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.
