Nanomedicine Partnering Mission to US

    Nano Connect Scandinavia and Medicon Valley Alliance invites you to join a partnering mission in January 2012 to the two most interesting nanomedicine clusters in the U.S, North Carolina and Massachusetts.

    The program includes visits to some of the world’s leading universities, research groups and biotech companies working within nanomedicine.

    Massachusetts is home to a biotechnology cluster that is second to none. There are more than 480 biotechnology companies in Massachusetts and 277 of those are developing therapeutic drugs. The cluster has some of the most interesting nanomedicine companies and academic research centers in the world including the MIT-Harvard Center of Cancer Nanotechnology Excellence and the WYSS Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University.
    North Carolina is also known throughout the world for its life science industry and has the third largest concentration of biotech companies in the US. The cluster has approximately 70 nanotech companies and 35 nanomedicine companies and is repeatedly been recognized as one of the leaders in nanotechnology in the US. A total of 35 nanotech university research centers as well as major research parks are also located in North Carolina.

    The Nanomedicine Partnering Mission is an opportunity to meet new partners and gain insight on the latest research and best practice within nanomedicine in the US.
