Biological Barriers Conference and Workshop 2014 Featured

From 16 to 21 February 2014, the Helmholtz Institute for Pharmaceutical Research Saarland and Saarland University of Saarland will host the International Conference and Workshop on Biological Barriers.

Scientists from many countries will present their latest findings in the field of nanomedicine and in vitro methods for studying biological barriers such as the intestine, skin and lungs. The question as to how the skin barrier can be overcome so as to allow a substance to reach the desired target location will also be discussed, and the latest technologies will be presented, for instance a computer model of the skin barrier. Another topic is mucus/mucosa and surfactant as barriers for drug delivery through lungs, intestines and cheeks.

Three lab courses are being offered in conjunction with the conference.

Applications or early registrations can be submitted until 15 December 2014 to:
