Background
Our Goal
Consortium

THE BREATHING HEART

1. Nanoparticle production
Biocompatible and biodegradable nanoparticles can self-assemble and encapsulate drugs
2. Inhalation
Nanoparticles are transformed into an inhalable coarser dry powder that can reach the airways.
3. Crossing the pulmonary barrier
Nanoparticles can cross the alveolar-capillary barrier, rapidly reaching the heart
4. One target: the heart
The heart specificity is ensured thanks to chemical and magnetic guidance

A multidisciplinary team

CUPIDO multidisciplinary consortium gathers a heterogeneous array of expertise and pulls together cutting-edge research with pre-clinical experience and industrial manufacturing. Indeed the 12 CUPIDO partners can cover the complete chain that brings an idea into a feasible product and cover expertise in:

  • cardiovascular and nanotechnology research
  • bioengineering and molecular imaging
  • pulmonology and lung cell biology
  • in silico computational models
  • wearable electronics
  • drug delivery solutions
  • pharmaceutical products.
