Prestigious grant HORIZON EUROPE - “BEATsep” will tackle long-term consequences of sepsis.
The research consortium BEATsep, established by the Cellular and Molecular Immunoregulation (CMI) research team at the International Clinical Research Centre (ICRC), has been awarded a 6.9 million euro HORIZON EUROPE grant. The project entitled “Biomarkers established to stratify sepsis long-term adverse effects to improve patients’ health and quality of life (BEATsep) aims to define markers of poor recovery of patients after sepsis and septic shock. This will be achieved through the discovery of novel mechanisms and their markers predicting the decline of health-related quality of life after sepsis. Sepsis and septic shock, affecting up to 50 million people worldwide with mortality reaching 20%, leaves large cohorts of vulnerable patients suffering from long-term complications that affect their quality of life.
EEA bilateral initiatives at the Faculty of Medicine MU: one successfully finishing, another kicking-off

How fast do teeth and bones grow? A new method can quantify this, opening up further possibilities for tissue engineering
How fast teeth grow, what influences their growth dynamics and how dental tissues regenerate. All this can be monitored in detail by a new monitoring method developed by the research group of Assoc. Mgr. Jan Křivánek, Ph.D.
Brno Scientists Get Closer to the Future Treatment of Alzheimer’s Disease
A team of 23 scientists from Brno has come significantly closer to answering the question of how to prevent and treat Alzheimer’s disease, which is the most common cause of dementia and leads to gradual dependence on the daily help of another person. Experts from the Faculties of Science and Medicine at Masaryk University, the International Clinical Research Center and the Masaryk Memorial Cancer Institute believe that the research results will help develop other highly effective therapeutic agents for this 21st century threat to civilisation.
