Aims:

  • identify medical needs from applications in clinical use and translate the medical need into a scientific question
  • understand opportunities and obstacles of nanocarriers in the complex biological surrounding of blood plasma and in whole organisms
  • to develop a process which uses pharmaceutical grade excipients that can be transformed into a good-manufacturing-production (GMP) process
  • develop assays for testing of nanocarriers during production and for a batch-to-batch release
  • perform the crucial in vivo studies for effectiveness and toxicology
  • transform this towards a process performed in a small-medium enterprise (SME)
