The INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL OF NANOMEDICINE has the pleasure to invite you to attend the course “Precision Nanomedicine” that will be held on 2-8 July 2019  at International “ETTORE MAJORANA FOUNDATION AND CENTRE FOR SCIENTIFIC CULTURE” of ERICE (Sicily) Italy.

The course is co-organized with the Nanomedicine Center of the University Milano-Bicocca – NANOMIB

The Lectures will be fully devoted to the latest and most significant achievement in the following sessions:

  • Unmet needs in developing nanoparticles for precision medicine
  • Translational challenges in precision nanomedicine
  • Personalizing nano-bio interface biomaterials
  • Cancer theranostics
  • Gene therapy and gene editing
  • Exosomes and microvesicles
  • Nanotherapies for CNS disorders
  • Emerging topics
  • Business challenges

The aim of the International School of Nanomedicine is to encourage and promote networking between young scientist in Nanomedicine and to provide them with state of art competences at an international level.

The course will provide many opportunities for interactions and discussions between students, postdocs, junior as well as senior investigators, encouraging and promoting networking between them. The Course will be located in the old pre-mediaeval city of Erice providing an amazing setting for high intellectual endeavor.
