• Nanomaterials in Biomedical Sciences

    The tremendous potential of nanomaterials for biomedical applications has long been recognized. The past decade, the use of nanomaterials has been extensively exploited in different bio-fields, including drug delivery, (pre-) clinical imaging, in vitro and in vivo diagnosis and theragnosis. Besides significant steps forward, it remains a crucial challenge to translate nanomaterials in biomedical and clinical applications. In this 2-days workshop it is the intention to highlight the potential of nanomaterials for biomedical applications.
