Smart4Fabry is the acronym of a H2020 funded Project that stands for “Smart functional GLA-nanoformulation for Fabry disease”. Smart4Fabry is a collaborative project funded under the H2020 EU Research and Innovation programme. This project is coordinated by Dr. Nora Ventosa, from the Institut de Ciència de Materials de Barcelona (ICMAB-CSIC) and Dra. Miriam Royo from Multivalent System for Nanomedicine group (MS4N), of the Institute for Advanced Chemistry of Catalonia (IQAC-CSIC). Both groups are part of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) and Centro de Investigación Biomédica en Red de Bioingeniería, Biomateriales y Nanomedicina (CIBER-BBN).

Smart-4-Fabry has been conceived and created to obtain a new nanoformulation of GLA, that will improve the efficacy and toleration compared to the actual treatment with non-formulated GLA. The final benefit will be seen as considerable reduction on the Fabry disease treatment cost and a substantial improvement in the life-quality of Fabry disease patients.

Smart-4-Fabry will impact on a major health problem, the existence of new therapies for rare diseases, which constitutes a priority societal challenge as shown in the H2020 Work Programmes. Rare diseases, like Fabry disease, mean a major health problem for a significant number of people in total, but affecting small number of patients for each individual disease.

This workshop will take place on 3rd February at 14:00h.

Join the Smart4Fabry Final Workshop to learn from expert speakers how, why and for what the solution proposed by Smart4Fabry was conceived, a sign of cooperation at European level to boost nanomedicine development and translation to clinical stages.

See you there!
