Workshop on advanced drug delivery in Porto

Sarah and I are attending a workshop in nanomedicine . It is organised by SFnano, and held at the posh Tiara hotel in Porto. There were nice talks on pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics and the factors determining how drugs behave in the body before they reach the site of action. A good introduction to an exciting, but complex field, which is important in all aspects of drug development.

There were also interesting talks about challenges in both topical, pulmonary, oral and parenteral drug administration, and several talks about electroporation, and its application in anti-cancer chemotherapy.

All in all three very interesting days, and we even got time for one-hour walk in old Porto.
