The Faculty of Pharmacy joins for the first time the European Technology Platform on Nanomedicine (ETPN), with Prof. Santos the main local representative
The ETP Nanomedicine (ETPN) is an initiative led by industry since 2005 and set up together with the European Commission, to address the application of nanotechnology in healthcare. The ETPN believes that involving industry will accelerate the development of promising ideas, and provide the effective and safe healthcare products that patients demand.
The ETPN is officially recognized as an ETP, a key element in the European innovation ecosystem and a main bridge between the community and the European Commission to implement Research FrameWork Programmes.
The strategic research priorities of the ETP Nanomedicine represent the core fields of interest and activities of the members of the technology platform: Regenerative Medicine and Biomaterials, Nanotherapeutics (including drug delivery), Medical devices including Nanodiagnostics and Imaging.
Together, these bodies represent the diversity and complementarity of our unique think thank for medical applications of nanotechnologies in Europe, from academia to clinicians, SMEs and industry.
Our group is very delighted to be part of ETPN!
Very much looking forward to work with all of you!
