FAPESP and MIT will organize joint Calls for Proposals so that researchers at MIT and researchers associated to public or private Higher Education or Research Institutions in the State of São Paulo can request seed funds for starting a collaboration.
The researchers at MIT will use their MISTI Program while researchers in São Paulo must be Principal Investigators of ongoing research projects funded by FAPESP within the following schemes: Regular Line of Funding, Thematic Projects, Young Investigators, or Research, Innovation and Dissemination Centres (CEPIDs/RIDCs), to submit projects for the exchange of researchers between the State of São Paulo, Brazil and the USA, under the terms and conditions set in the agreement.
Intracranial pressure (ICP) is the hydrostatic pressure of the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) which resides in the brain's ventricular system and surrounds the brain in the subarachnoid space. An increase in ICP is observed in a number of space- filling lesions, such as traumatic brain injury (brain edema), hydrocephalus (excess CSF), brain tumor (mass lesion), or hemorrhagic stroke (increas...
The objective of this joint project, in the scope of the MIT/FAPESP 2015 Call for Proposals, is to investigate a new set of poison-resistant catalysts for hydrogen gas clean-up via the WGS reaction by employing novel materials synthesized at MIT (Chemical Engineering) based on early transition metal carbides and unique reactor and characterization fools developed in Brazil. More specifi...
The main objective is to develop an adaptive strategy based on variable impedance for walking rehabilitation of post-stroke patients. The proposed strategy will be evaluated in two different robotic devices. The first device is the lower limb exoskeleton Exo-Kanguera, designed and built by the proposer in previous projects. The device has three degrees of freedom, acting at hip, knee, a...
