Area of interest: Red biotech

Type: Meeting/debate


The meeting will be  introduced by  a talk about the creation of a Palermo University Spin  off and innovative Start up, called Navhetec, in which natural molecules from citrus exosomes, with antitumoral properties are produced. The talk will be followed by short communications introduced by nine young researchers involved in the “Formazione per la nascita di uno spin off”  Regione Siciliana Project. Their proposal idea for a spin off creation will be exposed.
