This Symposium will highlight recent advances in Nanomedicine R&D, from gene delivery and screening, to nanomedicine formulation and development for the clinic. There will be several great speakers from both academia and industry who will present on their novel research. 

This free event will bring current users of the NanoAssemblr technology together with those interested in learning more about using microfluidics to manufacture nanoparticles, for a day of platform presentations and hands-on demonstrations. Participants will have the opportunity to network with colleagues over coffee, lunch and a reception at the close of the day.

This event is aimed at anybody from academia or industry with an interest in nanomedicine development.
