Summary of Meeting:
We are bringing together a distinguished group of scientists whose research covers a broad range of topics, including quantum dots and nanoparticles, nanoliter fluidic systems, single molecule and single cell analysis. Speakers will address a broad range of problems, from basic science to applications in medicine and the life sciences. By bringing together an interdisciplinary group from many fields, including both industry and academia, we hope to bring a new perspective to the rapidly moving frontier of nanotechnology in biomedicine.
