Summer school ’18

Summer School on Smart Nanomaterials for Drug Delivery

Short description of the event

Summer School on Smart Nanomaterials for Drug Delivery (S3ND2) will be organized on June 10-15th 2018 in the island of Capri (Anacapri (NA), Italy) by the Consortium VAHVISTUS of the EU-project H2020-MSCA-RISE-2016 n° 734759.

The School will take place at the Conference Center “Paradiso” in Anacapri (NA).  The Organizing and Scientific Committees are pleased to invite the scientific community to participate the S3ND2.

Nanomaterials and related technologies led to qualitative changes in various areas of human activity. Particularly, smart nano-scaled particles can provide a quantum advance in different fields of medicine, whether we speak about diagnostics or therapy. The Summer School will be focused on Smart Nanomaterials for Drug Delivery. In fact, the advances in nanotechnology not only give rise to novel drugs, but also reformulate the already known ones to increase their efficacy, improve delivery, and lower side effects.

In this summer school, invited professors from several European countries will provide an overview of the existing nano- and micro-technologies in drug delivery and those under development. The courses with cover the innovative smart nanomaterials and smart polymers for drug delivery, new drug delivery approaches, encapsulation technologies, techniques for characterization of nanomaterials, etc.

The school will last five days (June 11-15th) for a total of 30 hours of lectures.

Local Scientific Committee: Cosimo Carfagna, Maurizio Avella, Pierfrancesco Cerruti, Emilia Di Pace, all IPCB-CNR, and Veronica Ambrogi – Federico II University of Naples

Local Secretariat : Lorena Affatato, Cristina De Capitani, and Diana De Rosa (all IPCB-CNR)

Participation in the Summer School will provide 6 European credits (ECTS) awarded by Federico II University of Naples

The School participants will have the opportunity to attend a Workshop Advances in Biomaterials for Aging Diseases on the morning of June 16th, this event does not require any registration fee.

It is possible for a participant to present a poster having standard dimensions 70 x 100 cm. During the poster presentation  each participant, even those have not presented a poster, will have 5 min to present own research activity. This brief presentation will be considered a part of final test.

We look forward to seeing you in Capri Island.
