Research projects about Health monitoring
The SimpleSkin project aims at starting the era of smart clothing. The idea is to incorporate advanced sensing systems into garments. This way it could be possibile to collect vast amounts of information on the physiological parameters of the wearer, such as pulse and breathing rate. This line of search is part of the effort towards the development of new-generation personal monitoring systems.
The goal of the MRG-GRammar project is to develop a new approach for deciphering the “language of DNA”. This approach will make use of interdisciplinary investigation lines to shed light on the regulatory code of the genes. The results of the project may lead to personal therapies based on the patient’s DNA.
