Launch of the EU project MOZART for the development of smart nanomatrices as a platform for targeted therapies for bone and wound healing (www.mozartproject.eu)
The European Commission’s Horizon 2020 Programme seeks to introduce nanomaterials for medical applications.
In response to this challenge, on 1st November 2015, the project “MOZART- MesopOrous matrices for localiZed pH-triggered releAse of theRapeuTic ions and drugs”, (4,65 million € ) was launched. The MOZART project involves 8 different countries and 11 partners, 5 high tech SMEs and 6 top European Universities. The overall objective of this four-year highly multidisciplinary project is to develop a library of novel and smart inorganic nanomatrices as a versatile platform for targeted therapies to promote bone and wound healing. Mozart aims to translate these new and innovative medical products into the clinic and market for the benefit of the patients and the industrial healthcare sector in Europe.
The potential impact of MOZART is enormous as in EU alone, 350 000 patients per year suffer delayed or non-union bone fractures and 2.2 million patients suffer from chronic non-healing wounds.
We are proud to present the newest member of our team: M.Sc. Aylin Atakan. She has several years of experience in working on mesoporous silica and its use in catalysis and drug delivery.
Emma Björk received a grant from the Swedish King’s foundation, Konung Carl XVI Gustaf 50-årsfond, for her research regarding how to use metal doped mesoporous silica in catalytic applications.
