Nanotechnology has attracted significant global media and cultural interest, but did you know that its use in healthcare has been helping patients for many years – or that the University of Liverpool is a leading innovator in this field? This event will provide an insight into this fascinating area of science, which has the potential to dramatically improve care for people experiencing a range of health problems.

Professor Steve Rannard from the Department of Chemistry will explain how the University of Liverpool Nanomedicine Partnership has been working towards a range of novel therapeutic candidates over the last nine years, with a focus on chronic dosing and infectious disease. He will highlight some of the successes and also explore the scope of nanomedicine to further transform healthcare.

A drinks reception will follow the lecture.
