Nanotechnology for targeted personalized medicines and theranostics

As one of the newest areas of science, nano-scale science and technology are seen by many as the key technology of the 21st century, which of course raises the question as to what role this technology will play in medicine. Nanomedicine can thus take advantage of the recent developments in Nanobiotechnology research areas for the creation of platforms with superior drug carrier capabilities, selective responsiveness to the environment, unique contrast enhancement profiles and improved accumulation at the disease site.


Medicine is currently changing. New materials and technologies are revolutionizing therapeutic treatments, in various domains such as preventive medicine or diagnostic, management of diseases or implants. Multidisciplinary researches, at the edge of Material and Surface Chemistry, Biology, Physics and Medicine pave the way for a new era, in which innovative applications could strongly improve early diagnosis of diseases, patient comfort, with reduced intervention time and an unprecedented efficiency.

The symposium will focus on state-of-the-art recent developments in the design of novel nanomaterials answering important stakes in medicine. The objective is to discuss innovative researches in the fields of personalized medicine and image-guide therapy. A special concern is the design of the new nanoconstructs and the study of their corresponding biological properties. Such a symposium would be a good opportunity to bring together researchers from different communities (chemists, physicists, biologists and physicians) and see the latest developments in the synthesis, properties and clinical validations of nanoparticles and targeted nanomedicines.
