Nanotechnology and nanomaterials have gained enough attention in recent years also due to its significant role in the field of medical sciences. 

This conference is of multidisciplinary nature, covering various disciplines of science related to nanomaterials and nanotechnology. This meeting aims at bringing together students, researchers, faculty members, and experts from health systems (e.g. Hospitals) and companies on a common platform to present the most recent achievements and views on the field, discuss and look to the future of nanomaterials for human health applications.



The MAD-NANO16 will be held in Funchal, Madeira Island, Portugal from November 17 to 20, 2016.

The islands of Madeira and Porto Santo were officially discovered by the Portuguese navigators Tristão Vaz Teixeira, Bartolomeu Perestrelo and João Gonçalves Zarco in 1419 and are considered the first territorial discovery of the period of the “Portuguese Age of Discovery”. With a subtropical-Mediterranean climate, a Laurisilva forest considered by UNESCO a World Natural Heritage, 2170 km of levadas (aqueducts) to carry water from the northwest to the agricultural regions in the south, well served by infrastructures (airport, roads, industrial free zone, hospitals, university), and well connected by direct flights from the main European cities and other countries, the Madeira Islands attract not only tourists from all over the world and during the entire year but also people that want to work and live in a safe and beautiful region.

The MAD-NANO16 will take place at the  VIDAMAR RESORTS - Madeira, a magnificent 5-star hotel. The hotel is located on the south coast of the island and benefits from an exclusive oceanfront position. It has a contemporary style with elegant décor throughout and spacious modern rooms with balconies overlooking the ocean and beautifully landscaped mature gardens.  The resort also has a Sea SPA, which features a range of salt water-inspired therapies and treatments.
