The 5th Annual Institute for Engineering in Medicine Symposium will be taking place August 28, 2012 at the Mayo Auditorium on the University of Minnesota (U of MN) campus. This year’s program, Nanotechnology and Nanomedicine, is one of the most revolutionary fields in modern science.

In the hearing industry alone, many hearing aids are now protected by nanotechnology coatings, which repel moisture inside hearing aid electronics.

During this all day symposium, 17 top researchers at U of MN will be presenting on topics covering tools and materials, basic nanomedical research, clinical applications, and the ethics and future of nanomedicine.

Opening remarks will be provided by Dr Eric Kaler, president of the University of Minnesota, highlighting why this topic is so important to the university, as well as the industrial and local communities.
