Plenary and Keynote Speakers
The plenary and keynote speakers for 9th International Conference on Nanomedicine, Drug Delivery, and Tissue Engineering (NDDTE 2024) will be announce soon, thank you for your patience!
Dr. Moein Moghimi
Newcastle University, UK
Moein Moghimi is a Professor of Pharmaceutics and Nanomedicine at the School of Pharmacy, and Translational and Clinical Research Institute, Newcastle University (UK), and an Adjoint Professor at the Skaggs School of Pharmacy, University of Colorado, Denver. He is co-founder of S M Discovery Group Inc. and S M Discovery Group Ltd. He further serves as an Associate Editor of Molecular Therapy (the flagship journal of the American Society of Gene Therapy) and Drug Delivery (Taylor and Francis). Previously, he was Chair of Nanomedicine at Durham University (UK), Professor of Nanomedicine at Copenhagen University, Director of the Centre for Pharmaceutical Nanotechnology and Nanotoxicology (Copenhagen University), Visiting Professor at the University of Padova (Italy) and Affiliate Professor at Houston Methodist Research Institute (Texas). He graduated with Honors in Biochemistry from the University of Manchester (UK) in 1985 and completed his PhD in Biochemistry at Charing Cross and Westminster Medical School (Imperial College). He is widely published and reported in the press, and recognised for his contribution to fundamental and translational research in nanomedicine and drug delivery, especially in mechanistic understanding of nanoparticle-mediated adverse reactions and complement activation processes, and as an inventor of many tissue-specific drug delivery systems and therapeutic platforms (e.g., NanoLigand Carriers for crossing the blood-brain barrier and targeting neurons and microglial cells). A 2021 study conducted by Stanford University list Moghimi among the top 0.1% of world’s leading scientists across in all fields, and top 60 in pharmacology in the world.
Topic of Keynote: Nanomedicine: A New Frontier in Precision Medicine
Dr. Giovanni Tosi
University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, Italy
Since November 2005, Dr. Giovanni Tosi is researcher in the scientific field of Pharmaceutical Technology at the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia (PI at the department of Pharmaceutical Sciences, which belongs to the faculty of Pharmacy). Since 2015, he is associate professor in the same field. He got certificate for Full professor in 2017, and now he is full Professor since 2020.He was born in 1977 (March, 2nd) in Bologna, Italy, and got his degree in Pharmacy in 2002 with 110/110. He got his PhD in Pharmaceutical Sciences in 2005 at the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, Italy. He was Coordinator of “Applied Technology” curricula for the PhD school in Health Products, member of Instruments Commission of Dep.Pharm.Sci., Contact Person ILO of Dep.Pharm.Sci, Research products, Representative of the Dep.Pharm.Sci. in the Central Board of Animal House and Committee for Research of University of Modena and Reggio Emilia. He now director of Hospital Pharmacy Specialization Programme and coordinator of KETs National Center for RNA drugs in Rare Diseases Spoke.
He is scientific delegate for international cooperation and coordinator of UNIMORE Nanomedicine Platform since 2017 and vice-chair of WG Nanotherapeutics in European Technology Platform for Nanomedicine since 2019 and now secretary of ETPN. The research activity is based on the development of lipid and polymeric systems for the delivery and the targeting of drugs to diseased tissues or cells. His works on nanomedicine for drug and gene delivery and targeting were honored with national prices and awards (La Manna Prize for Student Thesis he drived), Jorge Heller Oustanding Paper Award, 2005) and Innovation price (AFI2005, AFI 2006). His work on Nanoparticles for CNS drug delivery has been recently awarded as one of the Hot Topic (150 selected research over 19.000 proposals) at the World Neuroscience Meeting (Society for Neuroscience) in Washington DC, November 2011 and World Neuroscience Meeting (Society for Neuroscience) in New Orleans, November 2012. He is author or co-author of more than 100 publications in international journals and gave over 200 presentations (invited speaker, oral presentations and posters) in international and national congresses. He participated as collaborator or project leader in several Italian and International projects supported by the Italian Research Ministry, IMI project, Euronanomed grant, Ministry of International Cooperation Projects and POR FESR project. He is now collaborating with a broad network of scientists in the field confirmed by the international participation to publications and many national and international industries (Chiesi, Pfizer, Sanofi, Gilead Sciences, Biomarin). He currently acts as referee for the top journals in nanotechnology and nanomedicine such as Journal of Controlled Release, Biomaterial, Nanomedicine and many other journals dealing with Nanotechnology, Drug Delivery and Nanomedicine.He is Member of the Editorial Advisory Board of a number of international journals.
