NANO4TARMED is a prestigious Twinning project of EU’s Horizon 2020 programme led by doc. Vaclav Ranc, running from January 2021 until the end of 2023.  

It represents an interdisciplinary scientific cluster in which chemists, biologists and physicists bring their extensive expertise to reach a mutual aim—to deal with the fundamental issue of nanotechnology-driven anticancer drug delivery.  

Scientists from Research Center of Advanced Technologies and Materials (RCPTM; CZ), Maynooth University (NUIM; IE) and the Institute of Science and Technology for Ceramics (ISTEC; IT) came together to focus on development of a combination therapy based on simultaneous administration of two or more pharmacologically active agents with different modes of action using nanocarriers for the delivery.
