Virtual Workshop: Measurement Technologies in Nanomedicine
June 14 - June 16
Nanomedicines and nano delivery systems are employed to deliver therapeutic agents to specific targeted sites in a controlled manner. Although nano-drug delivery systems that cover a diverse range have been a research hotspot for many years, recent success in lipid nanoparticle technology that allows delivery of nucleic acids intracellularly has placed nanomedicine at the centre stage.
The availability of robust and validated analytical methods and formally recognised consensus standards continue to lag, slowing progress and complicating the regulatory process. This workshop’s objective is to come together on efforts to develop, validate, and apply new measurement methods and standards for nano-enabled medical products, with a particular emphasis on lipid-based technologies.
The workshop intends to provide a virtual platform for industry, regulatory, and research scientists to discuss recent advances and practical challenges and to identify and prioritise specific measurement and standards needed to facilitate preclinical development and regulatory approval moving forward.
The meeting will take place online over three half-day sessions, 14-16 June 2021, with the following themes:
14 June: Nanomedicine – technology and applications
15 June: Regulatory science issues and perspectives
16 June: Standards and measurement development
