Nanospheres and Cancer

On November 20th the College will host a one-day meeting in the College lecture theatre organised by L Visai and focusing on New strategies for breast cancer therapy based on the use of nano spheres, a project recently supported through the crowd funding initiative of the University of Pavia.  Nanospheres - and nanotechnologies in general - offer considerable scope for improving selective drug delivery to cancer cells and activation of prodrugs and the meeting will constitute the opportunity to  discuss work in progress in this area in several Italian laboratories and its applicability to treat cancer.  It will also offer the opportunity to inform the local academic community of a new programme of work, ie a Centre for Health Technologies, recently launched by the University. The meeting is open to all interested participants, the programme of the meeting (in Italian) is available here and further information can be obtained from This email address is being protected from spambots.
