Is Nanomedicine the Future for Modern Medicine?
Speaker: Professor Matt Trau, Australian Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology
We are living at a time of unprecedented technological change. The recent completion of the human genome project has heralded a new era of molecular- and genetic-based medicine. Numerous advanced in Nanotechnology offer the possibility of cost-effective, miniaturised devices for a plethora of medical applications. How will the fusion of these new developments in Nanotechnology with Biology affect Modern Medicine and the Health care sector? What new medical breakthroughs are starting to appear on the Horizon from the new field of Nanomedicine? What are some of the ethical issues which we may confront as these technologies become available? In this lecture, a range of these topics shall be introduced and explored.
