NoCanTher at CLINAM 2018


Simó Schwartz from Vall d'Hebron Institut de Recerca contributed with a talk at CLINAM 2018 about precision medicine in the context of two european projects: NoCanTher and Smart4fabry. CLINAM 2018 is the 11th European and Global Summit for Clinical Nanomedicine, Targeted Delivery and Precision Nanomedicine, organized by the European Foundation for Clinical Nanomedicine, and held in Basel (Switzerland). The meeting was aimed at physicians, as well as nonscientists with a background in pharmacology, biology, physics, chemistry, medicine and engineering from the targeted medicine and delivery community. It was attended by about 500 participants from 35 countries, amongst them experts from venture companies were found.

NoCanTher in MagMeet 2018 Copenhagen


NoCanTher project had a strong presence in the 12th International Conference on the Scientific and Clinical Applications of Magnetic Carriers. The conference is part of a series of biennial conferences focused on the topic of magnetic particles, that brings together scientists from chemistry, physics, medicine, biology, engineering and materials sciences to discuss in a collaborative manner the applications in technology, preclinical research, diagnostic and therapeutic medicine. This year 2018, the meeting took place in Copenhagen, Denmark, and was attended by over 500 scientists and visitors.

Francisco Terán (senior researcher, IMDEA Nanociencia) presented both an oral and poster contribution, as well as a demonstration at the exhibition.

NoCanTher at ImagineNano


The Bilbao Exhibition Centre hosted the ImagineNano conference, which took place in Bilbao, Spain between the 1st and 3rd of February 2018.

Oihane Ibarrola, Scientific Responsible for Process Technologies and Ángel Del Pozo, Responsible of registrations and Patents, (BioPraxis), presented the talk about the Nocanther project under the title “Nanomedicine Upscaling for Early Clinical Phases of Cancer Therapy” where the audience of academics and experts of the industry well received the presentation.


The Nocanther project is a collaborative project funded by the European Commission within Horizon 2020. This project involves different companies such as Chemicell, Immupharma PLC, Resonant Circuits and different public agents such as IMDEA Nanociencia, CNIO, VHIR, VHIO, Trinity College and the University of Paris Diderot. The objective of this project is to develop an improved therapy based on iron oxide nanoparticles for the treatment of adenocarcinoma of the ductal pancreas.
