PROJECTS UNDER IMPLEMENTATION
In June, 2016 SIA LabochemLV started implementation of 2 industrial research projects under the scope project “Competence Centre of Pharmacy, Biomedicine and medicine technologies” (No.22.214.171.124./16/A/006).
Competence Centre of Pharmacy, Biomedicine and Medicine Technologies covers two scientific directions:
- Pharmacy, original drugs and generics – research on active pharmaceutical ingredients for development of new generics, evaluation of specific substances
- Drugs of natural substances, food supplements, functional cosmetics – to develop new cosmetic products in line with trends of cosmetic industry.
Objective of the project “Competence Centre of Pharmacy, Biomedicine and Medicine Technologies” is to support at least 13 research works in line with the defined scientific directions by the development of new products and technologies of the relevant sector and their implementation into production, thereby promoting cooperation between scientific research area and industry as well as increasing business competitiveness of the branch. Implementation period of the overall project “Competence Centre of Pharmacy, Biomedicine and Medicine Technologies” is 01.06.2016.– 31.12.2018.
Overall amount of EU funding for the project “Competence Centre of Pharmacy, Biomedicine and Medicine Technologies” makes 3 206 250 EUR.
- In January, 2017 SIA LabochemLV within the project “Competence Centre of Pharmacy, Biomedicine and Medicine Technologies” started industrial research project “Research of Levosimendane synthesis technology”. Project implementation period 01.01.2017 – 30.08.2018. In July 2018 project is in the final phase, experimental works are completed, data processing, development of registration documentation as well as preparation of final report is ongoing.
- In May,2018 SIA Labochem in cooperation with Rīga Stradiņš University (RSU) within the scope of “Competence Centre of Pharmacy, Biomedicine and Medicine Technologies” initiated another project “Development of 177Lu-PSMA, 68Ga-PSMA, 18F-PSMA production technology and analytical methods”
During the period 01.05.2018 – 30.07.2018 SIA LabochemLV in cooperation with RSU the information about the needed reagents and raw materials within the project was summarised, technical specifications for the first raw materials prepared, price comparison procedure performed and contract drafted. Performed also literature research and initiated first activities on development of analytical methods required for characterization of intermediate and final products.
