Workshop: The Targeted Drug Delivery Cluster

1 June 2011
Room Liszt

This is a public workshop organised by an FP7 cluster of NMP and HEALTH research projects on targeted nanopharmaceuticals for use in medicine. The cluster gathers about 24 projects and 7 of these will be presented during this event. It will be shown how targeted nanopharmaceuticals have potential to be more effective and have side less side effects for therapy of a wide range of serious diseases such as cancer, Alzheimer’s, rheumatoïd and osteo-arthritis, diabetes etc.
