Copenhagen Nanomedicine Day 2018

Nanomedicine is a relatively new field that is currently gaining steam and is expected to contribute to the future of health care and personalized medicine in a significant way. At the University of Copenhagen and other Copenhagen-based universities, biotechnology companies and health related institutes, there is a significant amount of research going on in the nanomedicine area. To make these efforts more visible, allow for collaborative projects, and share the available resources, we are organizing the already second Copenhagen Nanomedicine Day 2018. It will take place on Monday, October 29, 2018.

In addition to local leaders in Nanomedicine, we will also have a few international speakers. They include Dr. Pieter Cullis from Vancouver, Canada, a pioneer in drug delivery of nanomedicines who developed three clinically approved nanomedicine drugs for the treatment of cancer, Dr. Silvio Dutz from Ilmenau, Germany, who will discuss the magnetically initiated remote release of drugs, and Dr. Raffaella Rossin from Nijmegen, The Netherlands, who developed an in vivo system of chemically triggered click-to-release antitumor drugs. Have a look at the excellent full program here:

Final programme

There will also be a poster session at the end of the day, with 3 cash poster prizes. Please send your 1-page poster abstract covering anything nanomedicine related, and formatted as in the following template by email to . Please include a figure, as shown in the template, as that makes for a much nicer abstract.

Participation at the Copenhagen Nanomedicine Day 2018 is free to all, thanks to a grant from the Drug Research Academy and the Lundbeck Foundation, and we will provide you with all the food and even beer during the poster session at the end of day. However, you do have to register online as soon as possible – but the excellent talks make it worthwhile. 

Online Registration

The symposium is arranged on behalf of the graduate programme in pharmaceutical sciences, Drug Research Academy, Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, University of Copenhagen by Professor Urs Häfeli, Department of Pharmacy and co-funded by the Lundbeck Foundation.

Participation is free of charge and open for attendance by all interested parties.
