Manipal, 19 February: India is set to host its first ever Nature Conference on “Nanomaterials in biomedical applications” on 26 and 27 February 2024. The two-day event will bring together leading researchers from around the world working in the field of nanomaterials to discuss the latest trends, challenges, developments, and implications of nanotechnology in healthcare.

The “Nanomaterials in biomedical applications” Nature Conference to be hosted by Manipal Academy of Higher Education, an Institute of Eminence declared by the Government of India, is a first of its kind international conference in India. It will cover different areas where nanomaterials have found application such as theranostic, bio-imaging, drug delivery, vaccines, and immunotherapy. The conference will highlight recent advances as well as unpublished research in these areas and encourage discussion amongst scientists in a stimulating environment. The two-day conference will feature eminent speakers, who have enabled the translational application of nanomaterials in the last decade. There will also be a vibrant poster session, a special panel on gender disparity focusing on the Indian research landscape, and networking opportunities at the end of each day.
