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.

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event
On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...
Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.
Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....
Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).
When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...
Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.
How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...
Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.
It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...
