Advanced materials that incorporate magnetic nanoparticles can be used in numerous fields, including bioseparations, hyperthermia treatment, drug delivery and toxin removal, medical diagnostics, and sensing devices. Abstracts are invited for presentations offering an experimental or theoretical approach to the design, development and application of magnetic nanoparticles for use in biotechnology or medicine. It is anticipated that papers will be submitted from researchers in the areas of pharmaceutics, transport and diffusional phenomena, nanotechnology, polymer science, biochemical engineering and biomedical systems. Bionanotechnology Graduate students: By applying to this session you may be eligible for the 22b Bionanotechnology Graduate Student Award Session (22B15) established to honor students whose research achievements in bionanotechnology demonstrates a high level of excellence.
