Nanotechnology and Regenerative Medicine

(Nanowerk News) A one-day course "Nanotechnology and Regenerative Medicine" will take place on May 7, 2009 in London, UK.
Learn how the ability to manipulate novel materials at the nanoscale combined with advances in cell biology will revolutionize the repair and replacement of tissues and help to address key healthcare challenges of today.
A one-day course covering the latest advances in tissue engineering, and cell and gene therapy. Hear about nanoscaffolds, cell growth stimulation, controlled vascularization and “advanced therapy medicinal products”
Topics to be covered will include:
  • the clinical challenges of a demographically changing society
  • core technologies relevant to tissue engineering & regeneration
  • highly functionalised new materials for use as scaffolds
  • engineering of soft, skeletal, vascular and nerve tissues
  • prospects and challenges for complex tissue and partial and whole organ regeneration
  • commercialisation: bringing regenerative medicine to market and clinic for the benefit of the patient
  • risks, ethical and regulatory aspects.
  • This course will be invaluable for clinicians interested in learning about novel regenerative medicine treatments, medical researchers, staff involved in innovation and technology transfer, healthcare administrators, regulators and others interested in how new and highly multidisciplinary technologies are converging in this rapidly developing area of medicine.
