Don’t miss out! We are preparing a wide variety of activities for those who decide to visit us.

N2B-Patch: Booth talk on an EU Funded MS research project

The N2B-patch (Nose to Brain Patch) research project aims to develop an innovative technology for MS treatment by creating a ‘nose to brain’ patch – a delivery system that could offer direct transport route of various drugs from the nasal cavity to the brain, bypassing the blood-brain barrier. Overcoming the blood brain barrier would potentially improve efficiency of drugs and the novel drug delivery system will ultimately offer people with MS an alternative to often uncomfortable and painful injections or the need of oral medicine.

Join Prof. Dr. med. Andrew Chan, member of the Scientific Consortium who will present N2B-patch in a dedicated session at the EMSP booth.

MS Nurse PROfessional is a European-focused, e-learning training curriculum for MS nurse specialists and nurses who work with or would like to work with people with MS. The online course is currently available in 11 different languages and has been endorsed or accredited in 15 countries.
