The Arkansas Nano Health Conference features a full agenda with reknown researchers.



Petit Jean Mountain

April 2-4, 2014

The focus of this conference is to advance the use of nanotechnology in healthcare by bringing together leading researchers to bridge talents in science and engineering in nanotechnology with talent in health and medical sciences. Our objective is to develop collaborations and grow partnerships that impact the quality of healthcare in Arkansas and the nation. The Nanotechnology for Health Care Conference will examine different applications for nanotechnology in the health care arena. Topics include nanomaterials engineering for health care, nanomedicine applications (disease diagnostics, therapeutics and prevention), and nanotechnology applications for agriculture.

The Winthrop Rockefeller Institute, where the conference will take place, is located near Little Rock on Petit Jean Mountain. This is one of Arkansas’ beloved nature retreats, and home of Arkansas’ first state park. The mountain offers breathtaking views, enchanting woodland trails, historic spots and natural beauty. Beyond the conference’s topical sessions, we have organized a range of events and activities that will promote fun, interaction, and making a difference.
