Introduction – The Conference at a Glance

In the previous eight years, the CLINAM Summit grew to the largest in its field with 12 presenting Noble Laureates and more than 500 participants from academia, industry, regulatory authorities and policy from over 40 countries in Europe and worldwide. With this success and broad support by well 31 renowned collaborating initiatives, the CLINAM‐Summit is today a most important marketplace for scientific exchange and discussions of clinical, regulatory, political and ethical aspects in this field of cutting‐edge medicine. The CLINAM Summit emerged as exquisite forum for translation from bench to bedside for European and international networking, for industrial collaboration between companies, with academia, and as point‐of‐contact with customers. The summit is presently the only place to meet every year the regulatory authorities from all continents to debate the needs of all stakeholders in the field. CLINAM 9/2016 continues with its tradition to cover the manifold interdisciplinary fields of Clinical and Targeted Nanomedicine in major and neglected diseases. As special focus area, CLINAM 09/2016 adds translation and enabling technologies, including, cutting‐edge molecular profiling, nano‐scale analytics, single cell analysis, stem cell technologies, tissue engineering, in and ex vivo systems as well as in vitro substitute systems for efficacy and toxicity testing. CLINAM 09/2016 covers the spectrum of Nanomedicine and Targeted Medicine from new materials and enabling technologies over diagnostic and therapeutic translation to clinical applications in infectious, inflammatory and neurodegenerative diseases, cancer and regenerative medicine to societal implications, strategical issues, and regulatory affairs. The Summit is divided into four tracks in parallel and provides ample possibilities for exhibitors to make decision maker contacts. The Nobel Laureate Prof. Stefan Hell will open the Summit. Participants are invited to bring samples to test the Stimulated Emission Depletion (STED) Microscopy within the exhibition. Live Testing the STED Microscope The presence of a STED Microscope will give for participants of CLINAM the possibility to bring samples and to investigate the revolutionary visibility. All participants get a link for label protocols before the Summit which gives information how to prepare the samples. STED Microscopes are currently in the market by the companies Abberior and Leica. The initiative to enable people to investigate comes from CLINAM in cooperation with Beckman Coulter, Leica and Abberior.

 The Foundation

The European Foundation for Clinical Nanomedicine is a non-profit institution aiming at advancing medicine to the benefit of individuals and society through the application of nanoscience. Aiming at prevention, diagnosis, and therapy through nanomedicine as well as at exploration of its implications, the Foundation reaches its goals through support of clinically focussed research and of interaction and information flow between clinicians, researchers, the public, and other stakeholders. The recognition of the large future impact of nanoscience on medicine and the observed rapid advance of medical applications of nanoscience have been the main reasons for the creation of the Foundation.

Nanotechnology for Medicine

Nanotechnology is generally considered as the key technology of the 21st century. It is an interdisciplinary scientific field focusing on methods, materials, and tools on the nanometer scale, i.e. one millionth of a millimeter. The application of this science to medicine seeks to benefit patients by providing prevention, early diagnosis, and effective treatment for prevalent, for disabling, and for currently incurable medical conditions.
