Nanotechnology and Smart Materials for Medical Applications

From Medical Diagnostics to Therapy

Following on from the successful Nanotechnology and Smart Materials for Medical Devices conference in Edinburgh in December 2003, this second Nanoforum Conference, organized jointly by IoN and AIRI/Nanotec IT will be held in Rome on the 29th and 30th November 2004 at the Centro Congressi Frentani.

The Conference will highlight the potentialities of nanotechnology for human health care, with presentations from both the research community and industry. It will have an application oriented profile with particular attention to those applications close to the market.

The Conference will have the following themes:

-New Frontiers of Medical Diagnostics

Sensors (chip devices and wearable); internal diagnostics: molecular probes and machines; new systems and materials for imaging.

-Novel Pharmaceuticals and Therapies

New manufacturing methods; intelligent delivery systems; gene therapy; nano-bio robotics.

-Implants and Prostheses

Materials, surfaces modification and tissue engineering for improved biocompatibility and/or for biofunctionality; power systems for implants and prostheses.

-Effects of nanotechnology on medicine and the health care system (round table discussion)

Nanomedicine compared to current medicine and medical trends; regulatory problems; need for education and formation of trans-disciplinary health care teams; management of complex technological systems; social and ethical issues; barriers to commercialisation.

The conference will have oral presentations and dedicated poster sessions within these themes.

Please submit your abstract (between 250 and 400 words), stating your preference for an oral or poster presentation (please note that all participants giving oral presentations can also present a poster for further discussion) and which theme your research comes under. Abstracts should be submitted in MS Word format (Times New Roman 12 pt used throughout, with title in bold), listing all authors responsible for the work, all affiliated institutions and with the corresponding author and contact details clearly identified.

The deadline for abstract submission is 27th August 2004.
