1st International Conference on Nanofluids (ICNf) and the 2nd European Symposium on Nanofluids (ESNf)

24th – 26th June 2019, Castellon (Spain)

www.icnf2019.com

These are a series of international conferences under the auspices of the European Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST) Action - NANOUPTAKE (CA15119, www.nanouptake.eu). Focuses of ICNf 2019 include production and characterization of nanofluids and liquid-based nanocomposites, nanofluid-based heat transfer and storage of thermal energy, as well as industrial applications.

Simona Barison, ICMATE CNR, is a member of the Scientific Committee and will be glad to provide information on the Conference.

SAPIR, società farmaceutica americana, svilupperà come antitumorale una molecola a base di rame frutto di una ricerca multidisciplinare tra ICMATE - CNR, UNIPD e UNICAM

I ricercatori Marina Porchia e Francesco Tisato dell’ICMATE-CNR di Padova, in collaborazione con Cristina Marzano e Valentina Gandin del Dipartimento di Scienze del Farmaco, dell’Università di Padova, e con Carlo Santini e Maura Pellei della Scuola di Scienze e Tecnologie dell'Università degli Studi di Camerino hanno sviluppato una molecola contenente rame, che ha mostrato alta efficacia verso diversi tumori solidi.

Questo complesso è in grado di veicolare selettivamente il rame nelle cellule tumorali e indurre, attraverso una complessa cascata di segnali, la distruzione delle cellule tumorali, comprese quelle refrattarie alla classica chemioterapia. L’attività antitumorale è accompagnata ad una bassa tossicità nei riguardi delle cellule non tumorali.
