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: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...

Im Focus: Using graphene to create quantum bits

In the race to produce a quantum computer, a number of projects are seeking a way to create quantum bits -- or qubits -- that are stable, meaning they are not much affected by changes in their environment. This normally needs highly nonlinear non-dissipative elements capable of functioning at very low temperatures.

In pursuit of this goal, researchers at EPFL's Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurements LPQM (STI/SB), have investigated a nonlinear graphene-based...

Im Focus: Hydrogen Bonds Directly Detected for the First Time

For the first time, scientists have succeeded in studying the strength of hydrogen bonds in a single molecule using an atomic force microscope. Researchers from the University of Basel’s Swiss Nanoscience Institute network have reported the results in the journal Science Advances.

Hydrogen is the most common element in the universe and is an integral part of almost all organic compounds. Molecules and sections of macromolecules are...
