MedFuse 2018 has ended
While innovation in the medical space can be daunting or challenging, MedFuse will be a place where both seasoned experts and aspiring talent are welcome together. Not only are there many ways in which the medical field stands to benefit from new perspectives, but there are also many tangential fields to medicine that innovations present in other IoT solutions can serve with fewer barriers. Fields like home monitoring, health and wellness apps, or wearable devices. So if you or your company have ideas, are looking for ideas, or just want to be inspired, MedFuse is the place to come tap into a network of innovators, thinkers, but most importantly, doers. So whether or not you are a trained medical professional, MedFuse is right for you.

Limited Capacity seats available

This talk will a) survey the ways in which nanotechnology is currently being applied for biomedical objectives, and b) look into potential nano-enabled medtech in the near future. Current nanotechnology-based medical solutions include passive devices such as neural monitoring and biosensing; active devices such as neurostimulation and chemical pumps; specialized biomedical materials to allow for in-vivo sensing, imaging, and therapies; and drug delivery techniques based on specialized nanoparticles. Based on current practice, we will look at likely future developments in these technologies.

I will also present a brief summary of the Minnesota Nano Center, which functions as a maker space for developing nanoscale devices and materials. The Nano Center is open for use by researchers from industry and other academic institutions. More information is available at www.mnc.umn.edu.
