Special Symposium

This symposium will cover the recently publicized advantages of using nanomaterials in various biomedical applications including as implants, tissue engineering materials, etc. The key focus is the complementary length scale between biological structures that range from the 10's of nanometers (proteins, DNA, viruses) to the micron scale (cells and cellular assemblies) and the new capabilities of nanosystems to manipulate and control such feature sizes within our environment.

Topics & Application Areas

  • Cellular & Nanostructure Material Interactions
  • Interfaces & Coatings for Biotech
  • Cellular & Nanostructure Material Interactions
  • Receptors, Pores & Channels
  • Cell Supports & Scaffolds
  • Tissues & Tissue Engineering
  • Novel Biological Applications of Nano Materials
  • Biomimetics
  • Other
