World BioPharm Forum 2007: New Frontiers in Nanomedicine  in London, Oct. 15-16

London's Hammersmith Hospital Conference Centre will host the World BioPharm Forum 2007: New Frontiers in Nanomedicine conference in mid-October.

The accelerating and continual progress in technology and developments in nanomedicine could dominate medical applications for years to come.  This international conference will bring together leading academics, consultants, industrialists, technologists, regulatory experts and policy makers in the field. The meeting will encourage a strong inter-disciplinary exchange in leading edge aspects of nanomedicine research and the progression into clinical practice.

Participation is limited and hence academics, industry experts, clinicians and others are requested to apply to attend and submit papers or posters.

Topics to be covered during the 2-day event Nanomedicine include:
  • Structural Chemistry and Biochemistry in Nanomedicine
  • Drug Formulation, Delivery and Targeting
  • Nanomedicines and the Complement System
  • Cancer Nanomedicines, and
  • Nanotechnology in Healthcare
A detailed agenda and speaker list follows.  Click here for more information on the event or to register.
