Our editorial team monitors a broad scope of trends and topics, with special attention devoted to one or more focal areas at any given time. Below, you will see our current main research fields, and a preview of upcoming ones. You are invited to contribute to the full range of topics relating to all of our clusters and industries.
Cultured meat is produced by in-vitro cultivation of animal cells, instead of from slaughtered animals. It is a form of cellular agriculture that uses many of the same tissue engineering techniques traditionally used in regenerative medicine. Learn more in our Supertrends in Cultured Meat report.
Anti-aging is an area of scientific research that aims to help delay, eliminate, or even reverse the aging process. Researchers also hope that anti-aging research can help us to prevent and treat many age-related diseases, thereby expanding both our life and health span.
Green hydrogen refers to the use of renewable energy to power the electrolysis of water, resulting in an almost entirely emission-free process. The benefits and use cases of green hydrogen – such as fuel sources, feedstock, energy storage and re-electrification – are multiple and rapidly becoming realised.
As the world’s computing problems become more complex, today’s devices will increasingly struggle to solve them. Building upon the principles of quantum physics, quantum technology will enable users to address computational problems in areas such as chemistry, finance, defence, manufacturing, and transportation in a more efficient way.
Aquaporins are channel proteins that facilitate the transport of water across cells. Involved in many fundamental functions, it is a new therapeutic approach to many health conditions. Aquaporins are showing promising potential in the treatment of sepsis, one of the main causes of death across the world that desperately needs new effective treatment.
An overview of the range of topics that Supertrends will look to cover over time will follow soon. Please let us know if you would like to suggest new focal topics.
