MESSAGE FROM CONFERENCE CHAIRS

 

WELCOME to Sydney Australia for the 10th International Nanomedicine Conference.

The annual International Nanomedicine Conference is regarded as the most significant nanomedicine meeting in the Southern Hemisphere.This event attracts approx. 250 registrants with representation from academia, medical research institutes and biotech companies. More than half of the delegates are from interstate and international organisations.

2019 marks the 10th Anniversary of this very successful conference. The Conference will be held from 24-26 June 2019 at Pier One Sydney Harbour Hotel for a special 10th Anniversary celebration. This event is again brought to you by the Australian Centre for NanoMedicine (ACN) and the ARC Centre of Excellence in Convergent Bio-Nano Science and Technology (CBNS). The main objective of the conference is to share novel research that may lead to prevention, diagnosis and/or treatment of some of the most challenging diseases, in an environment conducive to networking with colleagues from around the world.

We are fortunate to have five prominent scholars as our Plenary Speakers – Professors Joe Wang, Milica Radisic, Chunying Chen, Ranjeny Thomas and Alan Rowan – who will lead us through an exploration of our conference themes.

We will also showcase 15 Keynote speakers and 25 Invited speakers who will head discussions in the conference theme areas of Sensors and Imaging, Drug Delivery, Bioactive Materials, Social Aspects & Regulatory, Bio-Nano Interactions & Nanotoxicology, Industry Session and Microfluidic & Bioengineered Models. The unique Clinical Challenges session brings medical doctors into the conference to discuss opportunities for improving the treatment of patients in the clinic.

On behalf of the Conference Organising Committee, we look forward to welcoming you to the Conference!
