2018 NanoFANS Forum
Tuesday, October 16, 2018, 11:00 AM - 2:30 PM EDT
Category: Industry Partner Events

The NanoFANS Forum is a symposium event with presentation of topics at the intersection between life sciences and nanotechnology. The NanoFANS forum started at the Institute for Electronics & Nanotechnology @ Georgia Tech in 2008 and the acronym, FANS,stands for Focusing on Advanced Nanobio Systems. The purpose of the forum is to connect the medical/life sciences/biology and nanotechnology/engineering communities. The goal is to communicate to researchers what capabilities micro- or nano- technology may offer them and to foster interdisciplinary research activities. The NanoFANS forum has been attended by both Georgia Tech and external participants from academia, industry, and government organizations. Seventeen events have been hosted from 2008 engaging about 50+ faculty pioneers and over 1000 attendees. The fall 2018 NanoFANS scheduled for October 16thfrom 11:00 AM - 2:30 PM, will focus on “Medical Robotics.” Medical robotics has been instrumental in revolutionizing medical diagnosis and therapy for the past few decades and is a fast growing area of research that may offer promising results in the healthcare delivery. The symposium will be helpful in learning about the current trends in medical robotics and its applications in healthcare.

We are fortunate to have Dr. Jaydev Desai (Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech), Dr. Chethan Pandarinath (Professor of Neurosurgery, Emory Medical School and BME, Georgia Tech), Dr. Azadeh Ansari (Professor of Electrical & Computer Engineering at Georgia Tech), and Dr. Jun Ueda (Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Georgia Tech) speak to us on their current research topics in the area of “Medical Robotics.” Please find attached event agenda to know more about the event.
