12th International Symposium on Polymer Therapeutics
May 2018 - Centro de Investigación Príncipe Felipe, Valencia
From the 28rd to the 30th of May, the Centro de Investigación Príncipe Felipe (CIPF) hosted the 12th edition of the International Symposium on Polymer Therapeutics: From Laboratory to Clinical Practice.
Nearly 200 experts in the field, from over 20 countries, shared their recent studies concerning polymer therapeutics, drugs with the capacity to augment efficacy and, at the same time, reduce secondary effects.
The symposium, organized by Dr María Jesús Vicent and her team in the Polymer Therapeutics Laboratory, converted Valencia into the world capital of "nanomedicine" for these days. This year's plenary speakers were David J. Mooney (Harvard Univ., USA), Peter Turecek (Shire PLC, Austria), Samir Mitragotri (Harvard Univ., USA), and Jan E. Schnitzer (PRISM, USA).
