Cancer Nanotechnology Gordon Research Conference (GRC) is organized by Gordon Research Conferences (GRC) and will be held from Jun 23 - 28, 2019 at Mount Snow Grand Summit Resort, West Dover, Vermont, United States of America.
Nanotechnology holds great promise for cancer therapy, diagnostics, and imaging, but bridging the translational gap presents a complex challenge. Most nanomedicine studies are concentrated in cancer. Due to the presence of leaky vasculature and impaired lymphatic drainage in solid tumors, nanoparticles selectively accumulate in the tumor via the mechanism of the enhanced permeability and retention (EPR) effect. Thus, nanoparticles are uniquely suitable for delivering diagnostic and/or imaging agents, chemotherapeutics, oligonucleotides and immune regulators to improve the therapeutic index of these compounds.
Nanoparticles also offer an amplification mechanism for bioanalytical detection and sensor devices for cancer biomarkers. It is not surprising that the number of publications in cancer nanotechnology had increased rapidly to about 700 per year. The conference will bring together a lively group of exceptional scientists in order to: (i) share cutting-edge research in cancer nanotechnology by experts representing the whole spectrum of life sciences, exact science, engineering and medicine; (ii) foster discussion, exchange of ideas, and promote collaborations and (iii) enhance the training and development of young scientists while promoting diversity. By bringing together individuals spanning diverse disciplines from cancer biology to chemical engineering, we will gain new insights for harnessing nanotechnology in the fight against cancer. A high priority of the Cancer Nanotechnology GRC and GRS is to increase the diversity of participants. Towards this goal, funds are requested for travel and registration support of under-represented speakers.
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
