The Project ADVERT (Advanced Extracellular Vesicles for Enzyme Replacement Therapy) is a research valorisation project recently granted by CIBER.
The project pursues to advance the development of extracellular vesicles as treatments for lysosomal diseases, specially to bring new therapies to treat FABRY disease.
The ADVERT Project will count on the active particpation of two NANBIOSIS units of CIBER-BBN:
- Unit 20 of the ICTS NANBIOSIS at Vall d’Ebrón Hospital, led by Ibane Abasolo, who coordinates the project.
- Unit 1 Protein Production Platform (PPP), at the IBB-UAB, led by Neus Ferrer, throught the coordination in the project of José Luis Corchero.
The project will be financed with € 20,000.
The CIBER-BBN transfer program
The CIBER-BBN transfer program through its call for transfer and valorization projects has been designed to promote the transfer to the industrial sector of scientific or technological results derived from the research carried out by the CIBER-BBN groups. These transfer projects will make it possible to support the commercialization of said results, since there is a company that has shown interest in them and that provides at least, the same financing than CIBER-BBN for their achievement.
The call for valorisation projects is in its fourth edition, having already financed a total of fourteen projects.
