ConferenceMonday, August 22, 2016 (All day) to Thursday, August 25, 2016 (All day)Sendai, Japan http://ieeenano2016.org/index.html IEEE Nano is one of the largest nanotechnology conferences in the world, directly hosted by the IEEE Nanotechnology Council. It is a must for students, educators, researchers, scientists and engineers engaged in a wide range of nanotechnology fields and related applications, including electronic materials, photonics, biotechnology, medicine, alternative energy, environment and electronic devices. Since its first round on Maui Island, Hawaii, in 2001, IEEE Nano has been held annually in rotation between North America, Europe, and the Asia Pacific region. This is the 16th edition of the flagship annual event to be held in Sendai, and the second in Japan some 11 years since it first took place in Nagoya in 2005.
ConferenceSunday, July 3, 2016 (All day) to Friday, July 8, 2016 (All day)Herrnstein, Austria http://www.engconf.org/conferences/biotechnology/nanotechnology-in-medicine-from-molecules-to-humans/ Nanotechnology is prominent in medicine for various applications that span use in understanding cellular and molecular interactions to the downstream development of technologies for disease characterization, detection and treatment. A few examples include systemically injectable nanoparticles for the targeted delivery of multiple therapeutic and contrast agents; multi-scale hierarchically-complex implants for the regeneration of bone and soft tissues; micro/nano-fluidic chips resembling the authentic architecture and biology of real organs. Despite the high promise of nanotechnology, only a few of these technologies generated have made it to clinical utility. It is likely that the limited translation of nanotechnology-based interventions to date is also due to the lack of mechanistic understanding of cellular and molecular interactions of these technologies owing to the complexity of biological systems in health and diseases. We envision the ECI Nanotechnology in Medicine conference to provide a platform to aid in the mechanistic understanding of cellular and molecular interactions/responses induced by nanotechnologies and the exploitation of these understandings to generate highly effective nanotechnologies for the early detection, imaging and treatment of human diseases. The conference will bring together biologists, materials scientists, physicists, engineers and clinical scientists. Session Topics (as currently envisioned) Nano/microparticles for diagnostics and therapeutics Nano/microtechnology for study of cellular and molecular dynamics Nanotechnology and translational medicine Nanotechnology and biopolymer for regenerative medicine Nanostructures for cell adhesion, growth, motility, and differentiation Nanoscale interactions for cell, tissue and organ
