NANBIOSIS in CIBER-BBN ANNUAL CONFERENCE 2017

CIBER-BBN will celebrate its 11th Annual Conference on November 13 and 14 in Santander. In these conference there will be a session dedicated to NANBIOSIS. Likewise, the annual meeting of the Scientific Technical Advisory Committee of NANBIOSIS will take place.

As in previous occasions, the meeting will serve to know the activity of NANBIOSIS, the Singular Technical Scientific Infrastructure (ICTS) of the CIBER-BBN and the Minimally Invasive Surgery Center Jesus Usón for the production and characterization of biomaterials, nanomaterials and devices up to its preclinical validation.

As a novelty, it will be presented at the conference, the new internal structure, generated by NANBIOSIS for the development of “turnkey” projects in which, taking advantage of the complementarity and experience of its Units, NANBIOSIS offers complete service packages, with added value, adapted to the client’s needs, for applications such as nanotherapeutic agents, regenerative medicine, medical and diagnostic devices, among others. Some of the packages that are already designed or in more advanced stages will be explained, among which stands out the service of characterization and cascade assessment of nanomaterials that includes the characterization of the physicochemical attributes, their biological properties in vitro (immunology, toxicology and efficacy), and its in vivo compatibility (immunology, toxicology and efficacy), using appropriate animal models, with the possibility of being subject to regulatory conditions of Good Laboratory Practices. Some success stories of these “turnkey” projects developed in NANBIOSIS will be shown.

On this occasion, in addition, it is planned a presentation of EATRIS , the European Infrastructure for the Translation of Medicine, with which NANBIOSIS has initiated a line of collaboration.

Since its launch in July 2015, NANBIOSIS has received more than 550 access requests through its website, with an average participation of some 80 competitive projects per year and with an annual income for its services of between 2 and 3 million euros. Among its users, there are more than 100 companies.

NANBIOSIS at CIBERDEM Annual meeting

Jesús Izco, Coordinator of NANBIOSIS, has presented NANBIOSIS-ICTS at the annual meeting of all CIBERDEM research groups, which takes place from 17 to 19 May 2017 at the Campus Hotel, on the Campus of the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, in Cerdanyola del Vallès.

Jesús Izco has explained the opportunities offered by the ICTS NANBIOSIS as a Platform for Research and Biomedical Innovation, giving examples of private-public collaboration in competitive calls (INNPACTOP, Challenges and H2020) in which NANBIOSIS has participated and explained the design of the new Nanomedicine Cascade Characterization Service, in which NANBIOSIS is working on.

CIBERDEM (Diabetes and Associated Metabolic Diseases) is to lead the investigative effort of excellence in diabetes and associated metabolic diseases, as well as to accelerate the transfer of results to clinical practice, favouring the flow of knowledge obtained in diabetes to other disciplines and vice versa.

It is formed by 30 reference groups located in 19 institutions in the consortium, including hospitals, universities and research centres of Spain, from 6 Spanish Regions. CIBERDEM works in three corporate programmes:

  • P1: Epidemiology, genetics and epigenetics of diabetes mellitus. Chronic complications and comorbidities.
  • P2: Molecular and cellular determinants of the function, lesion and protection of pancreatic islets. Regenerative medicine and advanced therapies.
  • P3: Cellular and molecular mechanisms involved in the development and progression of type 2 diabetes and identification of new therapeutic targets.
