THE Higher Council for Scientific Research (CSIC) will present 40 technologies to detect and treat diseases at the Transfiere Forum in Costa del Sol’s Malaga in Spain
Hosted on February 12 and 13 at the Palace of Fairs and Congresses, the two-day event is renowned across Europe, bringing together multispectral professionals to share knowledge and ideas.
Among the innovations presented was an antibody that detects the percentage of an Alzheimer’s protein which improves magnetic resonance imaging, in addition to a therapeutic tool to treat chronic fibrosis and a test that detects infections caused by a pathogen in pneumonia and cystic fibrosis.
In this year’s edition, the CSIC also showcased 6 technology-based companies developed by researchers at the institution, of which 4 are already fully operational. This included ‘D-Measure’ who offers pioneering solutions in the fight against air pollution in Spain.
Ángela Ribeiro, the vice president of Knowledge Transfer at the CSIC praised the event, stating that the forum “is an important showcase for technologies that arise from the research of excellence developed at the CSIC.”
Transfiere is a unique annual event that boosts innovation between research groups and companies, and contributes to improving competitiveness in the sector at the height of innovation, research and knowledge.
