Chair for Nanobiotech
Nicosia - Delivering the promise of nanotechnology to society for much-awaited products and jobs, hinges critically on transferring manufacturing technology to industrial production. For this purpose, the University of Cyprus (UCY) was recently awarded a Marie Curie Chair for research and training in nanomanufacturing. Particular emphasis will be put on applications related to drug release, pharmaceutical production through catalytic synthesis and scaffolding tissue engineering.
Although based at the University of Cyprus, the Marie Curie project will be broadly shared across Europe.
