovative study recently published in ‘Nature’ that showed how all cells in the foetal gut have the potential to be developed into stem cells, whilst EU Agenda summarises some of the best events featuring EU-funded projects that will take place in September, once everyone is back from the long summer holiday.
