European Commission’s drive to launch a medical device created in the Hospital and the Germans Trias i Pujol Research Institute to improve the diagnosis and prognosis of the acute ischaemic stroke
The care and treatment provided to people who suffer an ischemic stroke can improve thanks to a technology developed in Catalonia. This is the purpose of Time is Brain (TiB), a start-up that arose from a scientific project carried out by the Hospital and the Germans Trias i Pujol Research Institute (IGTP), which has just received an investment by the European Union of almost 6 million euros in order for the hospitals to count on a pioneering device to manage acute ischaemic stroke.
The European Commission has granted two projects to the IGTP within the HORIZON programme, which add up to a total of 1,670,346 euros in funding and deal with the preclinical development of immunotherapies.
The Germans Trias i Pujol Research Institute (IGTP) and the Germans Trias Hospital participate in the HEAL project, which is funded through the Erasmus+ programme. HEAL is an ambitious project aimed at reformulating the way clinical internships currently take place in hospitals.
- Timely diagnosis is crucial to detect chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), an underdiagnosed entity in 75% of cases
- Breaz is developing a fast and precise testing device to improve the diagnosis and prognosis of this respiratory disease
The Germans Trias i Pujol Research Institute (IGTP) and the Germans Trias Hospital have taken part for the first time in the Erasmus+ Programme with an ambitious project aimed at digitalizing student stays at the centre.
The IGTP spin-off has developed a medical device to improve the diagnosis of acute ischaemic stroke. This is the second investment made within the BStartup Health Call for which 121 start-ups applied.
The device will identify possible obstructions in stents quickly and non-invasively. Nimble is a spin-off company of the Germans Trias i Pujol Research Institute (IGTP), the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) and the University of Barcelona (UB).
Biointaxis launches a 0.88M euro crowdfunding campaign to finance a curative therapy for Friedreich's Ataxia
Biointaxis is a spin-off of the IGTP led by Dr. Antoni Matilla-Dueñas. To date, the research has been financed with the support of patient associations, the founders themselves, La Caixa Foundation, the CDTI and the Ministry of Science and Innovation. The project, that received the European seal of excellence in 2020, is in the final phase of gene therapy after years of research progress and it is the only candidate with potential to cure the disease at the moment. This round aims to overcome the critical inflexion point - the demonstration of the biodistribution and safety of the therapy in non-human primates. The value of the company will increase considerably when this data is available in less than 1 year; the financing campaign is being carried out through the equity crowdfunding platform of Capital Cell.
