Steering the Clinical Translation of Delivery Systems for Drugs and Health Products

Aim of the Workshop

Besides the feasibility for industrial scale-up, accelerating the translation from bench-to-bedside of new technological strategies for controlled delivery and targeting of drugs and other actives relevant for health management, such as medical devices and nutraceuticals, would benefit from an even earlier evaluation in preclinical models and clinical settings. In the same time, translational medicine also performs in the opposite direction, incorporating clinical needs and observations into scientific hypotheses and innovative technological proposals. With these aims, the sessions proposed for the 2019 CRS Italy Chapter workshop will introduce the experience of Italian and worldwide researchers on how to foster the actual work in controlled release and drug delivery towards a reliable pre-clinical and clinical assessment.

Call for abstract

Contributions, including a brief description of the research, main results and future perspectives must be prepared using the abstract template of the workshop and submitted within October, 14 by email to the scientific secretariat to:
