Innovations in Textiles 2009

Smart, nano and technical textiles for medical, industrial and clothing applications

Innovations in Textiles 2009 conference

New Price: £50 + VAT

Nanotechnology and advances in technology are leading to a spectrum of advances in textiles. For example:

  • in sports and health applications, to monitor and relay vital signs and fitness levels
  • in defence , to protect from chemical, biological or nuclear effects
  • for safety, materials that stiffen-up on impact, cushioning the elderly against falls or for use in extreme sports

Presentations at the IoN 'Innovations in Textiles 2009' conference, held at The Royal College of Physicians, London on March 18th 19th 2009, covered these textiles applications and more.

The conference brought together multiple disciplines and various technologies and developments in the textiles arena. The conference had an application side, as to where textile developments can be used by various industries, as well as keeping the audience up to date on the latest technologies and ideas being developed.

Included in the post-event proceedings CD are: Presentations from the event, conference handbook containing short abstracts and biographies of the presenters and also posters displayed at the event and delegate list.

21st Century Medicine - Breakthroughs and Challenges

November 2008

21st Century Medicine conference

New Price: £50 + VAT

Some of the most exciting research in the world is being undertaken in the field of medicine. Many challenges exist in identifying disease at the earliest possible stage and preventing and treating cancer, congenital, degenerative and infectious diseases and increasingly, lifestyle induced diseases such as diabetes.

Even greater challenges exist in bringing affordable, safe medicines to a wide population, and in enabling the elderly to remain active and maintain their faculties for as long as possible.

Hear what international experts think the greatest medical challenges are, and how they can be met using the new technologies to unravel the secrets of illness and create the means whereby we can all live longer, healthier lives.

Included in the post-event proceedings CD are:

  • Presentations from the event
  • Conference handbook containing short abstracts and biographies of the presenters
  • exhibitor information, poster abstracts displayed at the event and delegate list

Nanotechnology: Towards Reducing Animal Testing

May 2008

Nanotechnology: Towards Reducing Animal Testing conference

New Price: £50 + VAT

Animal testing is costly and there is a great deal of research on finding viable and effective alternatives (new methods that refine existing tests by minimizing animal distress, reducing animal usage, or replacing whole animal tests). Despite large reductions in animal testing since the early 1980s due to improved in vitro methods, levels remain high (over 3 million procedures in 2006) and results cannot always be extrapolated to humans.

The application of nanotechnology is currently revolutionizing medicine and this two-day conference, the first of its kind in Europe, examined the role nanotechnology can play in improving or refining the development of alternatives to animal testing whilst maintaining safety. Themes included:

  • a review of some of the most promising human cell-based in vitro models
  • novel lab-on-a-chip and bioreactor systems for screening, toxicology and targeting studies
  • surface modification at the nanoscale to improve biosensors and in vitro test systems
  • potential new strategies for applying nanotechnology to alternatives
  • the role of the European Centre for the Validation of Alternative Methods (ECVAM)

Included in the post-event proceedings CD are:

  • Presentations from the event
  • Conference handbook containing short abstracts and biographies of the presenters and also posters displayed at the event
  • delegate list and recording from the discussion session which took place on day 2 of the event.
