The symposium is specifically designed to highlight local research in nanotechnology from an engineering and synthetic perspective with the emphasis on the current clinical medical applications of these technologies. Themes include:

  • Nanotoxicology
  • Tissue regeneration and repair
  • Delivery of therapeutics (drugs, siRNA, DNA, peptides)
  • Imaging
  • Sensing and diagnosis
