New research announced today (11 May 2021), European Stroke Awareness Day will develop micro-robots to unblock blood vessels and fight stroke from within. 

 A new ground-breaking project, ANGIE, funded by the EU, aims to develop nano-surgeons that will enter the body to treat blood clots. 

 The ANGIE project will develop a radical, new technology for localised, targeted drug delivery based on steerable wireless nanodevices, capable of navigating the body vascular system to deliver drugs where no other instrument can go. ANGIE will offer health professionals vastly improved intervention capacity to tackle multiple chronic diseases and enable them to deliver drugs precisely where needed, with minimal side effects.
