We are very pleased to inform you that the 8th edition of MATWIN’s international board has awarded PDC*line Pharma with the prize of most promising project in the “start-up” category.


This prize confirms the value of our project and development plan. The International Board of MATWIN meets once a year to audition the best selected projects in oncology, to make recommendations and to label those that it considers with the greatest potential for development. This Board brings together academic Key Opinion Leaders in oncology from the largest research institutes in Europe and international leaders of R & D Oncology departments from pharmaceutical companies. For the first time this year, MATWIN also invited two representatives of venture capital funds (Kurma Partners and Sofinnova Partners) to participate in its Board.
