Biopraxis Research in Antigua (Guatemala)


Biopraxis attended a course in Antigua (Guatemala) aimed to establish a network for the exchange of knowledge on regenerative medicine, genic and celullar therapy and its clinic application. The course was organized jointly by CSIC and the Spanish Agency for Cooperation and Development (AECID)

IMDEA Nanoscience representing NoCanTher at World Cancer Research Day in Madrid


Prof. Álvaro Somoza participated in a number of events marking the launch of 24th September as World Cancer Research Day, an initiative created by the Asociación Española Contra el Cáncer.

The first event was the official launch of World Cancer Research Day, and a chance to meet the Queen of Spain who highlighted in her speech the importance of investigation in fight against cancer (Álvaro Somoza is pictured below with Letizia the Queen of Spain and Eugenio Vázquez from USC).

Third NoCanTher Meeting in Vitoria


On the 3rd-4th of May the consortium met for the third meeting of the NoCanTher Project consortium, the meeting was hosted by Biopraxis in Vitoria, Spain at the Alava Technology Park (Parque Tecnológico De Álava).

The meeting gave everyone a chance to meet up face-to-face and talk about the project’s progress over the past 6 months. All members of the consortium were represented and the first day started with a tour of the sterile production facilities of Biopraxis. This was one of the highlights of the meeting as it gave us all a chance to see where the medical device will finally be produced, providing a huge boost for everyone.

The day continued with Prof Álvaro Somoza (IMDEA Nanociencia) updating the team on the project and key events of the past months. The WP leaders then summarised the progress of each individual work package, and a healthy open discussion was carried out about the challenges over the next 6 months. We then had a chance to enjoy the hospitality of the Basque country with a dinner organised by Biopraxis where we had the chance to taste some local dishes –I’m sure everyone would agree that whoever hosts the next event has a lot to live up to!

As always the second day focused on the next 6 months and each work package summarised their plans for the next few months. We set some targets and deadlines which I’m sure will set the project well moving in to the next stages. The venue for the next meeting is yet to be confirmed but we have a few options which will be discussed in the coming weeks. The one thing for sure is we will have a lot to talk about regarding the progress of this exciting project.

NoCanTher at CLINAM 2017


Our consortium had a great presence at CLINAM 2017, the 10th European and Global Conference and Exhibition for Clinical Nanomedicine & Targeted Medicine. Adriele Prina-Mello (TCD) gave an overview of the project in his talk "NoCanTher project: clinical translation roadmap for iron oxide nanoparticles". Also present were Oihane Ibarrola and Ángel del Pozo (Biopraxis) and they mentioned the project as part of their talk "Nano‚Äźonco: Biopraxis ROADMAP to Nanomedicine Translation for Cancer Treatment". Once again the project was seen by both a European and global audience of both researchers and clinicians.


The European Foundation for Clinical Nanomedicine is a non-profit institution aiming at advancing medicine to the benefit of individuals and society through the application of nanoscience.
