4th European Joint Conference for Nanomedicine brings together the Nanomedicine community

11.05.2011
The major European event in the path-breaking field of Nanomedicine is the 4th European Conference for Clinical Nanomedicine taking place from May 23 to May 25, 2011 in Basel, Switzerland.
The conference focuses on the clinical application of novel developments in nanosciences and is organised by the CLINAM Foundation, in collaboration with the ETP Nanomedicine. It also includes industrial topics, opinions and recommendations from regulatory authorities as well as discussion panels on ethical questions and the wider societal implications.

Joint work with Nanomedicine institutional stakeholders

The non-profit organisation CLINAM Foundation is the leading partner organising this major conference on Nanomedicine in Europe and works in collaboration with the European Technology Platform on Nanomedicine (ETPN) and the European Medicines Agency (EMA). Further partners are the European Society for Nanomedicine (ESNAM) and the European Science Foundation (ESF).

ETPN’s focus on generating European projects and translational issues

The ETP Nanomedicine contributes to CLINAM 2011 by organising 3 of 23 sessions held during the conference. The emphasis is on European Policy and funding, industrial challenges and projects’ proposals for joint collaborative research:

- Strategic Vision, Future Joint Research and Translation of Results, Needs for Policy Initiatives for the Benefit of the Patient (24th May 2011 – 11:15)

- Industrial Perspectives of Nanomedicine 2011 – 2020: Round table with six representatives from academia and industry (24th May 2011 – 12:00)

- ETPN Flash Proposals Session: Presentation of ideas for collaborative research projects (25th May 2011 – 10:45)

About the European Technology Platform on Nanomedicine - ETPN

The ETPN was established in 2005 as a joint venture of the European Commission, large industrial companies, SMEs and academic research institutions to investigate and advance joint activities in the area of medical nanotechnology. The ETPN contributed to the set up of numerous European-funded projects. The aim is to reach an efficient translation of R&D results into innovative products and to set the dialog with European legislation and regulations authorities. The ETPN supports its members with the coordination of their joint research efforts and the improvement of communication between the European Commission and the European Member States.

Im Focus: First-of-its-kind chemical oscillator offers new level of molecular control

DNA molecules that follow specific instructions could offer more precise molecular control of synthetic chemical systems, a discovery that opens the door for engineers to create molecular machines with new and complex behaviors.

Researchers have created chemical amplifiers and a chemical oscillator using a systematic method that has the potential to embed sophisticated circuit...

Im Focus: Long-lived storage of a photonic qubit for worldwide teleportation

MPQ scientists achieve long storage times for photonic quantum bits which break the lower bound for direct teleportation in a global quantum network.

Concerning the development of quantum memories for the realization of global quantum networks, scientists of the Quantum Dynamics Division led by Professor...

Im Focus: Electromagnetic water cloak eliminates drag and wake

Detailed calculations show water cloaks are feasible with today's technology

Researchers have developed a water cloaking concept based on electromagnetic forces that could eliminate an object's wake, greatly reducing its drag while...

Im Focus: Scientists channel graphene to understand filtration and ion transport into cells

Tiny pores at a cell's entryway act as miniature bouncers, letting in some electrically charged atoms--ions--but blocking others. Operating as exquisitely sensitive filters, these "ion channels" play a critical role in biological functions such as muscle contraction and the firing of brain cells.

To rapidly transport the right ions through the cell membrane, the tiny channels rely on a complex interplay between the ions and surrounding molecules,...

Im Focus: Towards data storage at the single molecule level

The miniaturization of the current technology of storage media is hindered by fundamental limits of quantum mechanics. A new approach consists in using so-called spin-crossover molecules as the smallest possible storage unit. Similar to normal hard drives, these special molecules can save information via their magnetic state. A research team from Kiel University has now managed to successfully place a new class of spin-crossover molecules onto a surface and to improve the molecule’s storage capacity. The storage density of conventional hard drives could therefore theoretically be increased by more than one hundred fold. The study has been published in the scientific journal Nano Letters.

Over the past few years, the building blocks of storage media have gotten ever smaller. But further miniaturization of the current technology is hindered by...
