Feel free to join us on Friday 7th June 2019 in Boston Convention&Exhibition Center (BOSTON, Massachusetts, USA)
Sumcastec research activities enable intensive & great collaborations through several sort term missions and expertise exchange between ENEA researchers and CREO Medical (Ilan Davis and George Hodgkins joined ENEA’s Lab), BANGOR University (Wesam Ghamal joined ENEA’s Lab), PADOVA University (Mirella Tanori and Arinna Casciati form ENEA joined UniPD’s Lab) and LIMOGES University (Lynn Carr will join ENEA’s Lab in may 2019)
LET’S CONTINUE THIS WAY!!!
Ronald Pethig, Emeritus Professor of Bioelectronics at the University of Edinburgh, and pioneer in the application of dielectrophoresis for investigation on biological cells, joins the SUMCASTEC team as new member of our advisory board of experts. It is a great honor to have him on board! Especially for helping us on future strategic decisions and orientations.
FESB (University of Split) hosted EMF-Med 2018 conference with a large attendance of BIO-EM research community in which researchers from EMF -Med COST Action and SUMCASTEC project were largely involved.
Congratulation to Dr Antonio Sarolic team for the success of this event!
13th July: Workshop on EM field interaction
with biological tissues for cancer and regenerative medicine
Bangor University and CreoMedical are co-organizing a workshop entitled « EM field interaction with biological tissues for cancer and regenerative medicine” to be held on Friday the 13th of July at Bangor University (Pontio, room PL5, 8:30-17:30). This workshop is free and open to attend for students, academics and clinicians at international research and industry institutions.
The event will showcase the most recent advancements in lab-on-chip platforms for cancer medicine, electrosurgery, and tissue engineering. It will also create amazing networking opportunities with the participation of all partners in the EU-funded SUMCASTEC project and co-sponsoring from the Welsh Government’s National Research Network on Advanced Engineering and Materials (http://www.ernw.ac.uk/en/).

It will be in the gorgeous campus of Bangor University, UK, where all the SUMCASTEC project partners will meet for the third consortium meeting on the 11th and 12th of July 2018.
Hoping to see a fruitfull meeting and exciting progress towards novel technological developments.
This year, The International Microwave Symposium was organized in Philadelphia and as last year UNILIM, Bangor, ENEA & CREOMEDICAL was attending to promote their last results achieved in the frame of SUMCASTEC.
With main theme ‘Microwaves, Medicine, Mobility’, Philadelphia edition of IMS conference was the place to be!
The International Microwave Biomedical Conference is an emerging international conference focusing on state-of-the-art research in microwave and RF theory and techniques that bridge the science and engineering gap as applied to biological systems. Co-located with IMS 2018 conference, IMBioC is an ideal forum for sharing new ideas on emerging techniques and applications. (https://imbioc-ieee.org/)
UNILIM, Bangor, ENEA & CREOMEDICAL largely contributed to this event promoting the current SUMCASTEC research work.
Especially, Dr. Caterina Merla from ENEA, as invited speaker shared her experiences on “working at the frontier of engineering and biology: focus on linear and non-linear optical micro spectroscopy to understand electropulsation mechanisms on cells.” with the conference attendees.

14-19th May: SUMCASTEC partners attended the 19th International Symposium
Two SUMCASTEC members presented a poster describing the use of SdFFF for the preparation of defined cell subpopulations for the calibration of biosensors developped by XLIM in the SUMCASTEC project.
The SUMCASTEC project partners went to the beautiful city of Roma, Italy, for the end of first year project meeting. Hosted by ENEA on 19 and 20th December 2017, to present and discuss about all progress and achievements performed since July. Actually, the project is running well, with exciting preliminary results and impressive progress as well on technology & engineering side than on the biology experiments & developments. This exchange time has also allowed preparing the first review of the project that will take place in Brussels in February 2018.
All the SUMCASTEC project partners met for the second time in Franckfurt Oder, Germany, hosted by IHP microelectronic on 11 and 12th July 2017.
During this half year consortium meeting , the main progress and achievements done during the first 6 months of the project were presented and discussed. Actually, the first results shown by each partner are very promising for the up-coming challenging project activities. This exchange time has also allowed to plan in detail and organize the collaborative experimental work for the next period.
The International Microwave Symposium is the largest and the most selective worldwide conference on Microwave devices and their application. This year IMS was held in Honolulu (http://ims2017.org/) and the SUMCASTEC partners attended to present some of the first primarily results achieved in the project consortium to a large audience of microwave engineers and researchers.
In addition during this event, BANGOR & UNILIM organized a workshop dedicated to thermal vs non-thermal effects of electromagnetic waves for biomedical applications, in which especially Creo Medical and IHP Microelectronics partners have introduced their current developments.
The University of Limoges officially launched this research program focusing on cancer stem cells isolation and neutralization. The first consortium meeting took place in the XLIM Institute over 3 days, from February 14th to 16th, welcoming the main representatives of the 6 European partners.
The first day has been dedicated to introduction of each involved team, their know-how and their resources. Following days allowed focusing on the main project topics and research actions with working sessions dedicated to the first achievements and experiences to be done during the next months.
