Summer School on Smart Nanomaterials for Drug Delivery

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 Centre of the National Research Council of Italy 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. Participation in the Summer School will provide 6 European credits (ECTS) awarded by Federico II University of Naples, Italy.
