Continuous two-dimensional Stretch monitoring of fresh tissue Biopsies

Mechanical tension and stresses are considered key factors associated to the control of the growth and proliferation of tumoral cells and tissues. Monitoring of such stresses would help to better understand cancer progression and also to test the effectiveness of anticancer...

(Mock) Modular Forms are Everywhere

The main goal of this proposal is to investigate and explain modularity of q-series. Modular forms generalize classical trigonometric functions because they are periodic; however, they have more symmetries. They play a central role in many areas including algebraic topology...

Key enabling manufacturing technology for low-cost and sustainable production of fibre-based rigid packaging at scale

Plastic is widely known as one of the most significant and rapidly growing sources of industrial waste, with the EU alone estimated to generate 25.8 Mt of plastic waste every year (58 kg/person). Packaging is the main use of plastic, accounting for 60 % of the total plastic...

Modulating Human Subjective Time Experience

Although time can be measured objectively, human time perception is remarkably subjective and influenced by individual motivations, cognitive states, and social factors. In stressful conditions, we often experience a lack of time, whereas on more relaxing occasions we might...

Revolutionary Platform to Decipher Immunogenicity of Tumour Neoantigens- the Ultimate Targets for Future Immunotherapies to Eradicate Cancer

Immunotherapy has revolutionised cancer treatment, providing survival benefits in patients with hard-to-treat tumours. Tragically, these benefits are unevenly distributed. Clinical efficacy varies dramatically between (and within) cancer types, and severe side-effects persist...
