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: The hidden structure of the periodic system

The well-known representation of chemical elements is just one example of how objects can be arranged and classified

The periodic table of elements that most chemistry books depict is only one special case. This tabular overview of the chemical elements, which goes back to...

Im Focus: MPSD team discovers light-induced ferroelectricity in strontium titanate

Light can be used not only to measure materials’ properties, but also to change them. Especially interesting are those cases in which the function of a material can be modified, such as its ability to conduct electricity or to store information in its magnetic state. A team led by Andrea Cavalleri from the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter in Hamburg used terahertz frequency light pulses to transform a non-ferroelectric material into a ferroelectric one.

Ferroelectricity is a state in which the constituent lattice “looks” in one specific direction, forming a macroscopic electrical polarisation. The ability to...

Im Focus: Determining the Earth’s gravity field more accurately than ever before

Researchers at TU Graz calculate the most accurate gravity field determination of the Earth using 1.16 billion satellite measurements. This yields valuable knowledge for climate research.

The Earth’s gravity fluctuates from place to place. Geodesists use this phenomenon to observe geodynamic and climatological processes. Using...

Im Focus: Tube anemone has the largest animal mitochondrial genome ever sequenced

Discovery by Brazilian and US researchers could change the classification of two species, which appear more akin to jellyfish than was thought.

The tube anemone Isarachnanthus nocturnus is only 15 cm long but has the largest mitochondrial genome of any animal sequenced to date, with 80,923 base pairs....

Im Focus: Tiny light box opens new doors into the nanoworld

Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, have discovered a completely new way of capturing, amplifying and linking light to matter at the nanolevel. Using a tiny box, built from stacked atomically thin material, they have succeeded in creating a type of feedback loop in which light and matter become one. The discovery, which was recently published in Nature Nanotechnology, opens up new possibilities in the world of nanophotonics.

Photonics is concerned with various means of using light. Fibre-optic communication is an example of photonics, as is the technology behind photodetectors and...
