Health and Environment: A 6 million-euro hi-tech pole at the ENEA Research Centre near Bologna

A pole of excellence for health and the environment, specializing in the development of advanced technologies in the fields not only of nuclear medicine and ionizing radiation for oncological diagnosis and therapies, but also hi-tech drones for monitoring the security of strategic infrastructures such as bridges and viaducts. This is the goal of the three projects − accounting for a total sum of 6 million euros − that will be implemented in the ENEA Research Centre of Brasimone

Research: ENEA develops a tool for the study of coronary prostheses

ENEA has finalized a tool for the study of new bioabsorbable prostheses for coronary cardiopathy treatment. Created in collaboration with the California Institute of Technology as part of the European Bi-Stretch-4-Biomed[1] project coordinated by ENEA, this tool can expand polymer or composite tubes. This is the first step in their transformation into a cardiovascular scaffold, i.e. a prosthesis capable of keeping an obstructed vessel open, thus restoring arterial blood flow.
