CIRCLE: Coordinating European Research on Molecular Communications

The area of Molecular Communications seeks to leverage biological phenomenon at the molecular level such as inter cell communication, usage of immune system, bacteria DNA transfer, neuronal signaling and calcium signaling to build a communications infrastructure for nano-scale devices that can be deployed and coordinate sophisticated operations within biological systems such as the human body. Within this highly multidisciplinary area, disparate islands of research are emerging with little coordination. The CIRCLE project, which has been funded by the European Commission, aims to harmonize these islands of research in Molecular Communications across Europe by providing a structured research agenda to accelerate convergence and advance breakthrough research within the area.
