NanoTME Conference

The 2nd International conference on Nanomedicine meets the Tumor MicroEnvironment (NanoTME2023) in collaboration with the International Cancer Microenvironment Society will be held on May 8-10, 2023.

This focused conference aims to bring together leading academic and industrial scientists, young researchers and students to share their research and expertise on different aspects of nanomedicine and the tumor microenvironment (TME). The nanomedicine field has been providing novel tools for better diagnosis and treatment of cancer. However, it has faced several challenges in clinics to make a real impact to cancer patients, which partially attributes to the complexity of the TME. Better understanding of the complexity of TME will certainly help improving current nano-medicines in different aspects such as tumor penetration, drug release behavior, and their targeting ability to modulate different cells within TME such as immune cells. Besides improving the efficiency of nanomedicine, latest developments in the field of the TME will be discussed which will open up new opportunities for academic researchers, industries and other stakeholders from the TME field. Furthermore, gained knowledge on the crosstalk between different cells within the TME and vast immune landscape will provide new insights to the nanomedicine field.

NanoTME2023 has invited leading scientists from both fields to present their latest research and have interactive discussions. The conference will be characterized by minimal cost, excellent science and ample opportunity for discussions.
