Research on Pharmaceutical Technology in Ibero-America

Research on Pharmaceutical Technology in Ibero-America

The objective of this workshop is to present some of the most important lines of research in pharmaceutical technology in which universities of different countries of Ibero-America currently work. There will be a review of both own research and others conducted in collaboration between universities. The three selected conferences cover both innovative aspects of pharmaceutical technology, as well as other highly relevant worldwide:
– the design and development of new controlled release systems for topical and transdermal administration of drugs,
– the possibilities offered by different types of nanoparticles as targeting systems of antitumor drugs, increasing their effectiveness and decreasing their toxicity
– the research and development of safe and effective phytomedicines as a strategy to promote the economic, social, health and scientific development of regions with an abundance of vegetables with medicinal properties.
