The ves4us project is an European initiative funded by the Horizon2020 Program of the European Commission under Future Emerging Technologies (FET) call. Its main objective aims at generating a broad range of radically new high-value products in the fields of nutrition, cosmetics and health sciences based on natural source-derived extracellular vesicles (EVs), which could be used as new generation vehicles for specific molecular delivery.
VES4US Consortium is made by 5 CNR institutes: IBIM (coordinator), IBF, IBBR, IEOS, IGB; and 5 European partner:: Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research (Germany, ETH Zurich (Switzerland), Institute of Technology Sligo (Ireland), University of Ljubljani (Slovenia), Zabala Innovation Consulting (Spain).
Within the project Consortium the team at the Institute of Biophysics is specifically focused on the biophysical characterization of vesicles.
