One-day course: What is nanomedicine?

The Institute of Nanotechnology (IoN) and Cranfield University are pleased to announce a one-day training course "What is nanomedicine?" to be held on Tuesday, November 27, 2007 from 10:00AM - 5:00PM at the Linnean Society of London, Burlington House, Piccadilly, London W1J 0BF.

Nanotechnology is defined as the "design, characterisation, production and application of structures, devices and systems by controlling shape and size at the nanoscale (having one or more dimensions of the order of 100 nm or less)". One of the most active and important current areas of research and application of nanotechnology is in the field of medicine. Many industry and business analysts now expect nanotechnology to revolutionise the pharmaceutical, medical devices, diagnostics and imaging sectors with annual markets of billions of pounds likely within five years.
