Four research projects submitted under the Edmond J. Safra 2019 call for proposals have been selected to receive a total of €900,000 in support from the Clinatec endowment fund. The projects were evaluated by the endowment fund’s international scientific committee.
The winners are: the Cooling project (treating epilepsy with cold); the NIR project (stopping the progression of Parkinson’s disease using near-infrared light); the BCI project (a thought-controlled exoskeleton for tetraplegics that will be clinically tested on three new patients in 2019); and the Hypnote project (identifying changes in central and peripheral nervous system activity related to the hypnotic trace state).
