Conference: 21st Century Medicine: Breakthroughs and Challenges
(Nanowerk News) The Institute of Nanotechnology in the UK is organizing a conference "21st Century Medicine: Breakthroughs and Challenges" being held on November 26-27, 2008 at The Royal Institute of British Architects, London.
Some of the most exciting research in the
world is being undertaken in the field of
medicine. Many challenges exist in
identifying disease at the earliest possible
stage and preventing and treating cancer,
congenital, degenerative and infectious
diseases – and increasingly, lifestyleinduced
diseases such as diabetes.
Even greater challenges exist in bringing
affordable, safe medicines to a wide
population, and in enabling the elderly to
remain active and maintain their faculties
for as long as possible.
Hear what international experts think the
greatest medical challenges are, and
how they can be met using the new
technologies to unravel the secrets of
illness and create the means whereby
we can all live longer, healthier lives.
