Webinar “Italy-Japan nanotechnology approaches to therapies and regenerative medicine”

The Embassy of Italy is organizing on February 14, 2022 from 17:00 to 19:00 (JST) a webinar on Zoom platform titled “Italy-Japan nanotechnology approaches to therapies and regenerative medicine”.

Ever since its inception about half a century ago, Nanotechnology – i.e. science, engineering, and technology conducted at the nanoscale (1-100 nm) – introduced new materials and devices that had a revolutionary impact on our societies. In particular, nanomedicine, which is the medical application of nanotechnology, is considered a promising tool for drug delivery, precision therapy, in vivo imaging and diagnosis, but with limited clinical applications yet. Recently, nanotechnology has been applied with encouraging results also in regenerative medicine. Japan and Italy are leaders in these fields and the aim of this event, held under the framework of the Italian Research Day in Japan 2022 and of the Memorandum of Cooperation in the Field of Health and Medical Sciences between the Japan’s Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare and Italy’s Ministry of Health, is to showcase the research excellence in both countries on the use of nanotechnology for advanced medical treatments.
