701 Novel Nanoparticles and Nanostructured Materials for Pharmaceuticals and Medical Applications

Thursday, November 17, 2016: 12:30 PM - 3:00 PM
Bay View (Hotel Nikko San Francisco)
Description:
Nanoparticles and nanostructured materials have started to find applications in the food, biomedical and pharmaceutical sectors, typically either as carrier vehicle, as active ingredient or as diagnostic agent. Reports on the synthesis of such nanostructured particles, their characterization and/or performance are the focus of this session. Of special interest are strategies to control functionality during synthesis or post (surface-) modification of the nanostructured particles. Discussions on the toxicological aspects of their application are most welcome but not mandatory. Focus areas include, but are not limited to: • Synthesis & applications of novel organic and inorganic nanomaterials for Bio, Food and Pharma • Nanoscale materials and devices for biomedical applications • Biosensing & Bioimaging • Nano-nutraceuticals • Nanoparticle interfaces and (bio)functionalization • Nanoscale lipid assemblies for active ingredient delivery • Modeling & simulation of nanocarriers
