ICI-THROUGH

We are partners in the H2020-MSCA-RISE project ICI-THROUGH (Intersectoral collaboration for innovation in non-invasive techniques to estimate human brown adipose tissue activity). The project aims at the development of non-invasive practical techniques to accurately estimate the activity of the human brown adipose tissue (BAT). Such techniques can have a major role in the fight against metabolic pandemics such as obesity, and in various industries (e.g. foods, pharmaceuticals).

SIMTECH Lab researchers investigate the transport phenomena in the tissues surrounding BAT and its relation to the thermogenic activity of BAT.
