CRS Italy Workshop 2023

5-7 October, 2023 - Palermo

Introduction and theme

The theme of the 2023 CRS Italia Workshop is about the design and the clinical application of the “Next generation biomaterials and carriers”. Clinical and pharmaceutical scientists, biomedical engineers, material scientists, biophysicists will discuss novel therapies, use of new materials and delivery systems for difficult-to-treat diseases (cancer, inflammation, neuro degeneration, tissue fibrosis). The workshop will be articulated over 5 sessions, with 11 invited talks and several selected speakers among the CRS Italy community, poster sessions, and one full Saturday morning Young CRS Italy Scientist session. Multiple break sessions will facilitate interactions, face-to-face discussions, and help launching new interdisciplinary collaborations. The Organizing and Scientific committees look forward to welcome you all in Palermo for a vibrant meeting with a strong audience participation.
