Communication4Care

In a nutshell: Communication4Care (Com4Care) is a cloud-based communication platform to facilitate GDPR conform interoperability and link of relevant (sensor) data with structured patient-related information. No data files need to be exchanged and the platform provides a secure data storage and (real time or asynchronous) communication channel. Thus, improved standardized data acquisition, process monitoring, and data interpretation are possible. The patient can collect and report individual findings and outcomes (PROMs) and 'distribution of information' or sending of data files (electronic...

ARVIR

Arspectra's Augmented Reality glasses are modified in order to detect fever - the primary symptom of Covid19 infection - on distance. It enables the healthcare personnel organizing the overload of potential patients while staying at safe distances. It allows police forces, or airport security personnel to immediately detect a case of fever at airport, border, station, and public controls. These professionals are at the frontline fighting the spread of the epidemics, yet represent 30 % of the overall people getting infected. Providing detection on safe distance ARVIR reduces their ris...

Multi-omics evaluation of microbial co-infection as marker of COVID-19 severity -(CO-INFECTOMICS)

The main goal of this project is to understand if SARS-CoV2 co-infections are a predictive marker of disease severity in the Luxembourgish population. To achieve this, the study will compare the respiratory and stool samples of mild and severe SARS-CoV2 positive patients. Using metagenomics and metatranscriptomics, microbial profiles of the respiratory and intestinal tracts will be investigated, with a specific attention for co-infections. Moreover, individual microbial profiles will be correlated to the health parameters and immune response. We hope that the CO-INFECTOMICS project will ena...

Project SugarBuddy

We propose the creation of an automated real time monitoring service, for people with diabetes, that reacts in case of emergency and alerts the designated medical or social care teams via sms/e-mail allowing them to contact directly the patients via phone or video conference. As result of the covid-19 confinement measures and being one of the groups at risk, people suffering from diabetes (especially the elderly and people living alone) might become over isolated and prone to emergency situations due to the lack of support.

Peptide / protein /single-cell map of the renin-angiotensin system in Covid-19

Receptors for entry of SARS-CoV-2 into lung pneumocytes belong to the renin-angiotensin system and disease that are associated to a dysregulation of the same system (e.g.: diabetes, hypertension, and cardiovascular diseases) are thought to be associated with a bad Covid-19 prognosis. At the same time these receptor are also expressed on cells of the immune system and the immune system is involved in diseases associated to RAS dysregulation. Our project wish to use an integrated mass spectrometry / flow cytometry approach to build a map of the RAS at the peptide and protein level together w...

Docking and binding affinity prediction for candidate small molecule inhibitors of COVID-19 prote...

Currently no vaccine or sufficiently validated pharmacological treatment is available for COVID-19. Drug-based strategies to reduce the viral load in patients with severe forms of COVID-19 include the repurposing of existing small molecule compounds that inhibit the activity of key viral proteins, or human proteins involved in mediating the viral entry or release from the host cell. However, so far, the identified small molecule inhibitors for SARS-CoV-2 target proteins studied in-vitro have significant limitations in terms of their binding affinity to the target, their bioavailability in t...

Responsible AI for Anonymity Preserving Self Evaluation, Reporting and Support System

COVID-19 emergence is affecting personal and communities lives, and also requests for actions to address and reduce such impacts currently and in the future. Complex measures to protect vulnerable individuals, and to support them and law enforcement for the benefit of communities play critical roles in public well-being. Information technologies therefore become critical resources in keeping the balance between surveillance and monitoring while preserving privacy and providing support. This project proposal addresses the need to develop and demonstrate responsible and beneficial collection ...

Coronajhemp: A COVID-19 Superhero For Luxembourg

The goal of this project is to enable quick access to trustworthy information and provide the Luxembourgish population with virtual assistance on topics related to COVID-19, towards the use of a chatbot. Moreover, a chatbot will help reduce the spread of wrong information among the population and relieve the existing governmental hotline for elder people. Users will be able to ask simple questions such as 'What are the symptoms of COVID-19?' or more subtle concerns like 'Where can I get tested?'. The chatbot could also be used to perform a quick diagnosis and assist the user with requesting...
