Nanotech 2008 Announces Call for Abstracts
More Than 20 Technical Tracks Are Accepting Papers For Conference Consideration, Including the Merck Corporate Symposium-An Exclusive Program to Nanotech 2008
We are pleased to announce that the Nanotech 2008 Call for Papers is now open. NSTI Nanotech 2008, the world’s largest and most comprehensive technical and business event in nanotechnology, will be held June 1-5 in Boston, Massachusetts www.nsti.org/Nanotech2008/. The submission deadline is December 6th, 2007.
In addition to the technical tracks featured each year, the NSTI is very pleased to be partnering with Merck at Nanotech 2008 to bring conference attendees the Merck Corporate Symposium: Targeted Delivery of siRNA. Merck is interested to learn of enabling technologies that can be applied to the targeted delivery of siRNA particles in-vivo. Merck is also interested in novel assays to follow intracellular processing and trafficking of siRNA.form. “We are delighted that Merck, one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world, has partnered with our conference to help address their company’s advanced research needs,” notes Dr. Bart Romanowicz, Executive Director of the Nano Science and Technology Institute.
