This is a joint event between KTN and the Centre for NanoHealth from Swansea University and is supported by the British Society for Nanomedicine and MediWales.

The Nano4Life Conference is a forum providing the latest updates on the developments that nanotechnology and other enabling technologies are delivering within the health and care industries. It aims to identify any gaps in the supply chain, which is necessary for commercial and clinical success. Nano4Life offers excellent networking opportunities and will include presentations from industry, leading clinicians and academics working in nanotechnology and emerging technologies for health as well as organisations supporting collaborations and innovation.

Nano4Life 2015 will focus on the application of enabling technologies in:

  • Medical devices and diagnostics
  • Regenerative medicine
  • Nano-therapeutics

The programme will include scientific and technical challenges and collaboration opportunities from large and SMEs alike, the clincal applications of nanotechnology, UK and EU funding opportunities as well as pannel discussion on support for innovation and plans to support the UK Nanomedicine community.
