Quotes

"The aspect of my architecture that I am interested in is the discussion with the local tradition. I pose a question to myself what those old architectural systems may give us. Where is the substance of those constructions? How can they be transformed for the new kinds use to meet the requirements of the present time? It is always the matter of discussion and a new development. I believe that it is the core of tradition of the entire village."
"The prize money directly provides the essential financial support for our laboratory work, thereby enabling us to continue our fundamental and important research on debilitating chronic bladder diseases" Gamper said
"A mini-engine is set in motion when it receives a signal from a sensor. This takes power, is prone to failure and expensive." Stark said the goal of his research group is to replace complicated control systems with clever materials
...Ayad Abdulahad, director of the Astellas European Foundation and director of medical affairs and health economics at Astellas Pharma Europe, said: "We received 35 applications from all over Europe. The Foundation wishes to thank all those who have submitted research proposals. The standard of entries was very high and covered a wide range of topics in functional urology but also the uro-gynaecology. The project, led by Dr. Gamper and the research team, has the potential to test a hypothesis that could improve early diagnosis and provide more targeted treatment for patients with SVH and syndrome painful bladder interstitial cystitis.
