Nano World Cancer Day 2017
quinta 2 de fevereiro de 2017, 09:30 – 12:15 WET
The Nano World Cancer Day 2017 is an event organized in the framework of the World Cancer Day. It aims to amplify awareness about Nanomedicine and its ability to introduce new opportunities and game changers in the fight against cancer.
Simultaneous dynamic and informative events dedicated to press, students and medical doctors are organized in 15 countries across Europe and beyond.
The Nano World Cancer Day offers a chance to discover the revolutions provided by Nanomedicine in cancer management and care:
Nanomedicine provides smart solutions to beat cancer
In each country, local experts in Nanomedicine (researchers, entrepreneurs, oncologists, clinicians, public authorities, patients…) will deliver short speeches about the latest concrete and disruptive innovations in Nanomedicine applied to cancer and answer all questions the audience may have.
Initiated in 2013, the Nano World Cancer Day is an event organized by the European Technology Platform on Nanomedicine (ETPN) together with the European Project ENATRANS (Enabling NAnomedicine TRANSlation).
