Horizon Europe – hur ser prioriteringarna ut för avancerade material?I EU:s ramprogram för forskning 2021-2027 ökar forskningssatsningarna. Genom de tre pelarna excellent forskning, globala utmaningar och konkurrenskraft samt innovativa Europa så ska EU vara i framkant av global forskning och innovation.Avancerade material, som t.ex. nanoteknologi, är en möjliggörare för hållbar utveckling i många delar av samhället. Vad betyder det nya ramprogrammet för utvecklingen och användningen av avancerade material? Detta kommer Lars Montelius, GD för International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory (INL), att föreläsa om vid detta webinarium.

Tid: Onsdag 14 april kl. 12.00-12.45

Read the latest position paper of the ETPN about Nanomedicine, published in the Journal of Controlled Release!

The ETPN is very proud and happy to share with you today our latest publication in the Journal of Controlled Release : “Delivering the power of nanomedicine to patients today” (Germain, et al.).

This common position paper in open access is the best way to learn more about the real potential of Nanomedicine to concretely change the life of patients worldwide, how nanomedicine is improving therapeutic outcomes, the reality of its current translation to the clinic with some recent great successes in smarter drug delivery, and the action of the ETPN to create the best possible innovation-friendly ecosystem in Europe to mobilize the full community of Nanomedicine, in order to address better and faster complex pharmacological and medical challenges to tackle.

This course is given for postgraduate students (PhD students) at Lund University, but is also offered for external participants as commissioned education.

The aim of the course is to mediate knowledge of safe manufacturing and handling of engineered nanoparticles and of nanomaterials i.e. materials containing nano-particles, in the perspective of human health and of environment. Aspects such as safety important particle characteristics, exposure- and emission assessment, nano toxicology, precautionary principle, safe-by-design, human-technology interaction, risk assessment, risk management, risk communication, life cycle analysis, legisla-tion, and ethical aspects will be covered.

To promote network building and enable knowledge exchange, the course is open for both PhD students and representatives from industrial and governmental sectors.

Particle properties (size, shape, aspect-ratio, solubility, chemical composition), lung deposition and clearance, emissions, exposure, toxicity, risk management, human-technology interaction, biomarkers, engineering controls and personal protection, risk- and safety communication, food chain transport, life cycle analyses, ethical aspects, and legislation.

Associate senior lecturer Christina Isaxon, course coordinator
Schedule with all lectures TBA

DRA symposium
Nanomedicine is a relatively new field that is currently gaining steam and is expected to contribute to the future of health care and personalized medicine in a significant way. At the University of Copenhagen and other Copenhagen-based universities, biotechnology companies and health related institutes, there is a significant amount of research going on in the nanomedicine area. To make these efforts more visible, allow for collaborative projects, and share the available resources, we are organizing the already third Copenhagen Nanomedicine Day 2019. It will take place on Monday, November 4, 2019.

In addition to local leaders in Nanomedicine, we will also have a few international speakers. They include

Professor Willem Mulder, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York, US Therapeutic targeting of innate immunity with nanobiologics
Professor Stefaan de Smedt, University of Ghent, Belgium Cytosolic delivery of bio-therapeutics: the struggle with biological barriers goes on
Professor Quentin Pankhurst, Director, Institute of Biomedical Engineering, University College London, UK Interstitial dosage limits for nanoscale medicines and agents
Dr. Kathy Saatchi, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada Targeting Rheumatoid Arthritis Using Nanomedicines

The final programme has been made – check it out here.

Poster session
There will also be a poster session at the end of the day, with 3 poster prizes. It is still possible to submit extra abstracts for posters – see the template here:  Template for Abstract

Participation at the Copenhagen Nanomedicine Day 2019 is free to all, thanks to a grant from the Drug Research Academy and the Lundbeck Foundation, and we will provide you with all the food and even beer during the poster session at the end of day. However, you do have to register online – but the excellent talks make it worthwhile. Please submit your 1-page abstract also during the online registration.

Online registration and abstract submission 

The symposium is arranged on behalf of the graduate programme in pharmaceutical sciences, Drug Research Academy, Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, University of Copenhagen, by Professor Urs Häfeli, Department of Pharmacy, and co-funded by the Lundbeck Foundation.

Participation is free of charge and open for attendance by all interested parties.
