Nanotechnology for the Healthcare System of the 21st Century

23.07.2008
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 2009 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 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, 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 potential risks and the responsible use of nanomaterials.

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.

At the NanoMed Industrial Exhibition, companies, research institutes and networks will present their products and services.

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...
