Connectivity aids successful surgery to separate craniopagus twins

ICT shortened the distance across the Atlantic Ocean between Rio de Janeiro and London, allowing the exchange of information and surgery rehearsals in real time in a virtual environment.

Making cross-border cancer research collaboration safe and secure

SURF's Research Cloud makes cutting-edge collaborative cancer research faster, more cost-effective and more impactful.

Relief ahead for dry irritated eyes with help from supercomputing

Gazing into computer screens for hours contributes to millions of people suffering from dry eye syndrome. Backed by supercomputing, Finnish researchers suggest better eye drop treatment.

Enabling researchers to reuse sensitive biomedical data

CSC has recently developed new services for sensitive data management for research so that data from more patients can be shared and analysed to fast-track discoveries.

Supercomputing takes cancer research to a new level

While a variety of genetic factors are known to play major roles in relation to cancer, the specific pathways still largely remain to be discovered. This is the main scope of computational biology.

Applying virtual reality technology to improve body image

Researchers in the BODYinTRANSIT project are studying how Body Transformation Experiences (BTE), or perceptual illusions of body change, can be engineered, to create the illusion of being something different than what they are in reality.

Epilepsy and ADHD brain research in Georgia

Irma Khachidze has been preparing the ground for novel computational methods to study such brain disorders in Georgia, supported by GRENA within the EU-funded EaPConnect project and its ‘Enlighten Your Research’ programme.

Gold-containing particles target cancer

Researchers at the University of Jyväskylä, Finland, have shown that gold nanoclusters are well suited for delivery of drugs specifically to cancer cells.

Digital assistance for Brazil’s COVID vaccinations

Severely hit by the global pandemic, passing 250,000 deaths in February 2021, and combating new virus variants, Brazil is urgently pursuing vaccinations.

Computing for a sustainable world

High performance computing in Denmark plays a crucial role in finding solutions to the challenges of the future, such as eliminating poverty and hunger, protecting our climate, reducing inequalities, promoting education and health, and sustainable economic growth

Large genome project tackles pandemic

COVID-19 has been added to the list of health threats addressed in the 1+Million Genomes Initiative (B1MG), a joint effort by 23 European countries.
