The Nanotechnology Symposium will be held on 21st February 2020 at World Trade Centre Kuala Lumpur, held in conjunction with the 19th edition of Malaysia Technology Expo. It is jointly organised by Integrative Pharmacogenomics Institute (iPROMISE), Non-Destructive Biomedical and Pharmaceutical Research Centre (NDBPRC), Universiti Teknologi MARA and PROTEMP Exhibitions & Conferences. Malaysia Nanotechnology Association is the official knowledge partner for the event.

Nanotechnology Symposium 2020 gathers the leading experts from across the world to share their nano research findings related to nanocarrier design, processing technology, nanomaterials, nano formulations, manufacturing challenges, nanotoxicology, pharmaceutical /nutraceutical/ cosmeceutical markets, and rules and regulations pertaining to production, distribution, storage, research and commercialization, with therapeutics range from small molecule drugs, bio macromolecular drugs and biologics. The event serves as a platform for industrialists, academicians, scientists, students, administrators and entrepreneurs who have a strong interest in nanotechnology to network and share information and to collaborate on research and business activities.

Nanotechnology has and continues to revolutionize medicine which now can be used to transform drug delivery, wound treatment, gene therapy, diagnostics and almost every area of medicine in time. Advancements with nanobots, smart pills, vaccines, bandages, microscopes that has been evolving to become more portable and convenient and with the potential to improve health outcomes around the world.

Recent study by Allied Market Research has announced that global nanotechnology market to reach $2.23 Billion by 2025 and in Asia Pacific region itself, is expected to grow at the highest Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 12.80%. It has been proven that one of nanotechnology global market’s main drivers are the surging adoption of this technology in medical diagnosis.
