More than 100 researchers and students from across the globe, including researchers from Purdue University in the US, will participate in the symposium organised by the city-based Centre for Cellular and Molecular Biology (CCMB).
''Pharmaceuticals and other aspects of healthcare are major beneficiaries of the nanotechnology revolution sweeping our world today.
''Novel formulations, tissue engineering and tools of nanoscience are changing our world's healthcare system.
The symposium will foster new links and new possibilities in the next frontier of health and medicine,'' Conference Speaker and Dean of Purdue's College of Pharmacy, Nursing and Health Sciences Craig Svensson said in a release here.
''We're excited that the CCMB is partnering with Purdue for this scientific event. Our centre brings real strengths to the partnership with Purdue as a government-led research centre that serves as a national laboratory of higher education and applied research with 150 students and more than, 200 scientific staff members,'' Dr N Madhusudhana Reddy of the CCMB said.
