The EUNCL (European Nanomedicine Characterization Laboratory) was established as a decentralised institution composed of multiple European key reference centers combining diverse core competences in one unique service center.
The satellite laboratories are located in Europe and have been selected based on their technological offer or expertise, beyond the expertise already available within EUNCL. The involvement of satellite laboratories will enable EUNCL to adapt to the broad needs of the community on a case-by-case basis. Indeed, as nanomedicine is a complex field of research with diverse applications, routes of administration, and nanomaterial types, it is expected that some very unique expertise not covered by EU-NCL may be needed on a case-by-case basis.
In that event, EUNCL will facilitate the connection between the Med-NP developers and the satellite laboratories with the expertise necessary to address those specific analytical questions. Therefore, the structure of EUNCL is kept open and sufficiently flexible including the option for later access of new partners after the project’s runtime.
The concept behind TRANS-INT is the rational design of oral nanomedicines based on safety, mechanistic, bioengineering and pharmaceutical technology criteria.
The consortium is composed of 16 partners from industry and academia with complementary leading expertise in chemistry, chemical engineering, pharmaceutical technology, molecular physiology, biopharmaceutics, toxicology and drug development.

The idea of TheraGlio is to develop a multimodal imaging system for Theranostics (therapy+diagnosis) of patients bearing malignant glioma, the most common primary brain tumour.
This technology will avail of new generation Microbubbles that can simultaneously act as drug delivery system and contrast agent for Magnetic Resonance Imaging, intra-operative Contrast-Enhanced Ultrasound and intra-operative fluorescence microscopic. This novel imaging system will provide multimodal image guidance during tumour resection with the final goal of prolonging patients’ survival, as a result of a safer and larger tumour resection and tailored delivery of specific chemotherapeutic molecules.

This collaboration was started with the following aims
- Optimization of Doxebo dosage and method of administration in the porcine in vivo model
- Development of anti-PEG and anti-Doxil IgG and IgM detection methods in order to elucidate the mechanism of the immune reaction
- Development of assessment methods for plasma thromboxane and leucotrienes in domestic pig and rat
