COORDINATOR - Fundeni Clinical Institute (ICF)

Internal Medicine and Nephrology Center of Fundeni Institute has a long tradition in the field of nephrology, since the early 60s. So far, the collective Internal Medicine and Nephrology Center Fundeni was involved in over 50 international multicentre studies and was coordinator or partner in 20 national research projects. Major activities in the field of nephrology include cardiovascular disease, kidney damage, preventing progression to chronic renal failure, the kidney as a target organ in immunological diseases, treatment therapies and extracorporeal renal transplantation. The coordinator of the project is involved in project management, development and research methodology of the study protocol, database construction and web site recruiting and assessing patients. It will also help to develop and test score ArterioTest will hold a workshop for technology transfer and ensure dissemination of project results, and financial reports and scientific project.

PARTNER 1 – National Institute of Research and Development in Pathology Domain and Biomedical Sciences "Victor Babeș" (INCDVB)

The work of the National Institute for Research and Development in Pathology and Biomedical Sciences "Victor Babes" integrated research focuses on human pathology in order to develop innovative diagnostic tools and personalized treatment strategies on tissue biology research. Results of basic research in cellular and molecular medicine are applied in our Diagnostic Center and then partner clinics. The Institute has participated in several international projects, bilateral cooperation with Greece, Italy, France, China, projects financed by EU Structural Funds 2007-2013, several research groups joined international research networks, such as costs and EuroGentTest. Partner 1 is involved in this project through the analysis of biomarkers that are carried out in laboratory biochemistry, proteomics technology available in these laboratories of excellence and team expertise allowing complex studies, interdisciplinary.

PARTNER 2 - Institute for Cardiovascular Emergencies "Prof. Dr. CC Iliescu" (IUBCV)

Department of Cardiologic Emergency of Institute of Cardiovascular Diseases "Prof. Dr. CC Iliescu" (IUBCV) has been involved in major international multicenter studies and was coordinator or partner in several national research projects. Partner 2 is involved in protocol development work and cardiac and vascular ultrasound assessments, data collection, statistical analysis, the formulation of the final results and conclusions of the project. The research team has extensive experience in conducting studies in the field of cardiac and vascular ultrasound, publishing a number of articles in this area.

PARTNER 3 - SC Institute for Computers SA ( ITC)

The main interest of this institution are: Integrated ITCNet communication, Internet access, virtual private networks, Web Design, Web Hosting, international voice services, GIS solutions based on solutions developed by ITC or ESRI software products, software development to customer requirements.
