This Guideline is intended to be used for the following purposes:
Partners: Gedeon Richter, University of Debrecen, UD-Genomed, Hungarian Clinical Neurogenetic Society
The first aim of the project is to develop a state-of-the-art bioinformatics tool to predict and optimize the expression profile and the behavioural pattern of the target melanoma cells effecting RNA-based vectors.
The second aim is to determine optimized RNA-based vectors for melanoma vaccination using the bioinformatic tool developed. Immunomodulation and direct targeting of signaling pathways in malignant melanoma are promising directions in melanoma therapy research.
Preliminary results are convincing: upon administration of the compound, a longer survival period and a better progression rate was observed in mice. After modifications identified and carried out through the collaborative work, enhanced efficiency is hoped to be attained. Later on a clinical trial might be initiated.
Partner: Molecular Biophysics Institute at the CNRS campus of Orléans
Moorfields Eye Hospital (London, England) – one of the most prestigious eye clinic in the world – will be involved in the research and the clinical validation.
Partners: University of Debrecen and 3T Research

MyHealthAvatar will be built on the latest ICT technology with an aim of engaging public interest to achieve its targeted outcomes. Overall, it will contribute to individualized disease prediction and prevention and support healthy lifestyles and independent living. The initiative of designing a personal avatar can potentially change the way we think, communicate and search for information. Meanwhile, the acceptance of the avatars by the public will open opportunities for many industrial sectors.
Partners: University of Bedfordshire UK, Foundation for Research and Technology – Hellas GR, Universitaet des Saarlandes DE, Institute of Communication and Computer Systems GR, Leibnitz Universitaet Hannover DE, AnSmart Ltd UK
