The Center for Minimally Invasive Therapeutics (C-MIT) is delighted to host the 6th annual workshop on “Micro- and Nanotechnologies for Medicine: Emerging Frontiers and Applications” this coming summer. The advances in micro- and nanotechnologies are expected to open up new possibilities and applications in diagnostics, therapy, drug delivery and regenerative medicine. In this workshop, participants will acquire the fundamentals and advances in the fields of three dimensional bioprinting, bioMEMS, biomaterials and tissue engineering. Leading experts will present the latest advances in the development of novel micro- and nanotechnologies and address a range of different challenges that are of importance to biomedicine at the interface of engineering, medicine and biological sciences.

Register here and see complete details for the 5-day event. Seating is limited so register early!

Additionally, the Masoumeh Ghaderi Award will be given to the best Poster at the Annual Workshop. The winner will be given a commemorative certificate and a monetary prize of $1000. The abstract deadline is May 15, 2018. If you would like to present a poster, please send a title and abstract when you register.  

The areas covered during the workshop:

  • Organs-on-a-chip
