This was the first AACR Special Conference to gather leaders and newcomers in the fields of nanotechnology and nanomedicine. Nearly 200 researchers from around the world gathered in Miami to discuss the latest discoveries in nanoparticle chemistry and formulation, delivery barriers, biomarkers, molecular imaging, therapeutic applications, clinical translation, and safety, each as related to cancer diagnostics and therapy. Dr. Roger Y. Tsien, who shared the 2008 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for the discovery of Green Fluorescent Protein (GFP) and seminal work to design and create fluorescent molecules that enter cells and light up their inner workings presented the opening keynote address.
