Engineering in Medicine:
Redesigning Cancer Imaging and Therapy

July 11-13, 2011

Thayer School of Engineering and Norris Cotton Cancer Center
Dartmouth College, Hanover, NH

Engineering new tools for cancer imaging and therapy is at the heart of fighting the war on cancer. Tools and techniques need to be developed, with molecular specificity, and taking advantage of the ability to guide the therapy more specifically to seen and unseen targets. This must utilize modalities such as nanotechnology, which could provide a paradigm shifting approach. This conference is designed to bring together researchers from bioengineering and cancer medicine to talk about new imaging tools, molecular targeting approaches, contrast agents, and therapeutic delivery methods. Participation from medical centers, engineering research, comprehensive cancer centers and industry will be represented. Contributed abstracts are welcomed by participants for poster presentation, with a select few being offered oral presentation.

Monday July 11 - Molecular Imaging (Thayer School of Engineering)

Tuesday July 12 - Targeted Therapy (Norris Cotton Cancer Center)

Wednesday July 13 - Nanotechnology in Cancer (Thayer School of Engineering)
