The Nano World Cancer Day is an event organized within the framework of World Cancer Day where the latest innovations in NANOMEDICINE against CANCER will be announced, with topics ranging from early diagnosis, controlled release of drugs or nanoparticle radiotherapy.

One more year, experts in NANOMEDICINE from different fields -researchers, businessmen, medical oncologists, patients, etc.-, will present the latest advances and give us the opportunity to discover the generator of progress that NANOMEDICINE means for health as a creator of new opportunities in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer and how we can contribute to the European mission against cancer.

Initiated under the name of NANO WORLD CANCER DAY, NANOMED Spain organizes this year’s edition virtually with the collaboration of VHIR (Vall d’Hebron Research Institute) and VHIO (Vall d’Hebron Institute of Oncology).
