Workshop 1: Nanobiomaterials and Nanomedicine

Next generation nanomedicine will rely on innovative nanomaterials capable of unprecedented performance. Therefore, the design and development of Nanobiomaterials should play a significant role in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of diseases in the early stage. The main objective of this Workshop is to give the opportunity to the specialists on Chemistry, Biology, Medicine, Engineering, Materials Science and Physics in the related fields of Nanotechnology, Nanomedicine and Nanosafety to inform the conference participants on the state-of-the-art on advanced nanobiomaterials and bioengineering for clinical and related healthcare applications.

The Workshop main topics include:
  • NanoBioMaterials
  • Nanomedicine
  • Drug Delivery
  • Biocompatibility
  • Nanotoxicity
  • Screening applications
  • Advanced Diagnostics and nanocharacterization
  • Bioengineering
  • Biofunctionality
  • Nanosafety
  • Clinical applications
  • Advanced healthcare nanobiomaterial
