Final Conference Title EN



On March 31st 2016, GlowBrain project officially ended. During three and a half years, how long Glowbrain project lasted, a lot has been accomplished.

The main result of the GlowBrain is establishing the most modern equipment for imaging the brain of living mice , preclinical scanner for optical imaging Perkin Elmer IVIS Spectrum and device for magnetic resonance force field 7 Tesla Bruker BioSpec 70/20 USR , which are located in the new lab renewed by own resources in Laboratory for regenerative neuroscience -GlowLab.

In the project, along with researchers from Croatia participated famous scientists from seven countries from the European Union ( Austria, Czech Republic , Italy, Hungary , Germany, Portugal and Sweden ).

In addition to advancing scientific research at the University of Zagreb School of Medicine, one of the main tasks of the project was the training of our scientists in the specific experimental methods, which they gained in the study visits in partner institutions . Through this project, for nearly three years, 11 scientists and experts , of which 4 research scientists have been employed.

Although the project officially ended GlowBrain continues to operate through generated GlowBrain platform. GlowBrain team would like to thank everyone who has followed us and supported us in our work all this time.

About the project
"Glowbrain" or "Combining Stem Cells and Biomaterials for Brain Repair - Unlocking the Potential of the Existing Brain Research through Innovative In Vivo Molecular Imaging"

The aim of this three-year project is the introduction of cutting-edge technology that will enable Croatian scientists to research stem cell and to track them during the brain damage repair of our experimental model - mouse. Apart from Croatian researchers, the project includes renowned scientists from seven countries of the European Union (Austria, Czech Republic, Italy, Hungary, Germany, Portugal and Sweden) whose knowledge in the field of stem cells, biomaterials and mouse brain imaging will help us to successfully participate in leading researches in this area. The main objectives of the project are modernization, innovation and education, and informing the general public about the importance of new approaches in brain diseases treatments.
