the 2nd International conference on Nanomedicine meets the Tumor MicroEnvironment will be held onsite on may 8-10, 2023
We are delighted to announce that the 2nd International conference on Nanomedicine meets the Tumor MicroEnvironment (NanoTME2023) in collaboration with the International Cancer Microenvironment Society will be held onsite 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.
In 2021, we organized a successful online conference (https://www.nanotme.nl/program-2021/). Considering the excellent quality of the speakers and enthusiastic response from the participants, we are delighted to organize this conference in-person in 2023.
The conference venue will be the UPark hotel on the campus of the University of Twente.
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.
SCIENTIFIC TOPICS OF THE CONFERENCE WILL INCLUDE:
- The tumor immune microenvironment
- Targeting the metastatic tumor microenvironment
- Targeting cancer-associated fibroblasts
- Imaging and diagnostics of the tumor microenvironment
- Targeting extracellular matrix
- Microbiomes in the nanomedicine era
- Nano-immunotherapy and nanovaccine
- Nanomedicine towards clinic
- 3D bioengineered models for TME
Besides the invited expert speakers, several short oral presentations will be selected from the submitted abstracts.
A lively poster presentation will be held on 9th May, Tuesday evening. Poster abstract submission will be available soon.
Several best posters and oral talks selected from the submitted abstracts will be awarded during the conference!
The Organizing Committee cordially invites you to come to the Netherlands and to participate in this unique international conference on “Nanomedicine meets the Tumor MicroEnvironment”.
Please save the date in your calendar and disseminate this announcement to your colleagues.
