WIN-CBB Joint Seed Funding Competition

A seed funding competition will be called after the workshop, which will support joint projects in this space to generate initial data points needed for future applications to significant national and international funding programs, which will require diverse teams to address the complex and multi-disciplinary scope of these challenges. Stay tuned for more details.

Health Technologies Mixer

This mixer is a networking opportunity intended to connect health/medical researchers with those in nanotechnology to explore new collaborations within the following research themes:   

  • Advanced Healthcare Platforms (such as wearable or implantable devices for therapeutics and measurements, tissue repair and regeneration, promoting repair and recovery of neural, musculoskeletal and cardiovascular tissue)   
  • Delivery Systems for Therapeutics (for pharmaceuticals and medications, nutrient delivery, food safety and security, etc)   
  • Biomedical Imaging (for cells, tissues, systems, pre-/post clinical assessment and monitoring and other applications)   

The program will include short talks from researchers, a networking lunch, and the announcement of a joint WIN-CBB seed-funding competition designed to assist our researchers in initiating collaborative projects within these 3 research themes to generate the preliminary data needed for future applications to external funding bodies.
