Emerging Nanomaterials for Healthcare – An Interdisciplinary Conference at the University of Warwick
Keywords:Nanoparticles, nanomedicine, nanomaterials, healthcare, medicine
“Emerging Nanomaterials for Healthcare”, a one-day conference held at the University of Warwick on 28 November 2014, brought together over 80 academics, postgraduates and industrialists from 17 institutions and organisations from across the UK. The aim of the meeting was to provide an interdisciplinary forum to discuss research towards solving current problems in healthcare using “smart” treatments based on nanomaterials. In addition to stories of success, an emphasis was also placed on lessons learned, as well as visions for future directions in this rapidly expanding field. Seven speakers and over twenty poster presentations directed discussion throughout the day, while the meeting closed with an interactive panel discussion.
