- 26-29 June, 2022 – Professor Marco Fanciulli’s lab presented “Plasma-assisted ALD of iro2 for neuroelectronic applications” at the 22nd International Conference on Atomic Layer Deposition in Gent, Belgium.
- 23-26 May 2022 – Professor Panayiota Poirazi’s lab presented a poster titled “NEUREKA: A smart, hybrid neural-silico-computo device for drug discovery” at the EMBO Workshop on Dendrites in Heraklion, Greece.
- 17-16 May, 2022 – Professor Stefano Vassanelli’s lab presented a poster titled “Alzheimer’s Disease: a new perspective for a brain-on-a-chip model” at the 4th International Conference on Stem Cells, Development and Cancer in Lyon, France
NEUREKA coordinator Yiota Poirazi was recently featured in an interview by the Einstein Foundation Berlin as part of the “Elephants and Butterflies” series.
We are excited to announce the addition of a new member of our team, Dr. Praveena Manogaran, who recently joined NEUREKA on behalf of MaxWell Biosystems. Praveena is Senior Scientist at MaxWell Biosystems and is responsible for conducting scientific collaborative projects, leading R&D experiments to develop bioassays and protocols, scientific dissemination as well as grant acquisition and management.
NEUREKA just concluded its consortium meeting in the facilities of LAAS-CNRS in Toulouse. This was the first meeting to be conducted in vivo, as all the previous meetings except the Kick-off meeting were conducted virtually through teleconference due to the pandemic. The meeting was attended by participants from all the members of NEUREKA and provided a great opportunity to catch up with the progress of each team and resolve any pending issues.
The NEUREKA project was a Featured project in the latest 2021 Impact Report of the European Innovation Council which was recently published. The feature includes a brief statement from Project Coordinator Dr. Yiota Poirazi:
Prof. Marco Fanciulli presented the work related to Neureka in the recent SURFINT-SREN (Progress in Applied Surface, Inteface and Thin Film Science – Solar Renewable Energy News) VII online conference (November 22-25)
NEUREKA participant Ines Muguet from LAAS/CNRS will present the results regarding the PEDOT:pss coating on the nanoprobes at the Materials Research Society Fall 2021 meeting in Boston.
NEUREKA partners at UNIPD have developed the Synaptor model, which is crucial for calibrating the delivery of stimulation to the cultured neurons in the NEUREKA device.
We are excited to announce that we are organizing the first Maxwell Biosystems User Meeting this April!
The NEUREKA partners at LAAS-CNRS have developerd the first generation 60-channel NanoElectrode Array (NEA) platfrom with Pt-based nanoprobes on 1D nanostructures.
