EUROAGE: to improve people’s quality of life and increase healthy life expectancy

The Center for Minimally Invasive Surgery (JUMISC), partner of NANBIOSIS, as the main beneficiary of the Spain-Portugal EUROAGE cross-border cooperation project that promotes active aging in the region, has presented its results and its impact on society, within the Spanish-speaking meeting ‘ Forum of Iberian Stories. 30 years of the INTERREG Spain-Portugal Cross-Border Cooperation Program (POCTEP) ’.

Specifically, the event has been organized by the agencies EFE and LUSA, and took place this past Wednesday at the headquarters of the Spanish agency in Madrid, with the support of the Directorate General for Regional Policy (DGRegio) of the European Commission.

Its objective has been to address the main achievements of the program and the new challenges demanded by the future of both territories. EUROAGE, belonging to the Cooperation Area 4 (Extremadura-Centro-Alentejo), is focused on promoting healthy autonomous life, mainly for the elderly, but also for dependent people, through the promotion of innovative initiatives based on technologies and knowledge developed by the R&D agents.

In turn, the European project promotes active aging through physical, cognitive and socio-emotional activity, with the main objective of improving people’s quality of life and increasing healthy life expectancy, at the same time that will affect the reduction of expenses, in the optimization of resources in public health systems and in the modernization of the business fabric of the sector.

Although the main beneficiary of the European project is the Jesús Usón Minimally Invasive Surgery Center, other institutions also participate, such as the Castelo Branco Polytechnic Institute, the University of Coimbra, the Extremadura Social Cluster, the University of Extremadura and the Polytechnic Institute Give Guardian

EUROAGE includes the development of materials for health literacy, applications for the improvement of physical and cognitive well-being and an integrated system for the promotion of active aging, as well as different social and welfare robots.

New book by NANBIOSIS U14: Basic research procedures in the cell therapy laboratory

Researchers of NANIOSIS Unit 14 at JUMISC have published a new book titled Basic research procedures in the cell therapy laboratory, in which some basic techniques and general principles for adult stem cell research are explained.

Stem cells are cells capable of differentiating into a wide variety of cell types and can be isolated from different tissues such as. They have regenerative and anti-inflammatory properties thanks to the secretion of paracrine factors. Currently, these cells are being widely used in clinical trials for the treatment of different diseases such as Crohn disease, multiple sclerosis, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis or myocardial infarction.
In this book, some basic techniques and general principles for working in a research laboratory in Cellular Therapy are explained in a simplified manner. In the same way, a series of basic knowledge are exposed that must be taken into account for the correct handling of the cells and their environment.
This book is not intended to be a detailed manual of laboratory procedures or a book on cell management for clinical use, but its purpose is to describe part of the protocols developed by the Cell Therapy Unit of NANBIOSIS at the Jesús Usón Minimally Invasive Surgery Center and which have the objective of evaluating the effectiveness and safety of these cells in the preclinical setting.

Book: Basic research procedures in the cell therapy laboratory. Álvarez Pérez, Verónica, García Casado, Javier, Sánchez-Margallo, Francisco.
