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 stemcells, 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.

We expect to gain important experience from our trainings at the Partnering Institutions and trainings. Our efforts will produce the following results:

  • obtaining state of the art equipment necessary for Croatian scientists to get involved into leading edge research
  • reversing “Brain Drain” into “Brain Gain” – return of quality scientists to Croatia
  • updating and mastering the most advanced methods in isolation, transplantation, labeling and differentiation of stem cells
  • starting a successful exchange of comparable batches of stem cells
  • improving and mastering methodology and approach in synthesis of biomaterials and their influence on stem cell behavior
  • learning advanced techniques in BLI-based tracing of stem cells
  • mastering the MRI approach in visualization of stem cells
  • improving our knowledge on advanced software for 3D imaging reconstruction
  • exchanging experience in analysis of bioimages and advancing our methods in combining various visualization methods
  • supporting innovations and generation of new intellectual property as well as improving methods of IP management of University of Zagreb School of Medicine
