Abstract:
The Institute of Nanotechnology, global leader in nanotechnology information services, is organising its second annual nanomedicine conference and exhibition which will showcase the latest developments in medical nanotechnologies and potential routes to finance. The two day event will see leading multinational companies, such as Philips, AstraZeneca, GE Healthcare, GlaxoSmithKline, Volcano Corporation and Fresenius Medical Care, sharing their vision of the impacts of nanomedicine on healthcare and providing a window on their activities.

Nanomedicine conference to discuss the changing practice of healthcare and challenges in integrating nanotech into established business models

London, UK | Posted on November 20th, 2007

Key discussions will be on the changing practice of healthcare, challenges in integrating nanomedicine into established business models, managing ‘risks and uncertainties' , the role of public-private partnerships in building value, requirements for better regulation and standardisation as well as the barriers to the clinic. The conference will also have three main technology sessions, 'Drug Delivery and Pharmaceutical Development', ‘Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine' and 'Novel Devices, Nanosensors, Diagnostics and Imaging'.

The Head of ‘Nanosciences and Nanotechnologies' unit at The European Commission will outline the EC's nanomedicine plan and how some of the €800million dedicated under FP7 will be targeted towards new nanotechnology-based treatments. The Wellcome Trust will present details about their funding priorities and new technology transfer initiatives and EMEA will summarise their views on regulatory hurdles. The conference will also see a number of innovative small companies' presenting novel nanomedical technologies and presentations from top scientists as far away as India and Malaysia. The associated exhibition will showcase new innovations in nanomedicine and provide a unique opportunity to network with potential partners.

Investing in Medical Nanotechnology II builds upon the success of the inaugural event held last year to bring the latest developments in the exciting and dynamic new field of nanomedicine. The event sponsored by Marks & Clerk, MTI Partners and Tinytech Jobs will take place on 28-29 November at the historic and prestigious Royal College of Surgeons in London.
