The very first meeting of the CRS BeNeLux & France Local Chapter Board Members took place on 16th of April in Utrecht, the Netherlands. Important decisions have been made and 6 people have been elected to form Executive Council and lead the chapter during the next term 2019-2020! More details will follow!
The Controlled Release Society’s Patrick Couvreur Student Travel Grants aim to promote student connectivity by providing travel grants to promising students in the field of delivery science around the world to attend the 2019 CRS Annual Meeting being held in Valencia, Spain, July 21-24, 2019. The Student Travel Grant Program gives current CRS student and post-doc members the opportunity to attend the CRS Annual Meeting. Applicants must have been accepted to present (either an oral or poster) at the CRS Annual Meeting. Award selection will be based on the quality of the applicant's science reflected in their research abstract, impact statement, and curriculum vita. The amount of the award(s) will be based upon the number of accepted applicants and available funds.
This year the four young scientists from our Local Chapter were nominated for the CRS Young Scientist Travel Grant Award 2019 to support their participation at the CRS Annual Meeting & Exhibition in Valencia, Spain on 20-24th of July with 500 $ each. These young scientists are Board Members of the Chapter who actively participate in its development from the very beginning, namely:
1. Valentina Francia, Postdoctoral fellow at Groningen University and Chapter Social Media Coordinator, will present her topic on “Studying the Biological and Cellular Interactions of Nanomedicines for Drug Delivery”
2. Keni Yang, PhD at Groningen University and Chapter Membership Coordinator, will present her work on the “Effect of Protein Source on Nanoparticle-Protein Corona and Cellular Uptake”
3. Koen van der Maaden, Postdoctoral fellow at Leiden University LACDR and Chapter Social Media Coordinator, will present how “Intradermal vaccination with influenza hemagglutinin-loaded ceramic nanoporous microneedle arrays induces protective immune responses”
4. Natalia Vtyurina, Postdoctoral fellow at Groningen University and Chapter Founder & Coordinator, will present her efforts on building up “A live-cell fluorescence imaging platform to characterize internalization of nanomedicines by human cells”
The grants will be distributed to awardees at the CRS Annual Meeting 2019 in Valencia, Spain.
Did you know that you can publish in the CRS journals of Control Release, Biomaterials, Drug Delivery and Translational Research, CRS Newsletter, Book Series and Webcasts? They offer a breadth of scientific knowledge covering new technologies and science in the multi-disciplinary delivery field through fundamental delivery research, development, regulatory science, and clinical translation.
