Nanotechnology is close to application in human medicine. Experiments with disease models have shown promising results and the first clinical trials are ongoing. Doctors are hoping that nanomedicine will provide them with the means to better diagnose diseases such as cancer and adapt the treatment to the individual needs of patients. In order to speed up the development of nanomedical applications, the communication scientist Beat Löffler and the doctor Dr. Patrick Hunziker founded the European Foundation for Clinical Nanomedicine – CLINAM – around a year ago. The first “European Conference for Clinical Nanomedicine” is to be held soon in Basel. BIOPRO Baden-Württemberg has therefore discussed this promising area of application with the two CLINAM founders.
