Ultrasion Joaquin Rodriguez ultrasonic moulding

In this interview, Optogenerapy partner Joaquin Rodríguez Díaz-Caneja, Project Manager at Ultrasion, explains us what is Ultrasonic Moulding and how this technology can be applied for the manufacturing of complex micro pieces for the biomedical sector that cannot be produced via traditional moulding techniques. What is Ultrasonic Moulding? Ultrasonic Moulding (USM) is a relatively new polymer transformation technology characterised by its innovative melting method. Unlike other moulding...

Elena Ordozgoiti UNE standardisation in H2020 projects

Standardisation is a voluntary agreement among the interested stakeholders, defining common provisions that facilitate their technical, commercial or managerial activities. Those common provisions conform the content of the standards, developed under the guaranteeing rules of the standardisation organizations.   Elena Ordozgoiti, UNE’s representative in Optogenerapy project, addresses in this interview the main reasons of why standardisation in H2020 projects is a key activity for maximising their impact and...

Optogenerapy partner GeneXplain has built a mathematical model to further improve and optimize the optogenetic pathway of Optogenerapy’s medical device. The model, which allows to predict the behaviour of the cells involved in the production of IFN- β drug for patients suffering from multiple sclerosis, can simulate different scenarios, helping to explore the system without spending resources on experiments.   In this interview, Kamilya Altynbekova, software developer...

Whenever we think of electronics, a PCB (Printed Circuit Board) full of conductive tracks and pads of laminated copper comes to our mind. The possibilities of electronics have been multiplied with printed electronics, a new technology that allows building electronics circuits using conventional printing techniques in a diverse set of materials, and provides extra functionalities to the surfaces and allows thinner, lighter and more adaptable...

The success of modern medicine results from a synergy between the development of drug delivery devices and the ever-growing drug industry. The Optogenerapy solution aims at disrupting the current drug delivery techniques proposing a cell-based implant able to produce a drug of interest directly inside the patient.   Project partner ETH-Zurich recently published a paper on this innovative solution. In this interview, Marc Folcher, senior scientist and...
