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.
