Summit Anchor Event During Nano-Week 2006

July 28, 2006

The Cleveland Clinic, ASM International, and the Nano-Network have announced they will partner to host the Materials, Medicine, and Nanotechnology Summit as part of Nano-Week 2006, a five-day exploration of how nanotechnology is changing our world.

The anchor event will be held Oct. 2-5, 2006 at the InterContinental Hotel and MBNA Conference Center in Cleveland, OH and will focus on nanotechnology advancements in materials and medicine. The event is comprised of the biennial Cleveland Clinic NanoMedicine Summit and ASM’s annual Materials & Processes for Medical Devices (MPMD) Conference and Exposition.

“Holding our two successful and respected events as a blended event has resulted in a more comprehensive technical program,” said Shuvo Roy, Ph.D., Co-Director of the Clinic’s BioMEMS Laboratory. “Materials, Medicine, and Nanotechnology has evolved into a multidisciplinary scientific, applied research and networking summit for nanotechnology and MEMS researchers, biomechanical and materials scientists and engineers, surgeons and clinicians.”

The summit will feature a world-class lineup of medical device engineers, nanotechnology researchers, and the leading medical practitioners in the fields of cardiology, neurology, oncology, and orthopedics.

On Monday, Oct. 2, ASM will offer materials and process-related training courses for engineers and physicians who work with medical devices, with CME accreditation.

Tuesday, Oct. 3 will offer the first blended technical programming from the Clinic and ASM, covering the spectrum of materials-related challenges and opportunities in medicine, from traditional materials to next generation and nanomaterials.

On Wednesday, Oct. 4, and Thursday, Oct. 5, the summit will explore innovative strategies for translating recent advances in nanotechnology research into clinical practice and biomedical investigation. A focus on clinical BioMEMS and nanotechnology will drive the presentations.

Exhibits on Tuesday and Wednesday will feature advances in materials and processes for medical devices, from the standpoint of both manufacturers and suppliers.
