in this paper explore the use of terahertz (THz) spectroscopy as a promising technique for disease screening and especially for early gastric cancer diagnosis.
In this paper we propose a new three-dimensional (3D) in vitro model replicating the intestinal functioning aiming to dissect the stromal-epithelial interactions and evaluate the permeation of insulin, a model drug.

The overall aim of the Biocarrier – Biomaterials for Multistage Drug and Cell Delivery group is to develop molecularly-designed, cell-instructive biomaterials as 3D artificial matrices for the delivery of drugs, biomolecules, genes and cells with implications in tissue regeneration and cancer diagnosis and treatment.
The NERRI (Neuro-Enhancement: Responsible Research and Innovation) is a three-year project supported by the European Commission under the 7th Framework Programme which aims to contribute to the introduction of Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) in neuro-enhancement (NE) in the European Area and to shape a normative framework underpinning the governance of neuro-enhancement technologies.
