Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships

Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships (IF) actions, in Horizon2020, support innovative research projects proposed by individual researchers  holding a Ph.D. or having four years of full-time equivalent research experience. The actions are aimed at fostering excellent training paths and researchers career development through projects which include international, interdisciplinary and intersectoral mobility.

The Research Support Department of Politecnico di Torino supports researchers willing to submit applications for Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships. Contact europoli@polito.it for more information.

  • Nanoparticles for pancreatic cancer treatment

    Delivering drugs to the tumor site is difficult, in the case of pancreatic tumors, because of the abundant presence of fibrotic tissues. The project  aims to develop tumor targeted nanocrystals coated by a biomimetic layer with enhanced drug delivery capability. The nanocrystals will be able to disturb the tumor microenvironment and also to provide contrast enhancement for treatment monitoring.
