3rd International Conference

"Current Trends in Cancer Theranostics" (CTCT-2017)

June 25-29, 2017
Pakruojis Castle, Lithuania



We are pleased to announce the 3rd International Conference "Current Trends in Cancer Theranostics", which will be held on June 25-29, 2017 in Pakruojis Castle, Lithuania.The main aim of CTCT-2016 is to learn about and share the progress regarding advanced and integrated solutions for bio-imaging and therapy based on nanomaterials. The integration of novel nanoparticles into the biomedical environment has potential to yield highly efficient and cost-effective cancer theranostics. The proposed conference demands multi-disciplinary cooperation between physicists, material scientists, biophysicists, biochemists, physicians and device engineers, and offers excellent possibilities for the translation of innovative solutions into clinical therapies. The main focus of the conference is innovative solutions and novel nanomaterials which can enhance the anticancer therapy efficacy and reduce the healthcare costs.


The meeting will be focused on the following sections:

Section 1: New Biomaterials for Cancer Theranostics - Drug Delivery Agents

Section 2: Tumor Visualization – New ways in Cancer Diagnostic

Section 3: Cancer Therapy - New ways in Cancer Therapy

Thematic Sessions:

• Upconverting nanomaterials for biomedical applications

• Baltics -Japan symposium on nanomedicine (under consideration)
