13th European and Global CLINAM-Summit

The 13th European and Global CLINAM-Summit will take place as online event from May 2 to May 4, 2022: "From Hope to Product  -The Brilliant Prospect in Nanomedicine and Related Fields".

How Many Hopes and Predictions of Development Came True?

The CLINAM Summit, as a globally unique clinical event with members from more than 40 countries brings together since 2008 all stakeholders in nanomedicine, targeted medicine, and precision medicine. Out of the over 2000 interventions from 2008 to date, there are many predictions of near and far-terms of projects, diagnoses, therapy, research, and development of materials and devices. What was achieved? At CLINAM 2022, former invited speakers look back and present their results of today. “From hope to achievements” shall show how brilliant the future in nanomedicine is. Often “nanomedicine” was said to be hype. Today we know that nanotechnology in medicine is the indispensable discipline and ground for further change in health care for all.

Call for Papers and Posters

What are the hot topics in Nanomedicine?

The meeting will highlight recent groundbreaking achievements in the last two years. The rapid development of vaccines for COVID-19 opened up novel arenas of cooperation between researchers, developers, and even between usually competing companies with the regulatory frame authorities. The unseen and revolutionary protective wall against COVID -19 by novel vaccines gives outlook and hope for a profound acceleration of novel drug development in the near future to the benefit of patients. Novel technologies are investigated for applicability to enable and improve health care in countries where therapy until today is unaffordable. Personalized Nanomedicine is the core competence for this. Drug development will be done in novel pathways!
