Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a rare, not curable, chronic lung disease. The INAT project aims to develop a novel nanomedicine, to be delivered locally and non-invasively via aerosols into the lungs to improve its therapeutic index (high efficacy, low side effects). This nanomedicine combines an innovative nanoparticle, which is biodegradable and highly effective, and an oligonucleotide to target a profibrosis mediator. The nanomedicine will be formulated for inhalation in humans and its toxicity and efficacy tested pre-clinically. The INAT consortium synergistically combines the efforts of 3 academic labs with complementary expertise in aerosolized medicine and 2 industry partners, whose platform technologies will be merged. This will allow to develop a novel nanomedicine for inhalation in humans and to achieve its robust preclinical evaluation for the treatment of IPF.

This 3-year project is funded by the European Commission Horizon 2020 under the EuroNanoMed III call (http://euronanomed.net/funded-projects/). It is coordinated by Dr. Nathalie Heuzé-Vourc’h of the University of Tours (France) and performed in collaboration with Dr. Otmar Schmid of the German Research Center for Environmental Health, Gilles Divita of DIV’INCELL (France) and Jonas Renz of Secarna Pharmaceuticals (Germany). You will receive a 12 month postdoctoral fellowship with a net allocation ranging from 2 490€ to 2 600€ per month, according to your seniority. The contract will start July 2nd2019 and will be renewable once for a total of 24 months.
