2nd Workshop on Translational Nanomedicine

26/09/2017

CIDETEC faces the new era of Nanomedicine

More than two decades of intensive basic research on nanomedicine has generated good knowledge on the limitations and the benefits of the use of nanotechnology in the biomedical field.

Private and public initiatives have been launched to overcome technical difficulties that limit the translation of basic knowledge on nanomedicine into new products. At this stage, it is essential to gather the attention of nanotechnologists, clinicians, regulators and pharma industry to link bench to bed.

This has been the objective of the 2nd Workshop on translational nanomedicine organized by CIDETEC Nanomedicine in the frame of EC funded NanoPilot project. During two days the audience has assisted to 25 talks covering aspects on how to be prepared for translational research in early stage of development, new technologies for manufacturing, advanced characterization and regulation.

We had the opportunity to learn about regulatory aspects with César Hernandez (head of the department of medicines for Human Use). Pilar Calvo from Pharmamar, and Gemma Lahuerta from Reig Jofre showed us the pharma industry perspectives and key aspects for translation. Patrick Boisseau presented the initiatives from the European Nanomedicine Platform to promote the translation of nanomedicine and we also learnt from first level researchers as Abhay Pandit from the National University of Ireland in Galway and Simó Schwartz from Vall d’Hebron Institute of Research.

The assistants had the opportunity to participate in a demonstration in microfluidics and visit the new pilot plant built in CIDETEC for the manufacturing of investigational medicinal products.
