The 8th NanoBio-Europe conference will be conducted from June 18 to June 20, 2012, in Varese, Italy.
The conference will display new nanobiotechnology developments and provide a stage for experts from clinical, industrial and academic backgrounds to share ideas and establish new partnerships. Over 250 researchers and scientists involved in the nanobiotechnology field are expected to participate in the event.
Nanobiotechnology is a multidisciplinary field that requires expertise from all engineering and scientific fields, as well as relevant clinical experience. This most challenging research field holds potential for developments through the integration of expertise in medicine, biology, electronics, photonics, and materials, together with application-driven and technology-driven methods.
The NanoBio-Europe Conference’s main focus is on nanobiotechnology applications in biological and medical fields, wherein nanotechnology-enabled systems and devices can lay the foundation for superior and more reachable healthcare and testing solutions to provide enhanced results for the citizen.
Nanobiotechnology experts from across the world will discuss the latest advancements and their ideas in the event. Italy-based internationally recognized nanobiotechnology experts will also deliver keynote presentations in a special session.
Fondazione Don Gnocchi and the Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the European Commission organize the conference. Fondazione Don Carlo Gnocchi ONLUS is a consortium of 28 not-for-profit research hospitals dedicated to rehabilitation. It also features a Biomedical Technology Department that performs research in the nanomedicine and bioengineering fields.
The JRC has a strong research expertise in the nanotechnology and nano biotechnology fields. At the JRC, multinational, multidisciplinary teams carry out research in biodetection and biosensing devices and systems, protein surface interactions, bio/non-bio interfaces, and toxicity of nanomaterials.
