Just wanted to spread the word about this upcoming July 28-Aug 1, 2014 “Workshop for Micro- and Nanotechnologies for Medicine: Emerging Frontiers and Applications” organized by Ali Khademhosseini, Mehmet Dokmeci, and Nasim Annabi in Boston. Speaker line-up is fantastic and speaks for itself. Click here for more info!
We are pleased to announce the Workshop for Micro- and Nanotechnologies for Medicine: Emerging Frontiers and Applications, to be held this summer. The advances in micro- and nanotechnologies are expected to open up new possibilities and applications in diagnostics, therapeutic drug delivery and regenerative medicine I this workshops participants will acquire both the fundamental and advanced knowledge in the field of bioMEMS, biomaterials and tissue engineering. Leading experts will present the latest advances i the development of novel micro- and nanotechnologies and address a range of different challenges that are of importance to biomedicine at the interface of engineering, medicine and biological sciences.
The areas covered during the workshop:
1. Microfluidics 2. Biomaterials 3. Stem cells 4. Drug Delivery 5. BioMEMS and Biosensing 6. Tissue Engineering 7. Nanotechnology 8. Professional development/translation to products
