Net4Science published a review on bioactive components of the Mediterranean Diet endowed with multi-target mechanism of action in the treatment and prevention of cancer pathologies

In view of specific research activities of Net4Science, the scientific team of the spinoff started a focus campaign on bioactive components able to exert beneficial effects against complex diseases. The first review, published on the prestigious European Journal of Medicinal Chemistry, reports a focus on anti-cancer agents included in some popular ingredients of the Mediterranean Diet and endowed with multi-target mechanism of action, the scientific core business of Net4Science. This manuscript is supported also by the COST Action CA15135 and PRIN 2017 research project “Novel anticancer agents endowed with multi-targeting mechanism of action” (201744BN5T), in which several scientists of the spinoff are involved too. The review abstract is accessible at the link https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ejmech.2019.111579

Net4Science @ XXVI NMMC & XII NPCF, Milan July 16-19 2019

The National Meeting in Medicinal Chemistry and the Young Medicinal Chemistry Symposium are crucial appointments of the international scientific community working in the same field where Net4Science operates. So, after the successful MedChem2019 meeting carried out in June, the spinoff Net4Science decided to support this important event held in Milan from July 16th to 19th. Net4Science does it along with relevant industrial and SMEs working in the field of Medicinal Chemistry. Stefano Alcaro, promoter of the spinoff and scientific director of its activity will attend the whole meeting and moderate one session in the last day of the event. Net4Science with this support consolidates its presence in relevant Medicinal Chemistry meetings extending its cooperation network. Information about the meeting are available at the website https://nmmc2019.unimi.it/ 

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.
