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: Data use draining your battery? Tiny device to speed up memory while also saving power

The more objects we make "smart," from watches to entire buildings, the greater the need for these devices to store and retrieve massive amounts of data quickly without consuming too much power.

Millions of new memory cells could be part of a computer chip and provide that speed and energy savings, thanks to the discovery of a previously unobserved...

Im Focus: An energy-efficient way to stay warm: Sew high-tech heating patches to your clothes

Personal patches could reduce energy waste in buildings, Rutgers-led study says

What if, instead of turning up the thermostat, you could warm up with high-tech, flexible patches sewn into your clothes - while significantly reducing your...

Im Focus: Lethal combination: Drug cocktail turns off the juice to cancer cells

A widely used diabetes medication combined with an antihypertensive drug specifically inhibits tumor growth – this was discovered by researchers from the University of Basel’s Biozentrum two years ago. In a follow-up study, recently published in “Cell Reports”, the scientists report that this drug cocktail induces cancer cell death by switching off their energy supply.

The widely used anti-diabetes drug metformin not only reduces blood sugar but also has an anti-cancer effect. However, the metformin dose commonly used in the...

Im Focus: New Foldable Drone Flies through Narrow Holes in Rescue Missions

A research team from the University of Zurich has developed a new drone that can retract its propeller arms in flight and make itself small to fit through narrow gaps and holes. This is particularly useful when searching for victims of natural disasters.

Inspecting a damaged building after an earthquake or during a fire is exactly the kind of job that human rescuers would like drones to do for them. A flying...

Im Focus: Topological material switched off and on for the first time

Key advance for future topological transistors

Over the last decade, there has been much excitement about the discovery, recognised by the Nobel Prize in Physics only two years ago, that there are two types...
