A German-Israeli symposium on nanomedicine

(Nanowerk News) Internationally recognized experts will present recent achievements in molecular diagnostics based on nanotechnological tools. These principles will open the door to personal diagnosis and therapy but also to bio-electronic circuitry.
A transdisciplinary audience is invited to discuss the perspectives of this fascinating field.
