@SiriusXT_Ltd and @ucddublin researchers have been awarded a total of €2.35m in EU funding for a disruptive photonics technology project to examine the disease pathways of viruses.…


@techireland @Entirl @MacAnRua @UCD_physics
The aim of #ProjectCoCID, led by @SiriusXT_Ltd, is to provide insights into the cellular origins of viral diseases including; hepatitis C, hepatitis E, herpesvirus and SARS-CoV-2, and to aid in the development of novel therapeutics using the company’s novel soft x-ray microscope.
@MacAnRua, said, “This project award .... allows @SiriusXT_Ltd to collaborate closely with European leaders in virology research to demonstrate the benefits of soft x-ray microscopy in progressing their understanding of pathogen infection pathways.” #ProjectCoCID
Stephen O’Reilly, @Entirl, said, “#ProjectCoCID is a great win for Ireland and continues the excellent performance of Irish researchers and innovators who punch well above their weight when it comes to #photonics in Horizon 2020.."

@NerdyNic said, "We will investigate the mechanisms by which hepatitis E virus, an emerging infectious disease..... infects cells from different species."

"The ultimate aim is to explore new treatment options for this important viral infection.”

#ProjectCoCID @ucdvetmed
@WaterfordMafia said, "The addition of this innovative imaging modality to the existing suite of instruments in the core imaging facility is very welcome."

@UCD_Conway #ProjectCoCID
@WaterfordMafia added, ' provides researchers internationally with unique insights to disease pathways, particularly in relation to virus-host interactions......' @UCD_Conway #ProjectCoCID
