EUROPA - Research and Innovation: What's New in Health and life sciences
Science Café with František Štěpánek is an unconventional open discussion with theme "Future of microscopic robots".
Prof. František Štěpánek is a recognized scientist in the field of chemical engineering. His research is focused on microscopic chemical robots that mimic single-cell organisms. One of the main drivers for the development of chemical robots is the area of oncology, and especially controlled and targeted delivery of chemotherapeutics to tumours, along with the related diagnostics and control.
Currently Prof. František Štěpánek leads the Chemical Robotics Laboratory at the University of Chemistry and Technology, Prague. In 2008, Prof. Štěpánek became the first ERC grantee in the Czech Republic.
Science Café is a forum for discussion of current work and interesting scientific issues. It aims to be informal and accessible. Anyone can participate; speaker is there to be questioned and to talk about his work.
This two-day awareness session for international regulators and non-governmental organisations (NGOs) will give an insight into how the European medicines regulatory network works, the role of European Medicines Agency (EMA), scientific aspects of EMA's work and its interaction with scientific experts.
It will address topics including the role of experts and benefit-risk evaluation. It will also provide networking opportunities with academics, NGOs staff and regulators from and outside the European Union.
The event will be broadcast live. EMA will publish further material after the event
