The "Tumor targeting & radiotherapies network" of the Cancéropôle Grand-Ouest is glad to announce its sixth European workshop dedicated to young researchers (PhD Students and Post-Docs). This workshop will be focussed on "Nanomedicine in Oncology" from the 26th to 29th of September 2012 in Berder Island, France.
The main objective of this European workshop is to present the most recent advances in the field of nanomedicine for the diagnosis and treatment of cancer, from the development of innovative nanosystems and processes to preclinical and clinical assessment, with a particular focus of functional imaging, nucleic acid delivery and targeting, tumor resistance and toxicology issues.
Overview lectures will be given by experts in the scientific fields. Young researchers will get the opportunity of a first talk in a European meeting to present their research projects. In order to stimulate intense discussions between young and senior scientists, the total attendance is limited to a maximum of 60 persons.
This event will take place in the Morbihan gulf in Brittany - France, on Berder island.
