The 2nd International Conference on Nanomaterials Applied to Life Sciences 2020 (NALS 2020) will be held in Madrid (Spain) on 29th-31st January 2020 at the Excellence Campus of Universidad Autónoma de Madrid.


The relentless advances made in nanotechnology during the last years call for a multidisciplinary, cross-sectional approach, from the design of new materials to their final application. NALS 2020 intends to establish synergies, foster long-lasting collaborations, and contribute to a fruit-full academia-industry liaison, to work together on the development of disruptive nanomaterials based techniques and devices for applications in the fields of Medicine, Biology, and Environment, among others.
  • Nanomaterials for therapy: hyperthermia, drug delivery, tissue regeneration, gene and cell therapies.
  • Nanomaterials for detection and diagnosis: magnetic, optical, electromagnetic, and electrochemical. sensing; magnetic particles imaging; magnetic pre-concentration; cell/exosome/protein isolation.
  • Nanomaterials for environmental applications: water and air treatment, soil remediation.
  • in silico testing: computer modelling of nanomaterials and their application in medicine and biology.
  • Lab on-a-chip and organ on-a-chip.
  • Metrology and standardisation of nanomaterials.
  • Synthesis, functionalization, bioconjugation, and surface engineering of nanomaterials.
  • Biocompatibility and toxicity of nanomaterials.
  • New applications of nanomaterials in Life Sciences.
