NanoKTN Hosts Discussion at BIO 2010 to Look at Challenges of Engineering in Biology for Regenerative Medicine

3rd May 2010: BIO 2010, Chicago, IL, USA

The Nanotechnology Knowledge Transfer Network (NanoKTN), one of the UK’s primary knowledge-based networks for Micro and Nanotechnologies, is pleased to confirm the details of its workshop at this year’s BIO event in Chicago, USA. The workshop, co-hosted by Dr Mike Fisher, Healthcare & Life Sciences Theme Manager at the NanoKTN, and Tony Bradshaw, Co-Director at the HealthTech & Medicines KTN, will explore the technical and commercial issues surrounding regenerative medicine.

Issues of an aging population are global and new products in regenerative medicine are needed to help solve these. Many countries are investing heavily in stem cell research and regenerative medicine but the final step of commercialisation still eludes industry.
