FP7-Funded Project Tackles Liver Disease

The European Commission has published an article about its THEBERA project to improve the capacity of Egypt’s Theodor Bilharz Research Institute to tackle liver disease in Egypt and Europe. “THEBERA organised study visits to top European research centres and opportunities to participate in and contribute to relevant liver research events to increase capacities as well as promote topics of mutual interest,” according to the Horizon 2020 website. “If you are doing research without making the connection to the industry to exploit your research results and offer a product to the community, you will not be able to sustain your activities,” THEBARA’s project coordinator, Sanaa Botros, is quoted as saying. The initiative was launched in November 2011 and concluded in April 2014. [Image credit: Flickr, AJ Gazmen]
