Nanotechnology: Solutions for the future of healthcare
(Nanowerk News) On March 4 - 6, 2009, international experts will gather in Berlin for the NanoMed 2009 conference to discuss the state of the art in medical applications of nanotechnology.
Medical and healthcare applications are 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 NanoMed 2009 - 6th International Conference on Biomedical Applications of Nanotechnology in the Great Lecture Hall of Berlin's Charité Hospital in March to discuss the current state in biomedical applications of nanotechnology. The event is organized by two of the leading German nanotechnology networks, cc-NanoChem e. V. and NanoBioNet e. V.
The program consists of more than 80 lectures and poster presentations by authors from 30 nations.
The scope of the conference covers the entire range of nanomedicine, including, among others, drug delivery, drug 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, and miniaturization of biochips. Due attention will be paid to the commercialization of nanomedical products and to potential risks and responsible use of nanomaterials.
The deadline for poster submissions has been extended till February 1.
