Biological barriers within the human body are a pivotal prerequisite for life.
On the other hand, these barriers such as epithelia, endothelia and cell membranes also represent a significant obstacle. Thus, the efficient and safe delivery of a drug from the site of administration to the site of action can often be considered a relevant scientific and technological challenge.
1. Overcoming Biological Barriers: Molecular, Biological and Mechanistic Issues

4. Scale-up, Translational and Regulatory Issues of Drug Delivery Systems
The selection of the presentations (orals and posters) will be based on the review of 1-page abstracts (incl. figures) by the Scientific Committee.
Please use our English Abstract Template, because English will be the Congress language. The abstracts should explicitly mention objectives, new results, and conclusions or significance of the work. Abstracts should be submitted via file upload untill 1 June 2015 at:
