STREAMLINE at ExcellMater Conference 2024

ExcellMater conference is the final event organized within the Horizon 2020 project: Twinning to excel materials engineering for medical devices – ExcellMater (GA 952033) targeting breakthroughs in new medical devices, biomaterials scientific advances, translation from fundamental research to clinical application, and commercial opportunities for using innovative biomaterials. It also aims to present that coordinators of Twinning projects present their projects and experiences in project management and administration. This conference also provides plenty of opportunities for networking and exchange of ideas among researchers in different scientific fields as well as interactions with clinicians, SMEs and industry representatives.

Our colleges presented STREAMLINE project at ExcellMater Conference 2024: Innovative Biomaterials for Novel Medical Devices, held in Belgrade, April 10-12, 2024. This was a good opportunity to increase the visibility of the STREAMLINE Project outputs among academic public.

FINALNA SLIKA

Overview of the staff exchanges at Cardiff University and CERTH

Welcome back Aleksandra Medić and Jelena Pejić! After three months, members of the STREAMLINE team returned to Belgrade from their staff exchange at the Cardiff University, United Kingdom, and CERTH, Greece. After completion of staff exchange in CERTH, Thessaloniki, Greece, Jelena acquired knowledge in assessing metabolic changes and testing drug responsiveness of neurons and astrocytes generated from patient iPSCs. She gained expertise in high-throughput cell-based assay for in vitro drug testing. Second staff exchange in Cardiff University, United Kingdom was dedicated to mastering generation of brain organoids from patient iPSCs. During her stay, Aleksandra gain valuable insights into the creation of organoids and learned how to analyze samples from 60 days old organoids. Their future goal is to improve research profile of IMGGE in the realm of neurodevelopmental disorders.

Realizacija XVI edicije manifestacije UniStem Day

Šesnaesta edicija UniStem dana (Dana matične ćelije) održana je 22. marta 2024. Ovo je najveća međunarodna manifestacija posvećena popularizaciji matičnih ćelija, namenjena prvenstveno srednjoškolcima.
U realizaciji ovogodišnje manifestacije učestvovalo je 13 država sa dva kontinenta (Evropa I Australija), 97 univerzitetskih centara i preko 30 000 đaka širom sveta.
I ove godine UniStem Day u Beogradu održan je pod okriljem Univerziteta u Beogradu, u organizaciji Instituta za molekularnu genetiku i genetičko inženjerstvo, uz pomoć i podršku STREAMLINE projekta i Bio Save Fondacije. U manifestaciji je učestvovalo oko 90 učenika iz ukupno 12 srednjih škola.
Manifestaciju je zvanično otvorio prof. dr Ratko Ristić, prorektor za međunarodnu saradnju, Univerziteta u Beogradu. Tokom prepodnevnog dela programa, održanog u Svečanoj Sali Rektorata, Univerziteta u Beogradu, đaci su imali priliku da se, kroz naučnopopularna predavanja i kratkometražne dokumentarne filmove, upoznavaju sa značajem matičnih ćelia i revolucionarnim otkrićima koja pomeraju granice savremene medicine. Ovom prilikom, dr Mina Perić, predstavila je STREAMLINE projekat kroz predavanje o organoidima mozga kao model sistemu za proučavanje neurorazvojnih poremećaja. Srednjoškolci su sa velikom pažnjom pratili predavanja i vrlo aktivno učestvovali u diskusiji. 
Deo đaka je imao priliku da učestvuje i u poslepodnevnom delu programa organizovanom u prostorijama Instituta za molekularnu genetiku i genetičko inženjerstvo i na Institutu za medicinska istraživanja. U okviru ovih aktivnosti, đaci su imali priliku i da se upoznaju sa Centrom za sekvenciranje genoma i bioinformatiku, takođe, srednjoškolcima je demonstriran rad sa ćelijskim kulturama i zebra ribicama kao model sistemima za istraživanja.
Zahvaljujemo se svim učesnicima i najavljujemo XVII ediciju manifestacije UniStem Day za 14. mart 2025. godine!

STREAMLINE visiting Ljubovija

On Friday, March 15, Ivana Simeunović visited the High school in Ljubovija within the program Researchers Night, where she presented the STREAMLINE project, funded by the EU. This was the great opportunity for high school students to get introduced with the latest methods in modeling of neurodevelopmental disorders.

Brain Awareness Week—March 11-17 “Shake your brain”

Brain Awareness Week (BAW) is the worldwide manifestation that celebrate brain science every March. Originating in 1996, BAW was initiated by the Dana Foundation, a nonprofit organization. BAW aims to increase public interest in the wonders of the brain.

5 Interesting facts about your brain:

  •  Information in the brain may move at a speed of up to 268 mph.
  • Brain activity can power a small light bulb.
  • A sand-sized fragment of brain tissue has one billion synapses and one hundred thousand neurons.
  • The brain can’t feel pain.
  • The idea that people only employ 10% of their brains is untrue.

Our STREAMLINE Team Member dr Mina Perić held a lecture entitled “Brain organoids as a model system for study of neurodevelopmental disorders” at the INSTITUTE OF MOLECULAR GENETICS AND GENETIC ENGINEERING University of Belgrade who hosted BAW manifestation this year. High School students from 4th lyceum of Larissa, Larissa, Greece and from Fifth Belgrade Gymnasium and Eight Belgrade Gymnasium, Belgrade, Serbia. Students had the great opportunity to boost their brains and get introduced to the latest methods in modeling neurodevelopmental disorders. This was also a wonderful time for students to exchange their cultures, foster meaningful connections, and excel academically.

We spend a great day together. We hope that you will participate with us in celebration of Brain Awareness Week next year.

STREAMLINE project activities at Cardiff University

PhD student Aleksandra Medić, a STREAMLINE team member, is currently on staff exchange at the Neuroscience and Mental Health Innovation Institute, University of Cardiff, Cardiff, UK. She is learning how to generate cortical organoids from induced pluripotent stem cells derived from patients with 22q11.2 microdeletion. In the next three months, she will also be trained how to analyze the samples from 60-days-old organoids. This will allow us to better understand the pathogenesis of neurodevelopmental disorders caused by 22q11.2 microdeletion.

Cryosectioning of 60 days old organoids on cryostat, device that maintains low temperature of -20°C and cuts frozen samples of organoids in 12µm thin sections. Sections are than mounted on glass slides and are prepared for immunofluorescent staining.

UNISTEM DAY 2024 – POZIV NA UČEŠĆE

Dragi srednjoškolci,

Imamo veliku čast i zadovoljstvo da vas pozovemo na već tradicionalnu manifestaciju pod nazivom “UniStem Day” (“Dan matične ćelije”), koja će biti održana u PETAK 22. marta 2024. godine u Beogradu. 

Ovo je XVI edicija najveće međunarodne manifestacije posvećene popularizaciji matičnih ćelija koja se održava simultano na brojnim univerzitetskim centrima širom Evrope. Pokretač i koordinator manifestacije je UniStem centar za istraživanje matičnih ćelija Univerziteta u Milanu. Imajući u vidu značaj matičnih ćelija, pre svega u sferi regenerativne medicine, biologija matične ćelije je trenutno jedna od najaktuelnijih i najdinamičnijih oblasti istraživanja u svetu, koja sve više dobija na značaju i kod nas. Događaj ima za cilj da približi svet matičnih ćelija domaćoj javnosti i pruži priliku za upoznavanje sa revolucionarnim otkrićima koja pomeraju granice savremene medicine. Takođe, srednjoškolci dobijaju priliku da steknu nova saznanja o naučnoistraživačkom radu kod nas kroz direknu intereakciju sa istraživačima i posete laboratorijama.

U Beogradu će UniStem Day biti održan po peti put, pod okriljem Univerziteta u Beogradu u organizaciji Instituta za molekularnu genetiku i genetičko inženjerstvo (IMGGI) uz pomoć i podršku STREAMLINE projekta i BioSave fondacije

Manifestacija je namenjena prvenstveno starijim srednjoškolcima (učenicima III i IV razreda srednjih škola i gimnazija), učešće je besplatno i uključuje prepodnevne i poslepodnevne aktivnosti. Detaljan program manifestacije možete naći na linku:
