Clinical Applications of Nanomedicine and Nanotechnology

DESCRIPTION: In the first world, the progressive aging of the population due to the increase of life expectancy, the higher complexity of diseases and therapies, the saturation of the public health systems together with an increasing demand of welfare and the request for more cost-effective, fast and reliable personalized medicines, are urgently requiring better diagnostic and therapeutic solutions.

If nanotechnology refers to the design, production and application of structured materials, devices and systems at the nanometric scale, nanomedicine refers to their uses in diagnostics and treatments in the medical practice and therefore, new nanotechnology based systems improving our health and life expectancy are impatiently requested.

To this end, the correct identification of target stakeholders and end-users is fundamental. These include scientists, medical doctors and practitioners, general public and patient associations, regulators and policy makers, and finantial, industrial and technological sectors among the most relevant ones. The potential wide range of applications of nanomedicine is generating a growing interest from both, research scientists and pharma industry. In this Workshop we will discuss about some of the most relevant issues and examples of these.
