Focused session on Nanomaterials for drug and gene delivery
Keynote and invited speakers
Description: The interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary knowledge from modern nanobiotechnologies has contributed to the impressive development of genuine nanosized and nanostructured biomaterials and biocompatible platforms. These nanobiomaterials offers multiple advantages for effective drug delivery, with the potential to improve the efficacy and tolerability of new and old therapeutics.
Over the last several decades, nanomedicine has provided various high-performance tools to overcome biomedical challenges that have resulted in numerous patents. Particularly, drug delivery systems enabled the surpassing of drug stability and solubility limits, improved the routes for drug administration, reduced the dose-associated toxicity, and enhanced the target specificity by exploring both active and passive delivery strategies
Depending on the preparation method, the therapeutic substance (naturally derived or synthetic drug) is either physically entrapped in or covalently bound to the matrix of the pharmaceutical nanosystem. The resulting compounds may have the structure of capsules (nanoparticles or nanostructured microspheres), amphiphilic core/shell structures (micelles or liposomes), or hyperbranched macromolecules
In order to fully realise the potential of nanomedicines, it is important to understand how the physicochemical properties and consequent bio-nano interactions of nanomaterials influence their drug release properties, interactions with cells and tissues, in vivo biodistribution, and ultimately, their fate.
For this session, we invite researchers to present their latest findings on the synthesis of nanosized and nanostructured biomaterials intended for new pharmaceutically active formulations, advances in the understanding of their interactions with biological entities, and their potential applications in the broader field of medicine and healthcare.
Focused session on Nanostructured surfaces, coatings and films
Keynote and invited speakers
Description: The recent advancements in nanostructured thin film and nano-coatings technologies have created a tremendous opportunity for innovations in both academic research and industries such as energy production, healthcare, and environmental remediation. Nano-coatings / Thin films can be defined as coatings with nanoscale thickness, second-phase nano-granules distributed in a matrix, thick coatings that have nanosized grains or phases, etc.
Because of the superior physicochemical properties, thin film nanostructures’ share in the market has been increasing considerably. Especially, the recent progress in the fields of thin film syntheses and the tailored fabrication of nanostructured surfaces provides endless possibilities for a new generation of tuneable materials for diverse applications. They have applications in many industrial fields, such as the aerospace and car industries, medical implants and instruments, metal industry for equipment and tools, chemical and food industries, etc. Depending on their application, nanocoatings may be required to be hard, to protect the underlying substrate, elastic, or, for medical applications, biocompatible.
All scientists and researchers working in the field of thin films and nanotechnology are cordially invited to submit their abstracts covering all aspects of fundamental and applied research on thin films and nanomaterials.
