NanomMed 2009: 6th International Conference on Biomedical Applications of Nanotechnology

(Nanowerk News) Medical and healthcare applications are possibly the fastest growing branch of nanotechnology. Nearly o­n a daily basis new groundbreaking results from basic research are reported. Many nanomedical concepts have entered into the phase of clinical studies, and the first nanotechnology-based medical products have been approved by the regulatory authorities.
Experts from all over the world will gather for the 6th NanoMed conference from March 4-6, 2009 in Berlin to discuss the state of the art in biomedical applications of nanotechnology. The NanoMed conference series started in 1999 and has developed into o­ne of the European lead events in this field.
The scope of the conference covers the entire range of nanomedicine, including, among others,
  • drug delivery, targeting and controlled release
  • new concepts for cancer therapy
  • innovative dental materials
  • nanobioanalytics and diagnostic techniques
  • nanomaterials for implants and regenerative medicine
  • microbicidal coatings for sterility, general hygiene and drug packaging
  • novel contrast agents
  • miniaturization of biochips, and
  • bio-labelling with quantum dots
  • The NanoMed 2009 will put a special focus o­n nanomedical products that have already entered the market or are expected to do so in the near future. Therefore, strong emphasis will be put o­n issues like intellectual property, financing of nanotechnology enterprises, regulatory affairs, clinical studies, technology transfer, and strategic collaboration between academic research, R&D companies and the pharmaceutical industry.
    The event is organized by the leading German networks in chemical nanotechnology and nanobiotechnology, cc-NanoChem e. V. and NanoBioNet e. V.
