Hot Spot 4 On 6th June 2013, inCASA will be represented by In-JeT at The Danish Welfare Technology Exhibition and Conference. In-JeT will have an exhibition stand demonstrating the project’s technical solution and results. Specifically, the transferability capabilities of inCASA will be demonstrated using the results from the municipality of Skive who is currently testing the inCASA solution. The demonstration will include the touch screen and some of the devices used by chronic elderly patients in Skive and visitors to the stand will have the opportunity to try the devices themselves. In addition to the exhibition, representatives from Skive municipality will, in cooperation with In-JeT, give a presentation at the conference about their experiences with using the inCASA solution.
The annual conference is aimed at Danish municipal and regional healthcare and social care staff working with telemedicine. The Minister for Economic Affairs and the Interior, Margrethe Vestager, and former Health Minister, Arne Rolighed, are among the many prominent speakers at the conference. The programme can be downloaded here (in Danish).

    logo National Institute of Health and Medical Research (INSERM) has a long standing experience in the regulation of tolerability and efficacy of cancer treatments by the circadian timing system, ranging from rodents to patients. It has conceived and implemented chronomodulated treatment delivery to take advantage of the control mechanisms through which the circadian clock modulates normal tissue physiology and tumour growth. The present research work focuses on the control of normal and malignant cellular proliferation by the circadian clock as a determinant of cancer treatment success. The interactions between circadian physiology, molecular clocks and cell cycle and apoptosis processes have emerged as crucial in the further improvement of human diseases. We further address the relevance of circadian clock mechanisms in the efficiency of compensatory cell proliferation. A close cooperation with the 5 academic teams and one SME in this consortium over the past 5 years has led to this STREP proposal for uncovering the mechanisms of the tight interactions between circadian clock, cell division and drug pharmacology as a new paradigm for cancer and many other human diseases.
