The Institute of Nanotechnology (IoN) and Cranfield University ran a one-day training course - “What is nanomedicine?” on Tuesday 27 November 2007 from 10h00 – 17h00 at the Linnean Society of London, Burlington House, Piccadilly, London.

Nanotechnology is defined as the “design, characterisation, production and application of structures, devices and systems by controlling shape and size at the nanoscale (having one or more dimensions of the order of 100 nm or less)”. One of the most active and important current areas of research and application of nanotechnology is in the field of medicine. Many industry and business analysts now expect nanotechnology to revolutionise the pharmaceutical, medical devices, diagnostics and imaging sectors with annual markets of billions of pounds likely within five years.

This course is the first in a number of short professional training modules in the field of nanomedicine being prepared jointly by the IoN, the acknowledged leaders in nanotechnology information in Europe and Cranfield University, the UK’s leading postgraduate university and a leader in the provision of short professional courses. It has been designed to provide practising clinicians, researchers and industry specialists with a broad overview of the main topics, areas of research and issues within nanomedicine.

The course was presented by Professor Shervanthi Homer-Vanniasinkam (Consultant Vascular Surgeon at Leeds General Infirmary, Clinical Sub-Dean of Leeds University Medical School and Professor of Translational Vascular Medicine at the University of Bradford), Professor Tony Turner (Distinguished Professor of Biotechnology and Professor of Biosensor Technology at Cranfield University) and Richard Moore (Manager of Nanomedicine and Lifesciences at the Institute of Nanotechnology).

This course will be run again in the future. Details of forthcoming one-day nanomedicine courses can be found at :
