About the project
"Glowbrain" or "Combining Stem Cells and Biomaterials for Brain Repair - Unlocking the Potential of the Existing Brain Research through Innovative In Vivo Molecular Imaging"
The aim of this three-year project is the introduction of cutting-edge technology that will enable Croatian scientists to research stem cell and to track them during the brain damage repair of our experimental model - mouse. Apart from Croatian researchers, the project includes renowned scientists from seven countries of the European Union (Austria, Czech Republic, Italy, Hungary, Germany, Portugal and Sweden) whose knowledge in the field of stem cells, biomaterials and mouse brain imaging will help us to successfully participate in leading researches in this area. The main objectives of the project are modernization, innovation and education, and informing the general public about the importance of new approaches in brain diseases treatments.
Project GlowBrain is inviting you after successful project conclusion to promotion of a book "GlowBrain - Unlocking the Potential of Brain Research" which emerged as one of the results of the project.
The promotion will be on 26.10.2016. at 14:00 in "Čačković" hall of School of Medicine University of Zagreb.
The project GlowBrain lasted 3 and the half year and 7 international partners participated in it, along with numerous associates and employees of School of Medicine University of Zagreb.
New equipment was purchased with funds of European Union such, such as a magnetic resonance imaging device for small animals and bioluminescence imaging device. A new Laboratory for Renegerative Croatian Neuroscience of Croatian Institute for Brain Research, the so-called "GlowLab", was renovated with School of Medicine University of Zagreb own resources and is intended for preclinical studies of brain diseases, especially stroke.
With the launch of the book project coordinator prof. Srećko Gajović and GlowBrain team will present the final results of the project and to celebrate a report accepted by the European Commission. We hereby invite you to join us in the celebration and get your copy GlowBrain book.
GlowBrain project coordinator recently particepated at a TEDx event organized in Osijek with a talk "Why our brains glow?". The video footage of his presentation is now available on our GlowBrain TV page and on our Facebook thread.Read more...
IPR workshop; 21.-22.12.2015.
How can research results create value and benefit scientists? Practical
issues of commercialization and protection of IP
Within the frame of EU FP7 Glowbrain project we are organizing an IPR workshop on 21.-22.December 2015.
at the Croatian Institute for Brain Research, lecture room ground floor.
Within the EU FP7 GlowBrain project, 7. Work package - Ex-post Evaluation of UniZAG research potential, it is envisaged the engagement of Evaluators by the European Commission. Evaluators will visit Zagreb twice, the first time in order to gain insight into the activities that were going on in the project, and the second time to present their report.Read more...
