END2CANCER:

Emerging Nanotechnology & Drug Delivery Applications for Cancer

December 5-7, 2018, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

The University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center and the NCI-Designated Stephenson Cancer Center are proud to host the 2018 END2CANCER: Emerging Nanotechnology and Drug Delivery Applications for Cancer conference in conjunction with one-day Hands-on Workshop in Nanotechnology for students who are seniors in high school from December 5-7, 2018 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA.

The focus of the Hands-on Workshop in Nanotechnology will be tailored towards students who are seniors in high school from the state of Oklahoma who are interested in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) programs and interested in pursuing a career in STEM fields. The workshop will enable students to understand the fundamental concepts of nanomedicine and their application to cancer. The curriculum is designed by instructors who are experts in the field of nanotechnology. The workshop will be conducted on December 5th, 2018 from 8 am to 3 pm.

The END2CANCER conference will start the morning of December 6th, 2018 and conclude in the afternoon of December 7th, 2018. The conference will bridge laboratory research conducted in the areas of nanotechnology and drug delivery to clinical application for the detection, diagnosis, imaging and treatment of cancer. The conference will host keynote, plenary and invited lectures by eminent scientists who will discuss new and emerging concepts, technologies and challenges in translating nanomedicine from bench-to-bedside.

Topics to be discussed in the planned thematic sessions include barriers in drug delivery, discovery and applications, biological and non-biological systems as carriers and therapeutics, molecular imaging, biomimetics, immune-oncology, toxicology and clinical trials.

The multi-disciplinary two-day conference will bring together physicians, basic scientists, engineers, physicists, chemists, post-doctoral fellows, high-school and college students, patient advocates, business professionals, educators and technology transfer specialists. Students and fellows will have an opportunity to present their work as a poster presentation and compete for awards.

A special education session titled Meet the Investigators is planned for students, fellows, and young investigators to network and exchange ideas and offer collaborative opportunities during the two-day meeting.

Finally, a special issue commemorating the conference and covering the topics discussed at the conference will be released in the journal Theranostics in the Spring of 2019.

The organizing committee would like to invite you to visit the “Sooner” state of Oklahoma and participate in this exciting conference.
