New organ-on-chip to accelerate research and personalised medicine
It is only a few centimetres in size and can be held between two fingers, but in the micro-channels carved inside it, it’s hidden a three-dimensional and highly faithful model of a biliary tract cancer called cholangiocarcinoma, complete with its tumour microenvironment.
Nabucco, revolutionary wings for sustainable aviation
Aircraft capable of changing their shape during different flight conditions, addressing two of the most important challenges for the future of sustainable aviation: weight reduction and increased efficiency.
A mathematical model of the heart to revolutionise cardiac research
A mathematical and computational model of the human heart has been developed at Politecnico di Milano and designed for studying coronary artery disease.
Another victory for the PoliMOVE car from Politecnico di Milano
On 18 June, for the fourth time in a row, the PoliMOVE team from Politecnico di Milano won the latest edition of the Indy Autonomous Challenge (IAC), the autonomous car race which this time was held at home, at Autodromo di Monza in the context of MiMo, Milano Monza Open-Air Motor Show.
Politecnico di Milano starts testing autonomous cars on public roads
A milestone in the research and testing of autonomous vehicles on public roads. The project '1000 Miglia Autonomous Drive', (1000-MAD) stars the self-driving car fitted out by the Politecnico di Milano, presented on 11 June 2023 in the 1000 Miglia Village in Brescia, which will be tested along the route of the historic car race.

192.2 mph/309.3 kph. Never before has a car driven by artificial intelligence alone been this fast.
Quantum artificial intelligence a step closer towards reality
Artificial intelligence is used in various applications, such as speech interpretation, image recognition and medical diagnostics. It has also been shown that quantum technology can be employed to achieve a computing power greater than that of the major supercomputers.
3D printed neural tissues: Politecnico di Milano
To use 3D-printed tissues to explore the causes of neural diseases: this is the aim of the project funded by Fondazione Cariplo as part of the call for projects “Biomedical research conducted by young researchers 2021”. It converges the efforts of researchers from Politecnico di Milano and Humanitas University.
