Another successful Nano World Cancer Day

The other speakers were Ana Roda of the Fundación Científica de la Asociación Española contra el Cáncer (AECC); Salvador Borrós and Anna Cascante of SAGETIS Biotech; IBEC’s Pere Roca-Cusachs and Joan Montero; and Jaume Mora, Scientific Director of onco-hematology at Hospital Sant Joan de Déu. They presented various new advances in the field and what they may imply in terms of new opportunities in diagnostics and therapies against cancer.

Austria, France, Iceland, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Turkey and the United Kingdom were also holding events simultaneously on Nano World Cancer Day, each attended by nanomedicine experts from each country and from different backgrounds including researchers, physicians, oncologists and entrepreneurs.

Nano World Cancer Day was first held in 2013 and is organized at the European level by the European Technology Platform for Nanomedicine (ETPN) under European project ENATRANS (Enabling Nanomedicine Translation), and locally by the different components of the ETPN in each country.
