On July 8-12, 2019, the Center for Minimally Invasive Therapeutics (C-MIT) will be delighted to host the 7th annual workshop on “Micro- and Nanotechnologies for Medicine: Emerging Frontiers and Applications” at the Mong Auditorium in Engineering VI at UCLA. 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 on this 5-day event. Seating is limited so register early! 

Sessions will cover:

  • Biomaterials
  • Tissue engineering
  • Microfluidics
  • Medical devices
  • Bio-nanotechnology
  • Nano-technology
  • Commercialization

Poster Sessions and Awards: Three posters will be selected for the M. Ghaderi Award, UCLA-CTSI Science Translational Award, and Micromachines Best Poster Award. The winners will each be given a commemorative certificate and a monetary prize of $1000. Poster registration is due May 1.
