nanomedicine meets the tumor microenvironment conference

the 1st International conference on Nanomedicine meets the Tumor MicroEnvironment  will be held virtually on september 23-24, 2021

We are delighted to announce that the launching of the 1st International conference on Nanomedicine meets the Tumor MicroEnvironment (NanoTME2021) together with the International Cancer Microenvironment Society will be held virtually on September 23-24, 2021. After carefully monitoring the situation related to COVID, the committee has decided to organize the conference virtually.

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 impact patients, which at least partially attributes to the complexity and heterogeneity of the TME. Better understanding of the TME will help improving current nanomedicines for their tumor penetration, interaction with resident and infiltrating immune cells, drug release aspects and new payloads. These themes are the key topics of this conference. On the other hand, the gained knowledge on the crosstalk between different cells within the TME and vast immune landscape provides new opportunities to develop novel nanomedicines in the growing field of immuno-oncology.

The conference will be hosted by the University of Twente.

A special issue is planned by the highly reputed  journal Theranostics (IF: 11.55).

NanoTME2021 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.  


Besides the invited expert speakers, several short oral presentations will be selected from the submitted abstracts. Given the virtual nature of the conference, there will be enormous opportunities for young scientists to present your findings in short pitches.

Several best talks and best pitch presentation prizes will be awarded during the conference!

The conference will be help on the 23rd and 24th of September 2021 in virtual form. All participants are encouraged to contribute to this event.


Registration: Early Bird Registration: until 30 July 2021 (€35), after 30 July till 22 Sep 2021 (€50)


The Organizing Committee cordially invites you to participate in this unique conference on Nanomedicine meets the Tumor MicroEnvironment.
