Alongside this is the need to eradicate malaria, tuberculosis and Aids, and other ‘plagues’ of the 21st century. Other crises revolve around the shortage of transplants, the increasing manifestation of hereditary diseases and the problems of variable drug side-effects, where the ‘cure’ for one person can pose life-threatening problems for another
So what can nanotechnology offer medicine in the 21st Century? Is there a real possibility that this new science will lead to a change in the effectiveness of healthcare? Hear what our panel of experts have to say, and ask them about their views on solutions to some of the seemingly intractable problems of our age. The public engagement evening ‘Nanomedicine…hype? Or a real revolution in healthcare?’ will take place on the 28th of November at the Royal College of Surgeons of London.
Chaired by Geoff Watts, eminent writer and broadcaster on science and medicine and currently the presenter of the BBC Radio 4 ‘Leading Edge’ programme, the discussion will be led by Dr. Doug Naysmith, MP, Bristol North West, Dr. Leonard Fass, Director of Academic Relations, GE Healthcare, Mr. Michael Lussier, General Manager, Volcano Corporation, Dr. Evdokia Korakianiti, Scientific Administrator, Pre-Authorisation Unit for Human Medicines , European Medicines Agency (EMEA),Clinical Sub-Dean, Leeds University Medical School and Dr. Marisa Papaluca Amati, Deputy Head of Sector, European Medicines Agency (EMEA)
In the interest of openness and public engagement this panel discussion and public debate, which will be held at the Royal College of Surgeons from 18h00 – 20h00 on 28 November 2007, is open to all and is free. Places are limited and, therefore, early registration is recommended. For more information and registration, visit: http://www.nano.org.uk/events/ionevents.htm or contact Tiju Joseph, firstname.lastname@example.org, 0141 330 8734.
The event is organised by the Institute of Nantoechnology in conjunction with the ‘Investing in Medical Nanotechnologies II’, conference and exhibition to be held at the Royal College of Surgeons on the 28th and 29th November 2007 – http://nanomednet.org/conference07

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.
But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...
Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.
The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...
Theoretical physicists propose to use negative interference to control heat flow in quantum devices. Study published in Physical Review Letters
Quantum computer parts are sensitive and need to be cooled to very low temperatures. Their tiny size makes them particularly susceptible to a temperature...
Let’s say the armrest is broken in your vintage car. As things stand, you would need a lot of luck and persistence to find the right spare part. But in the world of Industrie 4.0 and production with batch sizes of one, you can simply scan the armrest and print it out. This is made possible by the first ever 3D scanner capable of working autonomously and in real time. The autonomous scanning system will be on display at the Hannover Messe Preview on February 6 and at the Hannover Messe proper from April 23 to 27, 2018 (Hall 6, Booth A30).
Part of the charm of vintage cars is that they stopped making them long ago, so it is special when you do see one out on the roads. If something breaks or...
