NEMB2010: A Multidisciplinary Success!
The ASME 2010 First Global Congress on NanoEngineering for Medicine and Biology (NEMB2010) was held Feb. 7-10, 2010 in Houston, TX. NEMB2010 was the result of an inaugural partnership between the ASME NanoEngineering Council and the Alliance for NanoHealth in Houston, TX. The congress focused on the integration of Engineering Sciences, Mechanical Engineering and Nanotechnology in addressing fundamental problems in Biology and Medicine and in developing devices for the early detection, imaging and cure of diseases.
Approximately 300 abstracts were selected for presentation and discussion at NEMB 2010 and 475 individuals registered to attend. Abstracts were presented by the members of the engineering community, scientists and clinicians involved in the development of new tools and materials in nanomedicine and experts from industry in the field of life sciences in the following areas:
Feedback on the event indicated a successful start and encouragement for further activities in this emerging field.
The NEMB 2010 Chairs would like to acknowledge the support of our generous sponsors and partners. Planning is currently under way for future NEMB events.
