A Symposium on the Convergence of Bio/Nanotechnology and Medicine
November 6-7, 2008
Chair: James Castracane
This symposium will bring together a group of accomplished experts in various fields of nanotechnology, biotechnology, medicine and commercialization. The 2-day symposium includes short courses, a poster session, vendor show, and technical sessions with invited talks that encompass the interface of nanotechnology and medicine, as well as the commercialization of nano/biotechnology. Itis an outstanding opportunity for engineers, scientists, physicians and entrepreneurs to learn the cutting edge development and innovation in the field of nanobiotechnology. The participants will also learn the convergence of nanotechnology and biotechnology to explore the cross-field fertilization opportunities.
