International Conference On Nanomedicine And Nanobiotechnology – ICONAN 2019

 

Nanomedicine and Nanobiotechnology have tremendous potential for tomorrow’s patient care in a broad variety of disease management, and numerous theoretical concepts are currently translated into preclinical and clinical studies. The fourth edition of the ICONAN conference brings together high-profile plenary speakers and world-class researchers who have successfully developed and translated nanomedicines over the last decades, offering a vibrant platform for oral and poster presentations, workshops, sponsor exhibits, and networking.

This year, in addition to the plenary, oral and poster sessions, ICONAN proposes three special sessions around different themes, such as:

Grant session: How to successfully apply for a prestigious personal grant?
Start-up session: How to successfully start a bio-nano-pharmaceutical company?
Large projects session: How to run a successful bio-nano-pharmaceutical consortial project?
