Project code 664782 (ERC-PoC)
The ERC Proof of Concept Grant VANGUARD, acronym for Versatile optomechanicanical graphene device for bio-tissue engineering aims at the realization of a novel bio-inspired laser-driven bio-templating approach for antibacterial surfaces and for tissue engineering.
The project lasts 18 months, ends in September 2016 and is funded by 150keuros
In a paper in arXiv Giulia Marcucci and Claudio Conti report on the mathematical structures of the so-called Time Asymmetric Quantum Mechanics. This theory predicts that time-travel is not possible and explain evidences as the Big Bang or the decay of unstable particles. The authors argue that possible shaping of the initial state of a system may furnish a road to validate these fascinating developments in quantum mechanics. The work also follows the experimental evidence of the quantization of the decays rates.

The results of the team of the Vanguard project presented at at the 60th annual meeting of the Biophysical Society, in Los Angeles appeared in Physics World
