NEPHSTROM is showcased on the CORDIS website

Journalists from the European Commission have recently reported on NEPHSTROM in order to showcase the project on the CORDIS website. CORDIS is the Community Research and Development Information Service. It is the European Commission’s primary public repository and portal to disseminate information on all EU-funded research projects and their results in the broadest sense.

The CORDIS news piece entitled “Novel therapy for diabetic kidney disease” was published on 3 January 2019 in six languages. The story appears in German, English, Spanish, French, Italian and Polish.

In addition, find the NEPHSTROM factsheet and public reports on the CORDIS website here.

 

NEPHSTROM public exhibition at Galway Science & Technology Festival 2018

NEPHSTROM Scientific Project Manager Dr Grace Davey amongst many other NUI Galway researchers participated at the Galway Science and Technology Festival Exhibition Day on Sunday, 25 November 2018. The interactive NEPHSTROM display in the Bailey Allen Hall of the National University of Ireland Galway exhibited models and props which helped to explain diabetes and its complications and future plans for cell therapy to a general audience. A set of stir tank bioreactors was on display to illustrate the technology required to produce large batches of human bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs) for use as a cell therapy.
