3rd Scientific BIOCAPS seminar: Bio-inspired Materials for Tissue Engineering


The Biomedical Research Institute of Vigo (IBIV), within the framework of the European project BIOCAPS (Capacities Biomedical Support Programme), organized the First Seminar on Bio-inspired Materials for Tissue Engineering, to be held next October 25, 2013 at the School of Industrial Engineering, Campus of the University of Vigo.

This seminar aims to deepen the strategies currently applied in the research of bio-inspired materials oriented Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine given the pressing need to provide solutions for the replacement, repair and regeneration of tissues and organs. These lines of research are looking primarily to promote the restoration of the functionality of a living tissue by the design of advanced biomaterials, bio-inspired nanostructures and fabrication of scaffolds organic or inorganic with specific morphologies and structures, to combine with cell’s own patient or animal model experimentation.

The initiative will feature the participation of experts of high relevance and aims to provide a broad perspective on the progress in this field, along with the search for meeting points, to provide solutions for the future of medicine and improve the quality of life.

Registration is free

2nd Scientific BIOCAPS Seminar 2013


The Biomedical Research Institute of Vigo (IBIV) organizes under the BIOCAPS project framework, the “2nd Scientific BIOCAPS Seminar 2013”. The objective of this activity is to present new clinical perspectives on Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) as well as new approaches to the diagnosis and treatment of disease. It also aims to deepen the understanding of specific aspects of SLE such as the large multicenter cohort, the early atherosclerosis in patients with SLE, the use of new biological therapies or potential usefulness of precise therapeutic targets to treat disease.

The seminar will take place on October 4, 2013, in the Auditorium of the Hospital Meixoeiro, the official language is English. The programme of the workshop can be downloaded from the following link

This activity is open to all persons interested in the disease Lupus Erythematosus.

Pre-registration is required. Please complete your registration here. Registration is free and is open until September 30, 2013.

1st Nanomedicine Award


On benhalf of ETPN, please find below information concerning NanoMed Award (entries for nomination open until September 7th).

The goal of the award, open to companies, academic and private researchers, is to promote excellent new projects in nanomedicine and the winning projects should be diagnostic and therapeutic approaches that address unmet medical needs shared by many and are not feasible without nanotechnology.

The Award Ceremony and presentation of the winning projects will take place during the Nanomedicine panel discussion at BioEurope 2013 in Vienna from 4 to 6 November 2013, and would hence be a major opportunity to extend nanomedicine awareness to the biotech and pharmaceutical communities for new development opportunities.

The prizes include full ticket to BioEurope 2013, presentations during the largest nanomedicine summit CLINAM 2014, one year free membership at ETPN, and free consultation action by ETPN translational experts.

Submission deadline: 7 September 2013
