the 16th escdd symposium will take place on 12-15 April 2022!

The 16th edition of the European Symposium on Controlled Drug Delivery will take place on 12-15 April 2022.

Although the previous editions of the ESCDD had to be postponed due to the COVID-19 situation, we are confident that in 2022 we will be able to organize an onsite edition of the 16th edition of the European Symposium on Controlled Drug Delivery.

We are very pleased to inform you that the symposium will be held from 12 - 15 April 2022.

The beautiful location of hotel Zuiderduin (www.zuiderduin.nl), near the sandy beaches, and a promising symposium program ensure both a relaxing and scientifically rewarding event.

Throughout the previous editions, the symposium has established itself as a high-quality symposium on all aspects of Advanced Drug Delivery. The program comprises about 25 lectures given by invited experts from academia and industry on cutting edge topics in this field. Sufficient time is reserved for discussions and meeting of colleagues during the lecture program and our highly successful poster session.

SCIENTIFIC TOPICS OF THE SYMPOSIUM WILL INCLUDE:

  • NUCLEIC ACID DELIVERY
    Challenges and opportunities in controlled delivery of antisense oligonucleotide, small interfering RNA, and DNA therapeutics.
  • PRECISION MEDICINE
    Tailoring medical treatment to the individual characteristics of a patient.
  • NOVEL CONCEPTS, MATERIALS AND TECHNIQUES
    New approaches to overcome physical and biological barriers in controlled drug delivery
  • TRANSLATIONAL DRUG DELIVERY RESEARCH
    Translation of nanomedicines from academia to industry
  • TARGETED DRUG DELIVERY
    Exploiting extra- and intracellular transport mechanisms for targeted delivery

Besides the invited lecture program, a lively poster session with drinks and snacks will be held on Wednesday evening. Two poster prizes of € 500 will be awarded for the best presentations!

All participants are encouraged to contribute to this event.

The symposium covers 2.5 days; from Wednesday morning 13 April 2022 until and including lunch on Friday 15 April 2022.

Registration is open from Tuesday 12 April 18.00-21.00h at the symposium desk, after which you can join our get2gether party in Hotel Zuiderduin.

On site accommodation and meals in Hotel Zuiderduin from 12 April (evening) until 15 April (lunch) are included in the symposium registration fee.

We hope you will once again consider attending this exciting symposium, where research at the forefronts of controlled drug delivery will be discussed and where you catch up with colleagues and establish new collaborations. 

PLEASE SAVE THE DATE IN YOUR CALENDAR AND DISSEMINATE THIS ANNOUNCEMENT TO YOUR COLLEAGUES.
