2014 Workshop on Nanomedicine and Tumor Engineering for Cancer Diagnosis and Therapy

Monday, September 29, 2014 ( 8:00 am to 5:00 pm )

Location: Stevens Institute of Technology

This workshop brings together clinicians, scientists and engineers in a uniquely interdisciplinary environment to address the multi-faceted challenges of nanotechnology and oncology. The workshop theme explores the designs and approaches for novel cancer nano-based diagnostic modalities and therapeutics based on high-fidelity engineered cancer models. It also provides a better understanding of integrated pathophysiological processes that modulate human tumor functionality and growth.

The objectives of this workshop include:

  • Review recent breakthrough advances in nanomedicine and engineering, 3D tumor microenviornments and ex vivo (i.e., “tumor engineering”) for cancer diagnosis and therapy
  • Identify new synergistic research opportunities and scientific challenges to further advance nanomedicine and tumor engineering for cancer diagnosis and therapy
  • Provide an impetus for research collaborations

Attendees are invited to submit a one-page poster abstract addressing the workshop theme.
