Nanomaterials: Inflammation & Cancer Symposium

14 December 2023

We were delighted to co-sponsor the Nanomaterials: Inflammation & Cancer Sympsoium in the PACCAR Theatre Trinity College Dublin on Tuesday 12th December.

The Symposium brought 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) Ireland America Science Forum (IASF) and AMBER Trinity College Dublin, this gathering of minds was an opportunity to share recent advances and forge new collaborations at a critical materials -medicine nexus.
