BeyondSilos Learning from integrated eCare practice and promoting deployment in European Regions.

Call
Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme (CIP). CIP-ICT-PSP.2013.3.1b.
Investigador principal
Dr. Bernardo Valdivieso Martínez
Role
Participant

BeyondSilos is an EU co-funded pilot project that allows providers in seven European regions to implement and pilot integrated social and health care services. A key role in the services will be played by different ICT tools (from home health monitoring to shared data records) that will be utilised to enable better cooperation between care professionals, family members and those receiving care. .

HeCaToS Hepatic and Cardiac Toxicity Sustems Modelling.

Call
EU 7th Framework Programme (HEALTH-F4-2013-602156).
Investigador principal
Dr. José Vicente Castell Ripoll
Role
Participant

The HeCaToS project aims at developing integrative in silico tools for predicting human liver and heart toxicity. The objective is to develop an integrated modeling framework, by combining advances in computational chemistry and systems toxicology, for modelling toxic perturbations in liver and heart across multiple scales.

Mechaggrenamics Mechanisms of cell dysfunction by aggregation dynamics of polyQ-containing proteins.

Call
EU FP7-PEOPLE-2012-CIG - Marie-Curie Action: "Career Integration Grants".
Investigador principal
Dr. Rafael Vázquez Manrique
Role
Individual

Protein aggregation is a hallmark of several ageing-related neurodegenerative diseases. Different cellular pathways influence the rate of aggregation, and clearance of intermediate protein species and aggregates in the cell. The broad objective of this proposal is to find molecules that modulate protein aggregation. The second objective is to understand the mechanism by which mHtt toxic species alter cellular processes.
