Biology is increasingly asking quantitative questions. Quantification is essential if we are to understand how the cell works, and details of its regulation. The physical sciences provide tools and strategies to obtain accurate measurements and simulate the information to allow to comprehend the processes. The development of computational modeling and informatics software will enable scientists and engineers to apply nanotechnology to key areas of medical research, including diagnostics, biosensing, drug delivery and biomaterial design.
The aim of this workshop is to set the discussion between biologists, physicists, computer scientists and engineers, traditionally divided groups, and bridge the gap between materials science and life science. The scientific program will consist of oral, poster and position presentations.
This event will bring together leading scientists, representatives of industry, public research and governmental bodies and will provide the international forum for exchange of information and expertise in the area of Nanobiotechnology.
