The IMODE project is motivated by an unmet need for developing solutions to address societal challenges for improved healthcare, novel and effective medicines for various cardiovascular or digestive diseases, which have inadequate or lack of treatment while maintaining low medical costs
The challenging project goal is to integrate transdisciplinary applied research by involving academic research groups and enterprises to build upon and strenghten the creativity and innovation in order to create a strategic advantage for innovative pharmaceutical and medical applications within 2 Seas area.
IMODE is based on a cross-border cooperation.
The challenging objectives of the project are highly multidisciplinary in nature (material science, chemistry, biology, pharmacy, medicine). The IMODE partnership offers an effective approach to the development of innovative pharmaceutical technologies and medical devices.
This strong and unique partnership in the field has already been validated by the development of the AMPTEC, technological platform combining highly interdisciplinary knowhow and cutting edge equipment.
The IMODE project is divided in two main scientifical workpackages.
The aim is to apply holistic approach for the development of drug eluting stents for the treatment of coronary artery diseases (DES). The activities involve the development of personalized DES, which can be adopted for the needs of each patient individually.
