The EPTRI Open Meeting on April 2-3 April 2020, due to Covid-19 outbreak, was run online. In occasion of this event the Special Issue entitled “Scientific Highlights in the First European Paediatric Translational Research Infrastructure Open Meeting” has been created on Pharmaceutics, an Open Access journal. EPTRI Work package 8 co-Leader Nunzio Denora (University of Bari, member of CVBF) is the Guest Editor of the Special Issue. Any original research articles, reviews, opinion papers, editorials or short communications are welcome on the following topics related to EPTRI:

EPTRI (European Paediatric Translational Research Infrastructure) is an EU funded project coordinated by CVBF and aimed to design the framework for a new infrastructure dedicated to paediatric research that will work to accelerate a technology-driven paediatric medicines development processes from drug discovery and early development phases to be translated into clinical phases and medicines uses.
Before the meeting the launch of a call for abstracts was foreseen, giving to the researchers the possibility to express their interest to participate to EPTRI.
