NanoMicroClub Networking Event - Biomedical Applications in Nanotechnology


NanoMicroClub Networking Event


Biomedical Applications in Nanotechnology


Thursday 26th May 2011


University of Glasgow


Organised by: The Institute of Nanotechnology

One of the reasons that nanotechnology is such an important growth area for medicine and the lifesciences is that biological systems are themselves built up from nanoscale components and subunits.  An increasing knowledge of how these biological structures and processes work and interact provides us with an ever greater insight into the pathology of disease, and the ability to consistently engineer solutions at the nanoscale offers opportunities for much earlier and accurate diagnoses and tailored, targeted treatments that are less invasive and more effective for the patient.


This workshop will provide an overview of some of the latest developments in applying nanotechnology to a range of important medical and lifescience applications including biosensing, clinical diagnostics, medical imaging, regenerative medicine and drug delivery.  In addition, the workshop will examine the often novel risks that may be presented by such nanoscale solutions, and the measures being taken to understand and address them. The workshop will also provide an opportunity to explore and discuss the various challenges and opportunities raised with experts from a range of backgrounds including those who have successfully commercialised nanotechnology applications, investors, researchers and new start-up businesses.


Interaction between participants will be encouraged and attendees will have the opportunity to discuss and debate the aspects of nanotechnology of particular concern to them and to forge useful new collaborations.


The University of Glasgow, who will host the workshop, is recognised as one of the leading UK and European institutions for academic nanoresearch encompassing biological sciences, medicine, electronics, chemistry, and physics in a highly interdisciplinary and dynamic environment.

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at

Dr. András Paszternák, founder of Nanopaprika
