3rd European Science Foundation Summer School in Nanomedicine 2011

|Venue||Lutherstadt Wittenberg, Germany|
The ESF Forward Look Report on Nanomedicine (2005; www.esf.org) recommended the need to establish Pan-European interdisciplinary Research and Training Conferences covering the broad field of Nanomedicine. The first
highly successful ESF Research Conference on Nanomedicine was held at Sant Feliu de Guixols, Spain, 2006. This was followed by the 1st and 2nd ESF Summer Schools in Nanomedicine which took place in Cardiff, UK (2007) and Lisbon, Portugal (2009). The Summer School is a biennial event to be held at different locations throughout Europe and in 2011 it will be hosted by the University of Halle-Wittenberg.
Aims and Purpose
The ESF Summer School has been designed to provide an intensive state-ofthe- art training across all of the sub-disciplines of Nanomedicine, and to foster discussion and exchange of ideas in a relaxed atmosphere.
The lectures, tutorials and interactive workshops will particularly cover all aspects that are needed to transfer new nanotechnologies from bench to bedside – from materials science and engineering to clinical need, from
rational design of nanopharmaceuticals, imaging agents and constructs for tissue engineering to safe and practical development.
The programme will be structured to allow free time in the afternoon for informal networking and small group tutorials with timetabled events in the morning, late afternoon and evening. Posters will be mounted throughout the
Who should attend
The Summer School programme will cover Nanomedicine at a level that will be accessible to participants with diverse backgrounds – including Chemistry, Physics, Engineering, Biology, Pharmaceutical Sciences, Medicine, and Ethics.
The course will be specifically tailored to early career researchers (PhD students, Post-docs), medical doctors and industrialists entering this emerging field.
