From Nanoscience to Biotechnology: Sensors and Delivery systems

Date Tuesday, May 12, 2009, 09:00 - 18:00
Location Carlsberg Akademi, Gamle Carlsbergvej 15, 2500 Valby
Organizers The Danish Biotechnological Society, NaNet, and BioLogue

Nanotechnology offers new tools for approaching biological materials and systems. We can now sense, view, manipulate, target, deliver, and package as we never could before. Will these insights and methods power the R&D renaissance needed by the biotech and pharma industries to flourish in our financially challenging times? Will they create the cross-disciplinary innovation needed at our universities? The cost-effective and streamlined processes needed at our hospitals? Come to hear about the research and development underway, the challenges and the opportunities - and decide for yourself.

Hosted by the Danish Biotechnological Society, NaNet, and BioLogue at the prestigious Carlsberg Akademi, the conference offers an all day programme with both international and Danish keynote speakers, four different tracks of presentations from academia, hospitals, and industry, a host of exhibitors, and a Science Dating session. The day finishes with our traditional "sushi and beer" networking together with an optional dinner at Restaurant Bjælkehuset.

Programme Highlights

Keynote presentations from international and Danish experts in the application of nanotechnology to biotech will address some of the following topics:

  • Post PCR diagnostics
  • From central lab to point of care to self care
  • Long lasting drug delivery systems and technologies
  • Targeted drug delivery via nanoparticles
  • Biocompatible materials for implanted diagnostics

Parallel tracks focus on the pharmaceutical and industrial biotech aspects of entity delivery and sensors for screening and diagnostics.

Science Dating is aimed at sparking further innovation through short one-on-one exploratory meetings between the presenters and the audience. Brainstorming R&D collaborations and follow-up meetings on the day of an exciting presentation is the best way to build and maintain the enthusiasm for new and innovative projects.
