Fourth Annual Minnesota Biomedical Nanotechnology Workshop

November 7, 2008

Program Directors:

  • Andrew Taton, Ph.D. – University of Minnesota
  • Priyabrata Mukherjee, Ph.D. – Mayo Clinic

This was the fourth year researchers and clinicians from academia and industry came together to promote and strengthen collaborations in the emerging field of nanobiotechnology. This was a gathering of primarily Minnesota experts from private industry; the Institute of Technology and the Academic Health Center, University of Minnesota; and the College of Medicine, Department of Biochemistry/Molecular Biology, and the Cancer Center at Mayo Clinic. Their goals are to design, develop, and implement nanotechnology and nanoscience for new therapeutics and detection methods towards addressing important medical challenges (e.g., cancer and other diseases).
