  • [01] Labour Minister: No further measures needed for Social Insurance Fund

    Labour and Social Insurance Minister Zeta Emilianidou has said that the real reserve of the Social Insurance Fund and the expected revenue to cover expenses will last until 2060 and therefore no further measures are needed.

    Emilianidou said that the study on the basis of which the Social Insurance Fund is viable until 2060 was evaluated on September 25 by the Ageing Working Group and the Economic Policy Committee of the EU and its results were adopted with no objections.

    Emilianidou noted in a written statement that the study was completed on the basis of the provisions and the deadlines of the Memorandum with the Troika.

    [02] Significant research of University of Cyprus in embryology

    Significant research results in the field of embryology with potential applications in treating cancer, were published by a research team of the University of Cyprus in the scientific journal "Development".

    According to a press release by the University of Cyprus' Department of Biological Sciences, the research team under Assistant Professor Dr Paris Skourides, succeeded in achieving the synthesis of protein inhibitor of Focal Adhesion Kinase-(FAK).

    The research, funded by the Research Promotion Foundation, found that FAK is involved in cases of congenital fetal anomalies or death, given that 21% of fetal death in humans are caused by developmental abnormalities incompatible with life.

    The press release notes that a new research is underway which aims to investigate the possible use of the inhibitor for the suppression of cancer.
