Join Precision NanoSystems for its second annual nanomedicines symposium, entitled Nanomedicines: enabling new therapeutic modalities, on the 15th of July in Boston, MA. Following the success of last year’s inaugural event, the symposium will bring together distinguished researchers and drug developers from across the nanomedicines industry, and will precede the Controlled Release Society’s Annual Meeting and Exposition from the 16th to 18th of July.
The symposium schedule has been designed to provide an overview of the latest developments in nanomedicine research, including strategies for overcoming in vitro and in vivo barriers to effective and targeted drug delivery. It will cover a diverse range of applications, with the keynote address – To target or not to target: lessons from RNAi-based targeted lipid nanoparticles – being provided by Professor Dan Peer from the Department of Cell Research and Immunology at Tel Aviv University. Other topics covered during the symposium will explore cutting-edge research in the fields of gene therapy, genetic vaccines and small molecule delivery. This will include industry talks from GSK, CureVac and Genentech, as well as presentations from the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Centre, the University of British Columbia and Houston Methodist/Weill Cornell Medical College.
The symposium will also give attendees a chance to explore the latest enabling technologies in the nanomedicines sector – with presentations from Precision NanoSystems and event sponsors Spectradyne, SpectrumLabs, Malvern Instruments and Sigma-Aldrich – as well as providing networking opportunities throughout the day.

New Chemical Synthesis Process: Synergy of Two Catalysts in One FlaskNews
Researchers report the one-step synthesis of a ketone from an aldehyde by the combination of thiazolium N-heterocyclic carbene and palladium/bisphosphine catalysts in one flask. The two catalysts function in a synergistic manner. This study is expected to lead to new synthesis processes of precursor compounds for medications.READ MORE
Drug-Delivery System Can Help Heal Even Without DrugsNews
A particular hydrogel, a self-assembling multidomain peptide (MDP) with the amino acid sequence K2(SL)6K2, is bioactive. Researchers found that even without additives their MDP is rapidly infiltrated by host cells, provokes a temporary inflammatory response, does not develop a fibrous capsule, supports the infiltration of a mature vascular network and recruits nerve fibers.READ MORE
