Our story starts in 2001 when we founded Nanovector, in time when discipline of Nanomedicine was just beginning to take its first steps.
The great inspiration was professor Maria Rosa Gasco who invented and patented in 1991 an original method for producing solid lipid nanoparticles by cooling of warm microemulsion. She was working with her team in University of Torino and was one of founder of Nanovector.
Maria Rosa filed her original patent few weeks before its colleague in Berlin, estimated Prof. RH Mueller, filed his own patent on method to obtain Solid lipid nanoparticles by high pressure homogenization: an incredible contemporary origin in Europe for this new drug delivery system.
Since then the SLN have been tested worldwide by many other groups and novel methods have been discovered.
