Advanced Drug Delivery and Targeting Course

November 25 – November 29, 2019 Leiden

A joint effort between the Leiden Academic Centre for Drug Research (LACDR), the Groningen University Institute of Drug Exploration (GUIDE), and the Utrecht Institute for Pharmaceutical Sciences (UIPS)

Course supervisors: Dr. Bram Slütter and Dr. Jeroen Bussmann

In the development of new products one of the main scientific challenges is to deliver the drug in a controlled way at the desired site of action. The formulation of the therapeutic agent therefore plays a key part in the biological efficacy, and is of great interest for current drug research.

The Advanced Drug Delivery and Targeting course will be given by experts in the fields of:

  • Nanoparticulate delivery systems
  • Vaccine delivery and diseases
  • New model systems for delivery and targeting
  • Imaging and theranostics

The course will provide an in depth overview of the newest strategies and achievements in the drug delivery and targeting field. Particular emphasis will be put on the delivery of macromolecules, including vaccines and/or genetic material and contrast agents for imaging. In addition, the use of novel systems like the zebrafish, organoids and human ex vivo skin in the development of drug delivery systems will be thoroughly discussed. The participants will actively work in groups on assignments in which they will address various issues relevant to the development of therapeutic strategies employing drug delivery and drug targeting technologies.

Who should attend: Researchers (PhD candidates, research trainees, postdoctoral fellows, research associates, research project managers) in Universities, Pharmaceutical Industry, Biotechnology Industry, and Federal Research Laboratories, whose research or research interests lie in the area of new technologies facilitating drug distribution, delivery, release, and effectiveness.

Course fee (including course materials, lunches and dinner on Monday. Travel costs and housing are excluded)

  • GUIDE/UIPS/LACDR PhD students: € 425
  • PhD-students and postdocs from other universities: € 575
  • Non-academic affiliates/Industry: € 1,450

The course is limited to 35 participants, who will be selected based on the order of application. If less than 15 participants register, the course will be cancelled.

Deadline for registration is October 11, 2019
