TToP: A Replica of Human Tissue to Develop New Drugs

A new spin-off company of the Department of Electronics, Information and Bioengineering of the Politecnico di Milano was founded from the TToP – True Tissue on Platform project. Born in 2018 as a master's thesis project in Biomedical Engineering, TToP is a versatile and modular microphysiological platform capable of replicating in vitro the complex physio-pathological conditions of human tissues. This technology makes the process of developing and testing new drugs and treatments more effective and less expensive, while minimizing the use of animal models.

Streaming Machine Learning: Motus.ml Wins the 2050 Challenge

Alessio Bernardo and Giacomo Ziffer, PhD candidates in Information Technology and members of Prof. Emanuele Della Valle’s research group from the Department of Electronics, Information and Bioengineering of the Politecnico di Milano, together with Veronika Merlin, alumna from the Department of Design of the Politecnico di Milano, won the 2050 Challenge with the motus.ml project. The prize consists of six months of incubation at the Piacenza UrbanHub and 3,000 euros to support the start-up launch.

Artificial Intelligence and Diagnostic Imaging

Ikonisys, a company specializing in the early and accurate detection of cancer, and the Department of Electronics, Information and Bioengineering of the Politecnico di Milano signed a research contract to initiate a project to bear on the challenging problem of identifying specific cells in complex tissues through designing, training and deployment of a deep learning model able to detect them.
