‘Nano medicine has immense potential’

Thiruvananthapuram: Nano medicine, especially the development of nano particle devices and targeted drug delivery, and new medical imaging technology will be two areas where the Sree Chitra Tirunal Institute for Medical Sciences and Technology (SCTIMST) can launch collaborative research projects with the Netherlands, K. Radhakrishnan, Director of the institute, has said.

Speaking on the sidelines of the Indo-Dutch workshops on “Medical Devices for Affordable Health and Life Sciences and Health,” organised jointly by the SCTIMST and the Department of Science and Technology (DST) which concluded here on Friday, Dr. Radhakrishnan said the development of nano particle devices for affordable health care and self-management of chronic diseases was an area which opened up immense possibilities for the future of medicine. Also, the Dutch expertise in sophisticated medical imaging technology could help in the development of new imaging devices which used integrated technologies for improved disease investigation, he said.
Giving his concluding remarks, Gerrit van Ark, Strategic Policy Officer, The Netherlands Organisation for Health Research and Development (Zon Mw), said the development of new medical devices for affordable and accessible health care would be a core area where both countries could become global partners.
