Twins help find genetic link to joint pain
The development of EU-funded gene sequencing tools have helped analyse data on twins that have promising implications for diagnosing chronic joint pain.
New research warns of increased hurricane risk to the northeast United States
New research published by the EU-funded HURRICANE project has highlighted how the north eastern coast of the USA could be struck by more frequent and more powerful hurricanes in the future due to shifting weather patterns.
EU-funded astronomers discover ‘James Dean’ of stars
Located nearly 11 000 light years away, a recently discovered star could provide EU-funded astronomers with new clues as to how the universe’s most massive stars are formed.
Leg movement restored using innovative wireless neural interface
Three EU-funded projects – NEUWALK, WALK AGAIN and E-WALK – have contributed to the development of a wireless ‘brain-spinal interface’ that bypasses spinal cord injuries and restores intentional walking movement to a temporarily paralysed leg.
Genetic plant modifications found to increase disease resistance
A new study supported by the EU-funded TRIFORC project has shown that by changing the genetic code for one amino acid in a plant begins a process that produces a new natural product that could be used in a variety of ways, including disease resistance.

Mathematical models able to calculate large group social behaviour
EU-funded mathematicians under the HDSPCONTR project have developed a series of algorithms and mathematical models that can predict and influence the behaviour of social groups.

Trending Science: Landmark ruling lifts the lid on the hope, science and ethics of cryogenic preservation
Following the granting of a young British girl’s instructions to be cryogenically preserved so she can be revived in the future when a cure for cancer exists, there has been intense debate inside and outside the scientific community on both the viability of cryogenic freezing but also on the ethical issues thrown up by the procedure. Once again, it raises the centuries-old question that defines the conflict between modern science and ethics: Even if we could do something, should we?
