International Conference and Exhibition on
Nanomedicine and Nanotechnology
The Herald’s International Conference on Nanomedicine & Nanotechnology was an unprecedented event organized by Herald Scientific Group at Baltimore, USA during October 12-14, 2016. We express our sincere gratitude to all the committee members, editorial board, partners, sponsors, wonderful speakers and volunteers who made this event a true success. The Nano-2016 meeting included 4 keynote presentations, 13 plenaries, 33 session talks and panel discussions, 25 poster presentations, exhibitions, breakfast, three luncheons and receptions; and meeting with the honorable guests from 19 countries namely Canada, USA, Russia, Korea, Argentina, India, Israel, Australia, Italy, China, Mexico, Taiwan, South Africa, Iraq, Iran, Japan, Qatar, Cuba, United Kingdom.
Primary objective of this conference was to create a premier forum for the international researchers, scholars and academicians to share their research results in the fields of Nanomedicine and Nanotechnology. We believed that we successfully achieved this objective during the conference. The conference was chaired by the International Expert in Nanotechnology Dr. Carlo Montemagno Director of Ingenuity Lab of University of Alberta, Canada and the keynotes were delivered by Dr. Carlo Montemagno, Prof. Alexander M. Seifalian, Dr. Mark Kester, and Dr. Eui-Hyeok Yang. The plenary speeches were delivered by Dr. Paul Sheehan, USA; Prof. Sergey S. Bukalov, Russia; Prof. Silvia Mittler, Canada; Dr. Chun-Long Chen, USA; Prof. Jagat R Kanwar, Australia; Prof. Michael J Heller, USA; Dr. Flavio Rizzolio, Italy; Prof. Yashwant Pathak, USA; Prof. Mandip Singh, USA; Prof. Rupinder K. Kanwar, Australia; Prof. Huanyu (Larry) Cheng, USA; Dr. Kapal Dewan, USA and Prof. Zhenli He, USA. The Workshop on “How to take your nano research from laboratory to patient and commercialisation?” by Prof. Alexander M. Seifalian, University College London, UK created a relaxed atmosphere among audience and enabled the attendees to learn extremes.
The conference schedule divided into 7 themes:
- Nanomaterials Synthesis and Fabrication
- Advanced Nanomaterials
- Nano Electronics
- Nanotechnology in Science and Medicine
- Nano for Energy and Environment
- Applications of Nanotechnology
- Nanotechnology: Environment, Health & Safety Issues
In the award ceremony, the Best Poster Awards were received by
1. Xiaoping Xin, University of Florida, USA
2. Alejandra Huerta-Squero, Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico, Mexico
3. Leon Sanche, Universite de sherbrooke, Canada
The conference proceedings will be published in HSOA Journal of Nanotechnology: Nanomedicine & Nanobiotechnology as special issue. For an idea of the conference proceedings visit: http://www.heraldopenaccess.us/journals/Nanotechnology-Nanomedicine-&-Nanobiotechnology/index.php
We hope to receive the same cooperation from the committee and editorial board for the 2nd International Conference on Nanoscience and Nanotechnology will be scheduled at Florida, USA.
