European Science Foundation conference on nanomedicine
4 May 2010
The European Science Foundation is holding a conference with
the theme: Nanomedicine: Reality Now and Soon on 23-28 October
2010 at Sant Feliu de Guixols, Spain.
The application of nanotechnology will have a major influence in
many fields of medicine. Novel nano-based materials appear in drug
delivery systems, diagnostics, imaging, biosensing, and medical
materials and devices.
This conference aims to provide detailed understanding and discuss
the clinical utility of those areas of nanomedicine which are close
to application or already clinically applied/on the market.
Invited international experts active in nanomedicine development
from industry, clinic and academia will give in-depth lectures on
the state-of-the-art including a critical analysis of the likely
impact on human healthcare. Spotlights will also be put on new
possibilities arising in the near future.
Sessions will include: Advanced Nanomaterials; Nanobioanalytics &
Nanotoxicology; Nanopharmaceuticals on the Market; Interactions with
the Biological Milieu; Nanoimaging; Ligand-Mediated Targeting;
Nanopharmaceuticals in Clinical Development; Targeted Nanomedicine &
EC; Intracellular Delivery of Macromolecules; Tissue Repair.
- lectures by invited high level speakers;
- short talks by young & early stage researchers;
- poster sessions, round table and open discussion periods;
- forward look panel discussion about future developments.
