The Second International Conference on Nanotechnology at the Bio-Medical Interfaces, NANOBIO2012, was recently organized by the Amrita Centre for Nanosciences in Kochi

The purpose of this cnference was to bring together world leaders in the field of regenerative medicine and molecular medicine wherein nanotechnology provides a major value addition. Both these fields of Regenerative and Molecular medicine represent the cutting edge, or the new frontier, of medicine whereby cellular mechanisms are selectively engineered to make a quantum improvement in treatment, particularly in this age of drug resistance and tissue degeneration or loss that afflicts a large percentage of the population. This conference focused on the regenerative medicine, cancer nanotechnology, drug delivery and molecular medicine, each of which was represented by leaders in the field. The format was designed to promote discussion and the exchange of new and emerging ideas. There were also brainstorming sessions about where the emphasis should be in future research and the problems that most need to be addressed. 

This conference is designed for scientists in the field but is also ideal for PhD research students, post doctoral scientists and new researchers who are beginning to enter this exciting field. The conference will have a presentation/discussion format, round table area-specific group discussions and recommendations and strategies for creating interdisciplinary national and international teams.
