Scope

This Satellite Symposium will focus on the interaction of nanotubes and graphene with cells and tissues in vitro and in vivo, and explore specific applications of carbon-based nanomaterials in the biomedical field. We will highlight the correlation between the specific characteristics of carbon nanomaterials (method of synthesis and manufacturing, purity, type of surface functionalization) and their biological effect in various model systems (immortalized or primary cells, in vivo models). Great emphasis will be placed in determining the therapeutic and diagnostic potential of carbon nanomaterials and the challenges ahead. Moreover, particular attention will be placed on attempts to understand the toxicological and environmental risks posed by use of carbon nanotubes.
