Highlights of Economic and Business Growth in the Tampa Region

Abstract:
By 2020 it is projected there will be 16.5 million new cancer cases, 3.8 million in the United States, according to the World Health Organization. With such a global concern, researchers and the medical society are turning to the littlest details, sweating the smallest stuff and finding exceptional potential with nanotechnology. H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center & Research Institute, the University of South Florida College of Medicine and the USF Nanomaterials and Nanomanufacturing Research Center(NNRC) have been collaborating for several years to develop and apply
nanotechnology to treating cancer. On December 8, the collaboration will host the region's first conference on nanotechnology advances in disease detection and therapy. Open to the public, this conference will feature local and national experts in the field, including Dr. Robert Blumenthal
from the National Cancer Institute and Nanobiosym, Inc. Founder, Dr. Anita Goel. The program will begin at 8 a.m. at the Vincent A. Stabile Research building at Moffitt. (Contact Stephanie Medley, 813-974-8570,
