Net4Science @ MedChem2019, Catanzaro June 13-15 2019

Net4Science is one of the major player of the joint meeting MehChem2019 between two international consortia: Paul Ehrlich Euro-PhD Network and MuTaLig COST Action. The meeting will be hosted in an exclusive location at the Complesso Monumentale San Giovanni in the center of Catanzaro in three days. Twenty countries of the pan-European area (Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Estonia, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Latvia, Malta, Poland, Portugal, Serbia, Slovenia, Spain, Switzerland, Turkey and United Kingdom). The rich scientific program includes the Net4Science poster multimedia session, designed to browse quickly among all 47 accepted contributions also using smartphone or tablets. This modern and technological dissemination tool is an experiment of Net4Science spinoff, that if successful, will be proposed and replicated in other qualified scientific meetings. Deeper information about this initiative can be found at on line at the official meeting web site http://medchem2019.unicz.it where it is possible to download the program, the book of the abstracts and the multimedia poster slides. Finally, during the meeting, two Net4Science spinoff members Donatella Bagetta and Antonio Lupia, will receive the Paul Ehrlich Euro-PhD award in the first day.

Net4Science involved in a multi-target international study against neurodegenerative diseases

The international cooperation in scientific research is a key point of success. Recently on European Journal of Medicinal Chemistry (Elsevier edition) a special issue on multi-target drug discovery (MTDD) was launched. The COST rules allow to support the open access version contribution if three or more different countries are involved in the publication. Among the currently accepted manuscripts one fulfilled all items within the third grant period of the MuTaLig COST Action. The topic is related to the design and development of MTDD compounds able to exert beneficial affect against neurodegenerations, and especially Alzheimer disease. The work is carried out by the collaboration of Portuguese, Spanish and Italian teams, including components of the Net4Science academic spinoff. The manuscript is freely accessible at this link https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ejmech.2019.04.026.

Net4Science contributes to an international review in the field of drug-food interactions

One of the major unsolved problems in oral therapies is due to the issue of drug-food interactions. The cooperative international COST Action CA16205 UNGAP www.ungap.eu, devoted to focus the attention on this topic, releases a up-to-date review manuscript on the European Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences, volume 134, pages 31–59. Net4Science gives a contribution in collaboration with more than ten research teams mostly belonging to several European institutions: Greifswald (Germany), Leuven (Belgium), Basel (Switzerland), Utrecht (the Netherlands), Athens (Greece), Prague and Hradec Králové (Czech Republic), Zagreb (Croatia), London and Nottingham (United Kingdom). The review is freely accessible as open access manuscript at www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0928098719301411
