Dr Vinkovic Vrcek presents PHOENIX-OITB at International Day of Women in Science celebration in Zagreb

On February 10, 2023, the Institute for Medical Research and Occupational Health (IMROH / IMI) joined the Zagreb University of Applied Health Sciences in celebrating the International Day of Women in Science.

On that occasion, IMROH’s women scientists gave two lectures to students, teachers, and collaborators of the University:

  • Nanotechnology in modern medicine (Dr Ivana Vinković Vrček)
  • The importance of communication skills in science (Dr Sanja Stipičević).

During her lecture, Dr Vinkovic Vrcek presented new research capacities of IMROH and current international projects as well as the application of in vivo and in vitro methods for assessing the safety and effectiveness of nanomedicines. PHOENIX-OITB was highlighted as an important project for the future use of nanotechnology in modern medicine, considering its aim is to provide a single entry point for all the steps of novel nanopharmaceutical development and therefore enable complete, fast and cost-effective transfer of nanopharmaceuticals from lab bench to clinical trials.

We would like to thank the University of Applied Health Sciences in Zagreb for this invitation and another opportunity to present PHOENIX to the scientific community!
