MAGBBRIS Kickoff meeting

The MAGBBRIS Consortium celebrated its Kickoff meeting in Barcelona during the 26th and 27th of March 2018. The project coordinator, Dr. Anna Rosell, welcomed the participants at the Vall d'Hebron Research institute (VHIR) were we could finally meet each other in person.

During the meetings we had the opportunity to understand better the EuroNanoMed Joint Call thanks to Janna Slabbekoorn from the Competitive Calls Unit from VHIR.

Afterwards we heard a little bit about each partner's background related to the project, which was particularly interesting as we are quite a multidisciplinary consortium.

We could learn about the past work using EPCs for the treatment of stroke, nanocapsule synthesis, pre-clinical and clinical Magnetic Resonance Imaging, different in vitro models of the blood-brain barrier, manufacturing of high volumes of proteins under GMP conditions and magnetic targeting of nanomaterials.

The meeting was very fruitful as we could put together a lot of ideas and set the timeplan for the first months of the project. We are looking forward for the next meeting in Lens in 2019!
