A group of 16 international experts in nanomedicine met in Malaga on 25 March to discuss the latest advances in the field. In working groups and through the presentation of papers, the participants analyzed the potential of nanomedicine to resolve health-related problems. Experts in basic and clinical research reported on advances in the use of nanotechnologies for clinical diagnosis and the treatment of disease.
The International Workshop on Nanomedicine was organized jointly by the Progress and Health Foundation, the Spanish Platform on Nanomedicine (NanoMed Spain), the Biomedical Research Networking Center in Bioengineering, Biomaterials and Nanomedicine (CIBER-BBN), and Malaga University. The seminar took place in the context of NanoSpain 2010, an international event held annually to facilitate the dissemination of knowledge in the field of nanotechnology.
NanoMed Spain is a consortium universities, research centers, and hospitals administered by the Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia (IBEC). Josep Samitier, an associate director of IBEC, is also the scientific director of the Platfor
