Challenges in Nanotechnology Approach to Immunology Presented at TM World Conference

Nano Labs Corp. is pleased to report that Dr. Victor Castano, Chief Innovations Officer of Nano Labs, presented "A nanotechnology approach to immunology: challenges and opportunities." at the Target Meeting ("TM") 2nd World Immunology Online Conference.

The TM 2nd World Immunology Online Conference, held March 19-21, 2013, included sixty (60) international speakers over the three (3) day conference, providing speakers and attendees with in-depth discussion, collaboration and networking.

Dr. Castano's presentation included a historical review of how nanostructures, both natural and man-made, have played important roles in immunology, emphasizing the challenges and advantages that are present through novel nanoscale approaches.

Dr. Castano further presented a number of Nano Labs' projects currently underway, including using state-of-the art technologies, such as MEMS and NEMS, for immunological applications, discussing the potential limitations and challenges that such techniques pose for the practicing immunologists.
