ESF-UB Conference in Biomedicine

Nanomedicine: Reality Now and Soon

23-28 October 2010

Hotel Eden Roc, Sant Feliu de Guixols, Spain

Chaired by:
Professor Dr. Gert Storm, Utrecht University, The Netherlands

Organising Committee:
Dr. Manuel Fuentes, University of Salamanca, Spain
Professor Dr. Hans Oberleithner, University of Muenster, Germany
Professor Dr. Fernando Palacio, CSIC - University of Zaragoza, Spain
Professor Dr David Thomas, University of Cardiff, United Kingdom


The application of nanotechnology will have a major influence in many fields of medicine. Novel nano-based materials appear in drug delivery systems, diagnostics, imaging, biosensing, and medical materials and devices. This conference aims to provide detailed understanding and discuss the clinical utility of those areas of nanomedicine which are close to application or already clinically applied/on the market. Invited international experts active in nanomedicine development from industry, clinic and academia will give in-depth lectures on the state-of-the-art including a critical analysis of the likely impact on human healthcare. Spotlights will also be put on new possibilities arising in the near future.
