Public Debate: Nanomedicine… hype? Or a real revolution in healthcare?

Abstract:
Today, society is seeking ways of dealing with an ageing population, degenerative diseases such as cancer and arthritis, the problems of increased cardiovascular and other life style diseases such as diabetes. Alongside this is the need to eradicate malaria, tuberculosis and Aids, and other ‘plagues' of the 21st century. Other crises revolve around the shortage of transplants, the increasing manifestation of hereditary diseases and the problems of variable drug side-effects, where the ‘cure' for one person can pose life-threatening problems for another.


So what can nanotechnology offer medicine in the 21st Century? Is there a real possibility that this new science will lead to a change in the effectiveness of healthcare? Hear what our panel of experts have to say, and ask them about their views on solutions to some of the seemingly intractable problems of our age. The public engagement evening ‘Nanomedicine…hype? Or a real revolution in healthcare?' will take place on November 28, 2007 at the Royal College of Surgeons of London.
