If you register for more than one course you can benefit from a discount on registration fees and also from a wide range and depth of information provided by top-class speakers.
Q: Do you offer tailor made courses?
A: If there is a topic you would like us to cover or tailor to your organisation we can customize and deliver courses, of any length or depth, at client sites anywhere in the world, or at an external venue of your choice. This can provide considerable cost savings for your organisation as the course is directly relevant to you and employees from different locations can share the knowledge gained – without the expense of travel and accommodation associated with other courses. We can work directly with you to ensure that training provided meets your needs and addresses specific issues effecting your organisation. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with details of your course requirements.

Q: Will the presentations be distributed before the course?
A: Unfortunately it is extremely difficult to obtain a copy of each presentation prior to or during one of the nanomedicine themed courses, as presenters often modify their presentations shortly before giving lectures.
We will endeavor to obtain as many as the presentations after the course as possible for distribution to delegates. Unfortunately in certain circumstances we are unable to make all the presentations available after a course due to the use of unpublished data and copyright restrictions. We will make every effort to make presentations available to all attendees as soon as possible, which may also include edited presentations where copyright issues apply.
