Conference Overview

This free international conference is the 14th annual conference in the series that explores recent advances in medicine and pharma.  This year’s conference is focussed on emerging microbial threats, both natural and man-made.  Technologies for the early detection of infectious diseases, environmental pathogens and bioterrorism threats will be emphasized.  A special workshop will highlight critical topics like patent law, regulatory science, legal issues, translational medicine and commercialization activities. The conference will offer networking opportunities to physicians, scientists, engineers, lawyers, business professionals, technology transfer specialists, policy makers and venture capitalists.  All PowerPoint presentations will be fast-paced and focussed, relying upon extensive color graphics and animations to reach the diverse audience.  Coffee breaks and lunch will be provided. Free parking will be available adjacent to the conference venue. There is a very large selection of lodging available close by. The closest airport is in Albany, NY, a 20-minute taxi ride to the conference site.  Numerous books, Lindt chocolate boxes, Wiley $150 book certificate, etc. will be raffled. Poster awards in the amount of $250 will be given. This competition is open to any student, medical fellow, pre or postdoctoral fellow, etc.  Posters may be brought to the conference site on September 19 (no prior submission or registration required).  Conference reports will be published in Future Science OA as well as Journal of Interdisciplinary Nanomedicine.  All speakers/attendees are invited to contribute to these publications as well as to the Pan Stanford Handbook of Clinical Nanomedicine series (volumes 2 and 3).
