LINK-J, in close collaboration with University of California San Diego (UC San Diego), will host a special symposium titled “Engineered Nanomedicine: Drug Delivery Systems and Platforms” on January 23, 2020.
Nanomedicine and nano-based drug delivery systems are rapidly developing science where materials in the nanometer length scale are employed to serve as means of diagnostic tools or to deliver therapeutic agents to specific targeted sites in a controlled manner.
We invite US and Japanese experts and discuss the recent developments and future prospects in an attempt to promote international university-industry research partnerships and expedite the translation of academic research work into practical applications.
Date and Time:
12:30 - 5:30, January 23, 2020
Nihonbashi Life Science HUB (8F., Muromachi Chibagin Mitsui Building)
