2016 INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON NANOBIOTECHNOLOGY
anoMedicine from discovery to clinical reality: therapeutics, delivery and imaging

CALIFORNIA NANOSYSTEMS INSTITUTE (CNSI)
UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, LOS ANGLES (UCLA)

On February 3rd - 5th, 2016, the California NanoSystems Institute (CNSI) at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) will host the 2016 International Symposium on Nanobiotechnology entitled "Nanomedicine from discovery to clinical reality: therapeutics, delivery and imaging."

The Symposium on Nanobiotechnology provides a forum for rigorous discussion of cutting edge science in the design, synthesis and fundamental study of nanotechnology and application in the areas of biology and medicine. Nanobiotechnology research encompasses an extremely diverse group of scientists working in the fields of physical sciences, life sciences and medicine. Fundamental research leads to translation of these findings into clinically applicable interventions, and this process will also be a focus of the meeting.

The 10th annual Symposium on Nanobiotechnology will cover new materials for drug delivery and cellular interactions, sensors and diagnostics, and new imaging techniques, as well as biological interactions such as immunological responses and in vivo targeting abilities. World-renowned researchers are invited speakers and young scientists will be given the opportunity to contribute talks and posters. Where relevant, discussion will focus upon possible translational aspects and real world applications with an eye to the unsolved and unmet problems of the future that Nanobiotechnology researchers collectively can solve.
