The UAB-CIE project organises the first Nanomedicine Workshop on 5 June to present the strategic opportunities existing in this field and to promote research and innovation.
Under the framework of the Campus of International Excellence, the UAB-CIE project organises the first Nanomedicine Workshop. The workshop will be held on 5 June at the convention centre of the Hotel Campus of Bellaterra.
The objective of the activity, which will begin at 10 am and end at 6 pm, is to present the strategic opportunities existing in this field and to promote research and innovation among researchers of the various UAB-CIE member institutes.
The workshop will be fully in English with short sessions lasting 30 to 45 minutes. Each session will include a guest speaker, expert in Nanomedicine, who will share their experiences and current situation in this field of research, focusing on the strategies and opportunities available, starting with European contexts and working down to the situation in Catalonia. Participants also will be evaluating the potentials of UAB-CIE aggregations in this field of research and identifying synergies among the different groups with the aim of developing cross-curricular projects which include research and knowledge transfer processes.
Guest speakers will include Dr Patrick Boisseau, representative of the European Technology Platform on Nanomedicine, Dr Rogerio Gaspar, researcher at the Faculty of Pharmacy of the University of Lisbon and at the iMed.UL research centre, Professor Josep Samitier, coordinator of the Spanish Platform on Nanomedicine and researcher at the Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia, Joan-Albert Vericat, from the Noscira biopharmaceutical firm and Dr Simó Schwartz, from the Research Centre in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology for Nanomedicine (CIBBIM-Nanomedicine) of the Vall d'Hebron Research Institute. Several researchers from the UAB-CIE aggregation institutes will also be participating and presenting their research results.
The event will end with a networking session and a poster presentation on projects being carried out with the objective of obtaining feedback on their results from other workshop participants.
The workshop was organised under the scientific direction of a committee presided by Dr Antoni Villaverde and with the collaboration of the UAB-CIE Biocluster, the Barcelona Nanocluster Bellaterra (BNC-b), the UAB Research Park (PRUAB) and the Biomedical Research Networking Center in Bioengineering, Biomaterials and Nanomedicine - (CIBER-BBN).
