The Nature Conference "Microrobots and Nanorobots for Biotechnology" will take place May 25-27 as a virtual event: Presented by IFW Dresden, Nature, Nature Physics, Nature Nanotechnology, Nature Materials and Nature Communications
Nanotechnology research has had a huge impact upon biomedicine: At the forefront of this area are micro and nano devices that use active/controlled motion to overcome the obstacles and limitations of current passive systems. This conference aims to bring together researchers to explore the current ongoing research in the related fields, determine areas of needed development and allow for the exploration of different approaches from different points of view. The conference also aims to identify the current weaknesses of the passive systems and how micro/nano robots can be used to overcome these. With a mixture of invited speakers and panel discussions, this conference will cover a range of topics from fabrication techniques, methods of locomotion to exploring the current applications being used in vitro and in vivo such as imaging, analytical devices and drug delivery to mention but a few.
