MEDICIS-Promed: from fundamental research to hospitals

Created in 2015, the MEDICIS-Promed* (“MEDICIS-produced radioisotope beams for medicine”) project is an innovating training network. This truly European network is part of the European Union framework programme dedicated to research and innovation: 2020 horizon. Take a look back to an European project at the service of nuclear medicine!

The aim of the MEDICIS-Promed project, managed by the CERN (European Council for Nuclear Research) is to train a new generation of 15 entrepreneur scientists in the fields of the production and use of innovating radioisotopes. MEDICIS-Promed therefore associates the university, industrial and hospital domains with research institutes to solve issues related to the production, transport, manufacture and injection in patients of new radiolabeled compounds for vector imaging and cancer therapy. Lemer Pax contributed to this project by providing all its expertise in the transport of radioactive materials. The company supervised an Italian physics PhD student – Maddalena Maietta – with the design of a new type B container intended for the transport of large activities of raw materials for pharmaceutical use.

*The MEDICIS-Promed project is funded by the European Commission under its Horizon 2020 programme. (Contract 642889)
