In Memoriam

I am deeply sorry to inform you that our collegue and mentor Dieter Falkenhagen passed away on August 11, 2015. Dieter was Professor of Clinical Medicine and Biotechnology at Danube University Krems (Austria), until becoming an emeritus professor in April 2015.

He mentored the BioNanoMed congress series from its beginnings in 2009 and chaired the Scientific Board until 2015.

Dieter was a highly valuable member of the BioNanoMed Team throughout the years. His scientific background as well as his network was most profound. A prominent characteristic of Dieter was his openness to new ideas and his creativity. I was always happy and grateful to have him on the BioNanoMed Team. He was a very honourable and respectable person.

It was a great honour for me to work with him and he will sorely be missed.

You have gone out of our life but you remain in our hearts!

Yours sincerely,
Margit Malatschnig, Techkonnex - High-Tech Promotion
BioNanoMed - Organization Chair

BioNanoMed 2015 - a remarkable success again!

The 6th International BioNanoMed 2015 Congress organized by Techkonnex – High-Tech Promotion in collaboration with the Medical University Graz,  (8 - 10 April 2015) was again a remarkable success! The BioNanoMed has finally established as an internationally recognized congress for the Nano/Bio/Medicine-Community.

The topics including Nanomaterials for Biomedical Applications & Regenerative Medicine, Nanotechnology for Detection, Diagnostics, Therapeutics & Monitorings, NanoPharmaceuticals & Drug Delivery Nanotechnology as well as the key topic Advances in Nano-Oncology led to many inspiring discussions. 

The program of BioNanoMed 2015 included high-level presentations given by excellent speakers! The very interesting panel discussion "Clinical Translation and Commercialization Aspects" was led by Kai Pinkernell, Miltenyi BioTec GmbH.

For the special session Ethics and Societal Issues in Nanomedicine we highly appreciated the presence of two well known speakers who presented their topical view which led to lively discussions!
- Anil K. Patri, FDA -Food and Drug Administration, National Center for Toxicological Research, Washington D.C. Metro Area (USA)
- Mauro Ferrari, the president of the Alliance for NanoHealth in Houston, CEO of Houston Methodist Research Institute in Texas (USA)

63 posters presented by young and active researchers significantly contributed to the high scientific level of the meeting. This was appreciated by the Austrian Erwin Schrödinger Society of Nanosciences by sponsoring and awarding 3 poster prices. 

About 150 participants from 34 different nationalities joined the BioNanoMed 2015 congress.

We are looking forward to welcoming you at BioNanoMed 2016!
As soon as we know the exact date we will announce it here!
