14th International Symposium on Nanomedicine
November 17th(Wed)-19th(Fri), 2021 Zoom Meeting at Shimane University


Organized by Nanomedicine Society
Cooperated by the Society of Nano Science and Technology

Scope of 14th ISNM

The combination of top-down and bottom-up nano-technologies started a real revolution in science & technology and has opened a new interdisciplinary science field of Nano-Bio-Medicine. Medical treatment is one of the interesting fields where we will find important applications of this new science. To find a solution for intractable diseases such as cancer and neurodegenerative diseases is one of the important exit of this new science.

The aims of this symposium.
(1) To provide a platform on which the future prospects for science and technologies in the fields of Nano-Bio-Medicine are discussed and an international human network is constructed.
(2) To incubate excellent young generation researchers in these fields utilizing this network. Concerning these aims, we especially consider the importance of Asian network, and invite several speakers in the relating fields from these countries.

Main subjects and key words of this symposium are:

a) Nanomedicine

keywords: drug delivery systems, imaging, diagnosis, cancer, theoretical biology, etc.,

b) Nanobiology

keywords: single cell analysis, single molecular analysis, nano-materials, laser application to nanomedicine, artificial membranes, etc.,

c) Cell nucleus reactions and nanomedicine

keywords: chromatin dynamics, non-coding RNA, epigenetics, splicing, nuclear envelope protein, etc.,

d) Application of nano-biotechnology for industry: academic-industrial collaboration

keywords: translational research, practical application, academic-industrial collaboration, etc.,

In this symposium we try to enlarge our field of vision by arranging a special session.

Theme: “Immune disorders and Autoimmune diseases”
and sponsors session

Theme: “Social implementation of nanomedicine from ISNM”
