As research in nanoscale science progresses, its value within healthcare applications increases. This two-day conference will bring together international speakers and delegates to discuss the value and significance of these rapid progressions and the implications of nanoscale technologies in clinical applications. The conference aims to:
· Introduce and define nanomedicine
· Share experience by examples of the science in action
· Create a forum for collaborative research
· Showcase current scientific advancements in nanomedicine
· Give guidance on commercial exploitation
The 2006 conference will highlight clinical needs in an ageing population and will have a technological focus on nano-scale imaging techniques. There will also be a call for contributed papers.
All stakeholders in healthcare who are interested in the future development of nanomedicine will find this conference to be highly useful and informative. This will include clinicians and non-clinical scientists from medical and physical science backgrounds as well as those with commercial interests in this area.
Programme & Themes
This conference is a combination of plenary and panel discussions, and over the two days will cover the following themes:
· Technology and an ageing population
· Imaging & diagnosis
· Commercialisation of new technologies – Sponsored by Cels
· Nanoscience and nanotechnologies for medical applications – Free paper session
· Nano for the common good: Ethical lessons from citizens
· Nanotechnology for the Healthcare Market – Organised by Cenamps
· Examples of nano- and micro-technology products in the marketplace – Nanotechnology Industries Association
· Angels’ Den – 3 early stage business ideas pitched to a panel
The programme committee will launch an innovative new idea for an interactive session at this year’s conference. It is called the Angels’ Den and will be a friendlier form of the BBC’s highly successful programme, Dragons’ Den.
We are looking for 3 or 4 presenters to pitch their early stage business idea to a panel of experts within the business development, start up businesses and technology investors fields.
