conferenceThe Nanomedicine and Drug Delivery Symposium is the key annual event for researchers developing next-generation delivery vehicles — targeted, responsive, biodegradable nanomaterials to make diagnostics more sensitive and drugs more effective

In January 2003 Dr. Alexander Kabanov and Dr. Kazunori Kataoka organized the first nanomedicine meeting in the United States – “The Nanomedicine and Drug Delivery Symposium (nanoDDS).” Since then nanoDDS has been held annually in different locations across North America. Over years it has attracted over 3000 participants from 30 different countries and became one of the most authoritative forums in its field. Each year the meeting comes to a different University campus, thereby promoting knowledge and becoming a major world-class scientific event for its students and scholars. The objectives of nanoDDS are to 1) discuss groundbreaking discoveries and developments in nanomedicine and drug delivery; 2) highlight clinical developments and opportunities for advancing nanomedicine technology to the marketplace; and 3) engage and educate students, postdoctoral trainees and scientists from the local University and all over the world.

The 20th annual Nanomedicine and Drug Delivery Symposium Hybrid Meeting, Fall 2022, Chapel Hill, NC.

The Organizing Committee is delighted to offer underrepresented Minority Fellowships to attend nanoDDS 2022 in person or remote to all the candidates who qualify based on the following criteria:

  • Graduate student or postdoc
  • Hispanic or Latino, American Indian or Alaska Native, Black, or African American, Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander
  • Currently working at a U.S. institution

To apply for the nanoDDS URM fellowship, an applicant should send their CV along with a letter of support from their advisor to the co-chairs.

Please submit your abstract here for poster presentation by August 1st, 2022 or at the following link: tinyurl.com/NanoDDS2022
