Scope of Symposium

In recent years, the application of nanotechnology in the area of medicine has become prominent, and hence the emergence of research in the field of nanomedicine. This symposium aims to address the synthesis of multifunctional nanomaterials via novel approaches and their potential applications in imaging, targeting and therapy. The following topics will be covered in this symposium.

• Functional inorganic nanoparticles (e.g. quantum dots, metallic, magnetic, upconversion) and other nanomaterials (e.g. liposomes, micelles, polymers) for diagnostic and therapeutic applications
• Functionalized nanocarriers for cellular uptake and their pharmacokinetics, nanotoxicology
• Multifunctional nanomaterials for bioimaging applications
• Therapeutic delivery using nanoscale biodegradable polymer capsules, controlled release of DNA, etc.
• Innovative biomaterials
• Interactions of nanomaterials with cells, tissues, and living organisms
• Nanotechnology in regenerative medicine

Proceedings

The manuscripts of all those papers that are presented at the conference and accepted after peer review will be published online in “Procedia Engineering” by  Elsevier. Details for online submission of the manuscripts will be made available by concerned symposium chair while accepting the paper for presentation at the conference.
