Public Debate: Nanomedicine… hype? Or a real revolution in healthcare?
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)
