About

In its 2021 Scientific Meeting, the NanoMedicines Innovation Network (NMIN) will gather its pan-Canadian teams of experts, their partners and collaborators, together with other stakeholders, to advance:

  • NMIN’s innovative research and commercialization strategies for the development, translation and clinical application of nanomedicine-based diagnostics and therapeutics to benefit patients, the national health research ecosystem, and the Canadian economy;
  • NMIN’s building of capacity in the next generation of nanomedicine researchers and entrepreneurs to strengthen Canada’s position as a global leader in nanomedicines innovation; and
  • networking and collaboration among researchers, clinicians, trainees, industry and government.

NMIN’s mission is to develop novel therapeutics to cure high-burden human diseases and new diagnostics to detect disease more precisely; to commercialize these products to bring health and economic benefits to Canadians; and to train the skilled workforce required by the growing nanomedicines industry. NMIN is funded by the Government of Canada through the Networks of Centres of Excellence (NCE) Program.

This is an in-person event.

This event immediately follows NMIN’s first Trainee Symposium, being held at the same venue.
