Many of these advances will offer vastly improved outcomes for patients, therapies for hitherto difficult-to-treat diseases or conditions, improved manufacturing efficiency, or better use of valuable medical professional resources. According to experts, some 130 new nanotechnology-based drugs and delivery systems were already under development in 2006.
The Institute of Nanotechnology, global leaders in nanotechnology information services, is organising its second annual nanomedicine conference and exhibition ‘Investing in Medical Nanotechnology II’, which will showcase the latest developments in nanomedicine and potential routes to financing. The two day event will see leading multinational companies such as Philips, AstraZeneca, GE Healthcare, GlaxoSmithKline, Volcano Corporation and Fresenius Medical Care sharing their vision on the impacts of nanomedicine on healthcare and providing a window on their activities in the area. The conference will also see top industry figures offering their views on how to manage ‘risks and uncertainties’ as well as the challenges in integrating nanomedicine into established pharmaceutical and medical device business models.
The Head of ‘Nanosciences and Nanotechnologies’ unit at The European Commission will outline the EC’s nanomedicine plan and how some of the €800million dedicated under FP7 will be targeted towards new nanotechnology-based treatments. The Wellcome Trust will present details about their funding priorities and new technology transfer initiatives, and the chairman of the US-based Aesis Research Group will discuss new business models, financing and valuation in medical nanotechnology and suggest ideas for building value.
The event will also see a number of innovative small companies present novel nanomedical technologies and presentations from top scientists from as far away as India and Malaysia. The associated exhibition will showcase new innovations in nanomedicine and will provide a unique opportunity to network with potential partners.
Investing in Medical Nanotechnology II builds upon the success of the inaugural event held last year to bring the latest developments in the exciting and dynamic new field of nanomedicine. The event is sponsored by Marks & Clerk, MTI Partners and Tinytech Jobs and will take place on 28-29 November at the historic and prestigious Royal College of Surgeons in London.

Physicists have developed a technique based on optical microscopy that can be used to create images of atoms on the nanoscale. In particular, the new method allows the imaging of quantum dots in a semiconductor chip. Together with colleagues from the University of Bochum, scientists from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute reported the findings in the journal Nature Photonics.
Microscopes allow us to see structures that are otherwise invisible to the human eye. However, conventional optical microscopes cannot be used to image...
On the way to an intelligent laboratory, physicists from Innsbruck and Vienna present an artificial agent that autonomously designs quantum experiments. In initial experiments, the system has independently (re)discovered experimental techniques that are nowadays standard in modern quantum optical laboratories. This shows how machines could play a more creative role in research in the future.
We carry smartphones in our pockets, the streets are dotted with semi-autonomous cars, but in the research laboratory experiments are still being designed by...
What enables electrons to be transferred swiftly, for example during photosynthesis? An interdisciplinary team of researchers has worked out the details of how...
For the first time, scientists have precisely measured the effective electrical charge of a single molecule in solution. This fundamental insight of an SNSF Professor could also pave the way for future medical diagnostics.
Electrical charge is one of the key properties that allows molecules to interact. Life itself depends on this phenomenon: many biological processes involve...
At the JEC World Composite Show in Paris in March 2018, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be focusing on the latest trends and innovations in laser machining of composites. Among other things, researchers at the booth shared with the Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) will demonstrate how lasers can be used for joining, structuring, cutting and drilling composite materials.
No other industry has attracted as much public attention to composite materials as the automotive industry, which along with the aerospace industry is a driver...
