Harnessing Physical Forces for Medical Applications Symposium
November 16, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Welcome to the Kyoto University-UCLA International Symposium / 25th iCeMS International Symposium
Harnessing Physical Forces for Medical Applications – The Convergence of Physics, Nanomaterials, Cell Biology and Cancer Research.
- Physical forces: beams, particles, light, magnetic field, and sound.
- Physical forces and cancer therapy: boron neutron capture therapy, and monochromatic X-ray radiation.
- Imaging: MRI, PET, single molecule imaging, and cryoEM.
- Nanomaterials: Stimuli-responsive nanomaterials.
- How Physical force is used in biology: contractile nanotube system, and cell surface and membrane.
- How cells and organs interface with nanomaterials.
- New industry and commercial development: innovation, and medical instrumentation.
