Evolvable platform for programmable nanoparticle-based cancer therapies

We are a consortium of seven partners with the shared goal of creating an entirely new nanoparticle design platform capable of autonomously evolving solutions for cancer treatment.

EVO-NANO brings together expertise in computer science, artificial evolution, modelling, microfluidics, and medicine.

Modelling

Build an evolutionary model to simulate all the main aspects of nanoparticle dynamics in the body and tumour environment.

Synthesis

Streamline synthesis of functionalised nanoparticles suggested by the evolutionary model.

Validation

Validate efficacy of artificially evolved nanoparticle designs using in vitro micro-fluidics and in vivo pre-clinical tests.

Launch Meeting

Great kick-off meeting, kindly hosted by our partners in Val d'Hebron, Barcelona. Perfect opportunity to share our recent research, discuss the next steps for our cancer simulator and try some of Barcelona's famous tapas.
