Nanomaterials: Inflammation and Cancer Symposium

Date: 12 December 2023
Time: 10:45 - 16:05

The immune response of acute inflammation is vital for wound healing and fighting infection. Dysfunction of those same immune response cells, however, can lead to chronic inflammation, which is associated with an alarming range of conditions and diseases, including arthritis, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, and cancer. In addition to biochemical pharmacology, advanced materials have found roles in biology and medicine, including inflammation and cancer, for biophysical routes to addressing disease. This ½-day Symposium brings together experts in cancer and inflammatory response who employ nanomaterials in novel ways to interact with cells and tissue in such ways as to suppress tumour progression and/or control the inflammatory response. Cosponsored by Boston College, the All Island Cancer Research Institute (AICRI), the Ireland-America Science Forum (IASF), and AMBER -Trinity College Dublin, this gathering of minds is an opportunity to share recent advances and forge new collaborations at a critical materials-medicine nexus.
