Nanomedicines and Biomedical Engineering
Our research team makes the unique bridge between medical engineering, pharmaceutical nanotechnology and biomedical research by combining unique techniques, such as microfluidic glass technology, to help to build innovative nanomedicines/nanovectors and multidrug loading. To design and test the functionality and efficacy of these nanomedicines, we use state-of-the-art nanotheranostic technologies for personalized medicine, which allow the precisely engineering of materials at nanoscale to develop novel therapeutic formulations, including industrial scale-up validation, batch-to-batch reproducibility, and controllability of the nanomaterials’ physicochemical properties for translation into the clinic.
Former PhD student of Prof. Santos' Lab, Mónica Ferreira, receives the Albert Wuokko Award at the 1st FinPharmSci 2018
The Albert Wuokko Award is Finland's most prestigious Pharmaceutical Award bestowed by the Finnish Pharmaceutical Society
Prof. Santos and the Dean of Faculty of Pharmacy Prof. Jouni Hirvonen visited several Chinese Universities for future bilateral cooperation on nanomedicines
In China, we visited China Pharmaceutical University where we met the Rector of the University, the Dean of the School of Pharmacy, and the Dean...
