8th – 11th May 2016
Self-assembly_of_iron_oxide_nanocrystals

This 6th conference will consider advances in nanobiomaterials with a special emphasis on synthesis, chacterization including synchrotron and neutron techniques, toxicity and therapeutics. The interaction of nanomaterials with biomolecules, biological interfaces and biofluids will receive special consideration. Numerical approaches providing special insight into nanoparticle interactions will also be covered.

A key topic will be the transport of nanoparticles across barriers such as cell membranes and the blood-brain barrier, as well as transport in and between cells, such as neurons. Such processes give rise to the possibility of using nanoparticles as vectors to deliver therapeutic materials. The goal of this ZING conference is to bring together experts in relevant fields and to animate discussion on the relevance of in silico, in vitro and in vivo tools, and models for the assessment of drug delivery by oral and parenteral routes.

A further topic will be the elucidation of toxicity effects and the link between nanoparticles surface properties, cell response, and the fate of nanoparticles taken up by cells. This issue must be resolved for any widespread application of nanobiomaterials to become effective.

8th – 11th May 2016

Located just 50 metres from the sea, 17km from Varna and with breath-taking views to the Black Sea which accommodates ten small islands, all of them incorporating unique eco systems with amazing flora and fauna. The International Hotel offers an idyllic location to serve as a conference host.

The Hotel offers 2 à la carte restaurants serving fine cultural cuisine. The venue provides the perfect setting to relax. Views of the sea or the park are offered from all the suites. The rooms offer individually controlled air-conditioning and Wi-Fi internet connection. Each room offers a modern bathroom with a bathtub or a shower and a hairdryer. The wellness centre of the complex offers guests of the hotel can use both indoor and outdoor swimming pools.

The new amphitheatre hall at the hotel offers the perfect setting for the conference. The raised, tiered seating ensures everyone will have a perfect view of the conference presentations in comfortable surroundings. Between sessions, or at the end of the day, there are several quiet areas located around the resort to allow continued discussion of the day’s events or to network and forge new working relationships.
