Nanotechnology is a new exciting field of study that has the potential to revolutionise the way that medical and healthcare solutions are developed and delivered.
This seminar will demonstrate the impact that nanotechnology has in the advance of medicine and bio-sensing techniques and discuss how to progress this area to meet the future needs. Drawing together key workers from industry, academia and clinical practice, this event will work as a catalyst to inspire people to learn about nanotechnology and to develop research and commercial ideas of nanotechnology in medical applications.
