IBBR Project #282

Extracellular vesicles from a natural source for tailor-made nanomaterials
Project ID 282
ID 801338
Acronym VES4US
Project acronym and title Extracellular vesicles from a natural source for tailor-made nanomaterials
Contract GA 801338 H2020-FETOPEN-2016-2017
Description VES4US is a project funded by the FET-Open Call of the Horizon2020 Programme of the European Commission which goal is to develop a radically new platform for the efficient production and functionalization of EVs. This will enable for their exploitation as tailor-made products in the fields of nanomedicine, cosmetics and nutraceutics. A core aspect of the project is to focus vesicles from an identified natural source to constitute a more economically viable and sustainable source of EVs. This process will allow the development of natural nanocarriers with unprecedented abilities for drug delivery in specific tissues such as brain, lung, skin, dendritic or tumour cells.
