nanoBAT: Enhanced brown adipose tissue activity using nanotechnology approaches.
The activation of brown adipose tissue (BAT) using nanotechnology approaches has been largely ignored thus far. The nanoBAT project will create a sustainable innovation platform of intersectoral collaboration between two academic and three industrial European participants to advance the concept of nanostructured delivery-L-menthol system for brown adipose tissue activation.
The project’s overall objective will be achieved by accomplishing a series of clear and measurable research and innovation objectives (termed “specific objectives”). In turn, these specific objectives will be realized via staff exchanges of experienced researchers as well as early-stage researchers divided into:
(i) networking activities, (ii) research and training activities, (iii) workshop activities, (iv) innovation activities, (v) dissemination and outreach activities.
Implementing a well-planned and effective series of intersectoral exchanges will provide unique
opportunities for the project participants and their staff members to gain new skills/techniques/protocols and career perspectives.
Indeed, the multidisciplinary character of the project will allow staff to obtain new technical capabilities ranging from chemistry, nano-materials, toxicology, pharmacology, molecular biology, business, project management, marketing, product implementation and commercialization.
