Exploring the new frontier in medicine: nanotechnology

Clock icon
18:30 – 18:30 4 Feb 2016

University of Liverpool, Liverpool Medical Institution: corner of Hope Street and Oxford Street, L69 7ZX

Speakers: Dr Tamas Szakmany, Cardiff University

The term “nanoscience” is literally the science of tiny things. It’s not biology, physics or chemistry. It’s all sciences that work with the very small. At the nanoscale, different particles, atoms and metals behave completely differently. Research in nanoscience strives to understand these laws and how they govern the behaviour of nanoscale objects. Today, nanomedicines are used in analytical and imaging tools, and targeted drug-delivery systems and discoveries are translating breakthroughs in the understanding of disease into preventative medicine and creating opportunities for more affordable healthcare. Joint meeting with the Liverpool Medical Institution

Event type: Lecture/Talk
Organised by: Institute of Physics Merseyside Branch
