Dear Member, welcome to PEGS BOSTON 2018
April 30 – May 4
Location: Seaport World Trade Center, Boston MA


Nanotechnology in medicine, or nanomedicine, is a relatively new field. The use of nanoparticles to diagnose and treat diseases as well as future potential to make repairs at the cellular level has spawned great interest among the pharma and biopharma industries.

CHI’s inaugural Nanotechnology in Medicine conference seeks to bring together the interdisciplinary researchers from chemistry, engineering, biology and medicine together to explore the use of nanomaterials including nanoparticles, nanodevices, nanorobots, that will revolutionize drug delivery, diagnostics and therapeutics applications.

Nanotechnology’s impact on society is going to be similar to the invention of electricity.

“Nanotechnology: The New Economy” conference will gather highly skilled professionals in the area. Scientists, politicians, economists will discuss the various applications of the technology, the consequente reshaping of the economic and social systems and how much it will change our daily life.

INL SUMMIT 2017 will take place on October 19th-20th. This is a one-of-a-kind event in the Iberian territory. It will be a great opportunity to discuss Nanotechnology amongst peers, to know more about this science, to network or to enrich your overall knowledge.

Pilot plant for testing of nanopharmaceuticals

Dear Member,

Spinverse is working on an EU funded project called Nanopilot, which is coordinated by Cidetec in Spain. The aim of the project is to set up a pilot plant for the cost-efficient production of polymer-based nanopharmaceuticals in small GMP batches, used e.g. for early clinical trials (download PDF HERE).

During the project, siRNA-based nanopharmaceuticals, HIV nanovaccine and hyaluronan-based spheres for drug delivery will be produced at the pilot plant. At the end of the project (around 2017-2018) the aim is to expand the pilot plant offering also to other users and other kinds of (polymeric) nanopharmaceuticals. Spinverse role in the project is to gather information and to develop the services and assess the business potential of the project, and therefore we need to reach out to potential collaborators in order to hear their needs and opinions.

More about us: Spinverse is a Finnish consultant company within open innovation. The company has been founded 2004 and today it employs 50 people. We help companies and universities to apply for public funding, to find the right partners, and to coordinate the projects.
