Micro/nano robotics for single cancer cells (MNR4SCell)
Funding: H2020 RISE
Duration: Jan 2017 – Jan 2021
Team: Richard Leach, Rong Su
The project focuses on the staff exchange between the partners of EU and China, and the share of knowledge and ideas, and further the development of the leading-edge technologies for the design, modelling, and control of micro/nano robotics for the applications in single cancer cell measurement, characterisation, manipulation, and surgery. The ultimate goal of MNR4SCell is to establish long-term research collaboration between Europe and China in the challenging field of micro/nano robotics for single cancer cells for the characterisation, diagnosis and targeted therapy. The synergistic approach established by MNR4SCell will keep the consortium’s leading position in the world for potential major scientific and technological breakthroughs in micro/nano robotics and biomedical applications.
MMT has 54 months of secondments to and from China, specifically the Harbin Institute of Technology, Changchun University of Science and Technology and Tianjin University.
