Integrated Cancer Research Center Symposium

Recent Advances in Cancer Nanotechnology: From Diagnostics to Therapeutics

April 13, 2017, Engineered Biosystems Building (EBB), Rm 1005

Georgia Institute of Technology

We are at a truly exciting crossroads in the history of cancer research where molecular biology, the computational sciences, engineering and nanotechnology are joining together in a unified effort to develop more effective cancer diagnostics and therapeutics. The benefits of this integrated approach are only beginning to be realized. The number of new technologies and devices arising from the fields of biomedical engineering and nanotechnology that have potential application to the area of cancer biology is unprecedented. The second annual ICRC mini-symposium at Georgia Tech will showcase recent advances in cancer nanotechnology by national and international experts in the field. Pre-registration is not required but space is limited. Please come early and participate in discussions with leaders in the field.
