JHU’s Institute for NanoBioTechnology now has a center for Engineering in Oncology.

How fitting, then, that this year’s annual symposium, held May 13, ┬áis entitled Nanotechnology for Cancer Medicine. The keynote speaker is Stephen Baylin, professor of oncology and Deputy Director of the Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center in East Baltimore. His research concerns the DNA of cancer cells.

Check here for an agenda and more details. You can also stop by the poster session in the Clipper Room in Shriver, starting at 1:30 PM.

Are you interested in getting hands-on lab experience and learning about some of the methods being used by the researchers? On May 12, the afternoon before the symposium, four workshops are being offered, highlighting different topics and techniques. Space is limited, so register soon (TracyINBT@jhu.edu or 410-516-5634).

The institute has also created courses, including Animation in Nanotechnology and Medicine. (It even has an animation studio!)

Find out more about INTB on its YouTube channel.

The library’s Engineering Guide has a nanobiotechnology page to help you to find resources about this fascinating and crucial topic.

See you at the symposium!
