In the future the augmented reality will play a key role in medicine and Italy is among the first in Europe to investigate this possibility. At the PERCRO laboratories of the Institute of Communication Technologies, Information and Perception (TeCIP) of the Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna in Pisa, started the new ReMeDi Project – Remote Medical Diagnostician, within the Seventh Framework Program (FP7). We talked about ReMeDi with Carlo Alberto Avizzano , coordinator of the Research Unit of Perceptual Robotics at Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna.

The University of Milano Bicocca is a member of SYRA3, a Cost Action started in 2013 concerning Innovative Methods in Radiotherapy and Radiosurgery, using Synchrotron Radiation in Biomedicine and Molecular sciences. SYRA3 focuses on brain tumors and disorders of the central nervous system, studying the power of synchrotron radiation, in particular using the Grenoble synchrotron.

A Cost Action is an initiative that allows the coordination of nationally-funded science and technology research projects. It aims to reduce the fragmentation in European research and to open the European Research Area to cooperation worldwide.  In this respect, SYRA3 is intrinsically multidisciplinary. The purpose of this project is to create a network of physicists, biologists, doctors, chemists, in order to study the potential of a tool as powerful as the synchrotron.
