Nano Med, Giga Progress... Be Nursed from Inside !

General description

They all say size doesn't matter... But sometimes it does! Come in Grenoble to discover the possibilities and challenges presented by the recent outcomes concerning nanotechnologies in the field of medicine! Skilled lecturers will teach you everything you need to know about how nanotechnologies can cure you better and faster.

And while the subject of the course is *nano* technologies, you'll be in Grenoble so there will be *huge* parties too! Between a tartiflette and a glass of Chartreuse, you'll discover how we do it in the Alps, in the middle of the moutains!
