Nanomedicine, the medical application of nanotechnology, is a new, diverse and rapidly-growing field. The colloid, polymer and interface sciences have their part to play, in areas like drug, protein, gene and peptide targeting and delivery, nanoparticle targeting, and the control of bioadhesion for delivery at mucus membranes, especially. Many soft-matter scientists are now involved in developing new concepts and materials applicable to nanomedicine in one way or another and the one-day symposium will show-case some of the latest work. Talks from five distinguished guest speakers will be followed by the 2012 McBain Medal Lecture, the title of which provides that for the symposium.McBain Medal 2013 Lecture
The McBain Medal is an early-career award offered jointly by the two sponsoring groups. The 2012 McBain Lecture will be given by Dr Vitaliy Khutoryanskiy of the University of Reading. Dr Khutoryanski has rapidly gained an international reputation for his imaginative use of polymer and colloid science in the development of novel materials for biomedical applications. His research interests include water-soluble polymers and hydrogels, mucoadhesive polymeric materials, stimuli-responsive polymers and polymeric nanomaterials for applications in drug and gene delivery and coatings.
