Although life is so precious that it can’t be defined in crude financial terms, money does play a key role. The length and quality of people’s lives are often directly proportional to the level of spending on healthcare. That’s why it’s important to invest generously in the development of new, more effective drugs.
Polish engineers and researchers are working on an innovative welding method that will be used to produce machines for the paper-making industry designed to work under high pressures.
Polish geneticists have developed a 100-percent accurate tissue compatibility test that promises to help reduce the number of rejected transplants in patients with blood cancer.
A new generic drug for non-small cell lung cancer is being developed by the Pharmaceutical Research Institute in Warsaw. Once available, the new drug will be put on the market by Polish pharmaceutical company Polfa Production
Several young Polish researchers working on innovations for use in medicine have won scholarships as part of the Doctorates for Mazovia scholarship program, which is run in Warsaw and across the central province of Mazovia.
Scientists from the Gdańsk University of Technology in northern Poland have discovered an enzyme that enables the production of trehalose, an unusual sugar that makes it possible to keep organs intended for transplantation alive for longer.
Researchers from the Polish Academy of Sciences’ Institute of Physical Chemistry in Warsaw have developed a new type of non-toxic, antibacterial nanocomposite coatings that may in the future replace antibiotics in certain applications in medicine. Such coatings can also be used in the textile industry and in the packaging of cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and food products.
A Polish scientist who is an avid scuba diver has built a device that enables people to talk underwater.
Scientists from the Gdańsk University of Technology in northern Poland have found a new and inexpensive method to recover pure silicon from old solar panels. Such silicon can be reused to manufacture new panels, but also for the production of microprocessors and microcomponents or as an additive to improve the quality of steel.
A 5,300-square-meter Information Technology Center with 21 highly specialized laboratories has opened at the Łódź University of Technology in the central city of Łódź.
A system that supports the cognitive development of infants, biodegradable material for the manufacture of plastic containers, and technology designed to increase the safety of children transported in vehicles—these are just three of the eight Polish inventions that won gold medals at the Concours Lépine International Exhibition of Inventions in Paris this year.
