Sir Mark Oliphant Conferences 2005 : BioNano - The Next Frontier
THE NANO REVOLUTION TAKES OFF
The healthcare technologies and manufacturing industries of the future take shape when bioengineering meets nanotechnology at a world scientific conference in Brisbane next month.
BioNano: The Next Frontier will bring together world-leading researchers - including at least one Nobel Laureate - to discuss current and future research and industry opportunities.
The conference will highlight the huge potential of nanotechnology at the interface between engineering, science and biology. Industry leaders and top researchers will profile the jobs, industries and research opportunities of the coming decade.
Key issues to be discussed include:
Nanotechnology: scientific discoveries and innovations in industry
The dawn of 'personalized medicine'
Tissue regeneration and tissue replacement
Artificial arteries and nerves
Cells as factories: new products, new processes
Viruses as nanotech platforms
Materials which assemble themselves
Commercial opportunities at the tiniest scale
The conference will take place at The Biosciences Precinct, The University of Queensland, Brisbane, Qld, from December 4-7, 2005.
Media are welcome to attend and interview participants.
