An update from the NanoMedicines Innovation Network (NMIN):

On August 21, 2019, the Board of Directors approved NMIN’s initial investments of $4.3M in nanomedicines research. Over a two-year period, NMIN will support 20 innovative projects led by Canadian leaders in nanomedicine drug delivery, gene therapy and diagnostics.

These projects, hosted at six research centers across Canada, span a range of technologies (from neutrophil encapsulation to LNP systems) applied to a range of illnesses (from cancer to diabetes and eye disease)
