2nd Annual Complex Formulations Symposium 2016
Advancements in new technologies, developments and manufacturing
EmulTech and Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) hosted this year´s 2
nd Annual Complex Formulations Symposium September 15th, in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. The event was opened and chaired by Carmen van Vilsteren, director of TU/e Strategic Area Health. The goal of this event was to share advancements of new biological and health related technologies, developments and manufacturing.
Van Vilsteren introduced all the visitors with the university's attributions to a stage where scientists and engineers can present new classes of medications by exploration of exciting technologies from lab bench to hospital bed. Thereafter, Robin de Bruijn (CTO EmulTech) presented updates on EmulTech's microfluidic technology. A very innovative technology, where on his turn, David Needham (Director SPSE and professor in Mechanical Engineering & Material Science) subsequently elaborated with single microparticle engineering and its anti-cancer applications in nanoparticle drugs. Dr. Patricia Dankers explained supramolecular biomaterials for regenerative medicines and prof. dr. ir. Remco Tuinier talked about colloidal systems for drug delivery. Also, dr. Lars Mulder, had an interesting word about Ex-vivo organ models, which assess the functionality of biomedical products.
The event ended with informal drinks and networking. A pleasing atmosphere of interest arose when everyone emerged in their discussions. Discussions which probably will continue in the near future since we are looking forward to welcome you again next year!
"Great event, really enjoyed the high level of talks and interest at the mixer" David Needham PhD, DSc (Nottingham), Director, Center for Single Particle Science and Engineering, and Professor, Dept Mechanical Engineering and Material Science Duke University, USA
