Science Researcher Update: Spotlight on Meetings, Conferences, and Events

5th Zing Bionanomaterials Conference

Posted on Mar 14, 2015 1:26:57 PM

Conference - Carvoeiro, Portugal

We are proud to announce the 5th Zing Bionanomaterials Conference which shall be taking place in April 2015.

This conference will consider advances in nanobiomaterials with a special emphasis on the synthesis, the caracterisation including synchrotron and neutron approaches, the toxicity and the therapeutics. The interaction of the nanomaterials with biomolecules, biological interfaces and biofluids will receive a special consideration.

A key topic will be the transport of nanoparticles across barriers such as cell membranes and the blood brain barrier, as well as transport in and between cells such as neurones. Such processes give rise to the possibility of using the nanoparticles as vectors to deliver therapeutic materials. The goal of this ZING conference is to bring together the experts in the relevant fields and animate discussions on the relevance of in silico, in vitro and in vivo tools and models for the assessment of drug delivery by oral and parenteral routes.

A further topic will be the elucidation of toxicity effects and the link between nanoparticles surface properties, cell response, and the fate of nanoparticles taken up by cells. This issue must be resolved for any widespread application of nanobiomaterials to become effective.
