B-SMART on the Homestretch: New Video Clip Highlights Project’s Pathway to Success
Over the past 5.5 years, the partners of the EU-funded research project B-SMART have been on a journey to explore and establish new gateways to reach the brain in the hopes of better addressing brain-related illnesses, such as Alzheimer’s disease. At the end of June, the B-SMART project will come to an end.
A just-released interview clip featuring B-SMART coordinator Professor Dr Raymond Schiffelers (UMCU) and behind-the-scenes footage from all project partners illustrates how far B-SMART has come in their collaborative endeavour.
The project’s results can lead to a new kind of treatment that could promise a cure to more than 7 million people with Alzheimer’s disease in Europe alone. Additionally, the new generation of RNA nanocarriers developed within B-SMART offers other researchers an enabling technology for various brain-related conditions beyond Alzheimer’s.
