Image of the blod samples in the labThe EU-funded BLUEPRINT project has generated extensive epigenome data on healthy and diseased blood cells, developed new analysis methods and uncovered new information on how the innate immune system works.
Picture of glasses with the red and white wineEU-funded researchers have developed new yeast strains, providing winemakers with sustainable options to control vine pests, reduce the use of potentially harmful sulphite preservatives, and create new wine products - including fresh flavours and lower alcohol varieties.

In Slovenia, the University Rehabilitation Institute in Ljubljana is testing a unique robot that not only helps people to walk again but also to regain a sense of balance.

Illustrations of fluorescent epigenetic marks on DNAA novel approach to analysing DNA for signs of mutation and disease is leading to highly accurate tests for early-stage cancer, antibiotic resistance and genetic disorders, potentially revolutionising diagnostic medicine and saving lives.
Picture of doctors and nurses handsModern lifestyles can make it challenging to exercise daily. While doing more takes individual resolve, governments can lend a helping hand by building environments and by providing access to facilities that can help make physical activity part of the daily routine. The EU-funded REPOPA project took research about physical activity to real-life policymaking to make a more active society a reality.
Photo of an old woman's handsAn EU-funded project has generated new insights into the causes and development of rheumatoid arthritis, directing efforts towards earlier detection, prevention and the idea of inducing tolerance to this chronic and debilitating disease. Follow-up reearch includes new studies to further explore this 'tolerance' challenge and progress on a new antibody detecting device.
Picture of the men on the wheelchairAlthough significant progress has been made in recent years in developing medication that slows the progression of multiple sclerosis, there has been little effort to treat the daily symptoms of the disease. The EU-funded MS Fatigue_Therapy project is doing just this, measuring fatigue and investigating potential treatments.
