The IEEE-NANOMED (IEEE International Conference on Nano/Molecular Medicine and Engineering) conference series is an annual conference organized by the IEEE Nanotechnology Council to bring together world-leading researchers focusing on the advancement of basic and clinical research in medical and biological sciences using engineering methods related to MEMS, Nano and Molecular technologies.  The conference will deliver essential and advanced scientific and engineering information in the applications of MEMS/NANO/Molecular technologies in medicine and biology to its participants. This conference aims to bring knowledge to all players in the field – academics from both medical and engineering professions, industrial and clinical researchers, pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, regulatory authorities and others across the medical, scientific and engineering communities.

The field of Nanomedicine is still in a very infant stage. However, in the next few years there will surely be much more exciting developments across medical science, engineering, chemistry and physics in this area. Diverse researchers working together under the Nanomedicine umbrella will produce findings with potential medical uses: preventing, diagnosing and treating human diseases, as well as relieving pain. IEEE-NANOMED is to provide opportunities for the most updated advances in these areas to be disseminated as the frontier scientific and engineering knowledge unfold, and help to shape the future of medicine and biology in this exciting era.

Papers presented at IEEE-NANOMED 2010 will be selected to publish in a special issue of the peer-reviewed NANOMEDICINE (Elsevier) journal (Impact factor: 5.440) (http://www.nanomedjournal.com).
