Browsing all the available projects from the past years is becoming a big task. A categorized list of the projects will hopefully provide a better overview making this task easier. This is just a start-up, so please add projects and categories to complete this list.

Contents

Health & Medicine

  • A synthetic biology approach against HIV - Ljubljana 2007
  • Cost-effective red blood cell substitute constructed from engineered E. coli bacteria - Berkley UC 2007
  • Targeting a specific subset of cells with a virus, based on (m?)RNA or protein expression profiles - Caltech 2007
  • Repairing damaged heart cells by integrating healthy ES-cell-like cells that are autonomously differentiated towards cardiomyocites into the heart - Bay Area RSI 2007
  • Cancer specific RNAi mediated cell destruction - Princeton 2007
  • Phage that select against bacterial resistance (Project 1 of 2) - Rice 2007
  • Designing a biological system to sense environmental glucose concentration and decrease the level of glucose by releasing insulin - Taipei 2007
  • Using bacteria to bind to targeted cells in a body, and under influence of enough bacteria (quorum sensing) evoke a desired response (like: kill the bad cell) - Harvard 2007
  • Using an AHL sensor (molecule secreted by biofilm microorganisms) and GFP reporter to detect biofilm formation in catheters. Imperial College London 2007
