We are pleased to announce the IBS Conference on Frontiers of Nano-Bio Interface Science to be held in the Avison Biomedical Research Center at Yonsei University located in the fine city of Seoul, South Korea on 23 September, 2016.

IBS Conference on Frontiers of Nano-Bio Interface Science 2016 will provide an open forum that brings together prominent scientists and scholars of the scientific community to present the latest research and discuss common themes and provide understanding of the latest advances that are shaping the ideas in this emerging field.
The Conference will be organized around a series of themes from chemistry and biology to nanoscience.

Those who should attend include researchers from academia and next-generation scientists in Korea who are seeking to discuss their science with great minds.

Please save the date for this exciting event, and follow http://ibs2016.cafe24.com/2016/nanomed/ to view the latest updates of abstract submissions, and the highly recognized invited speakers of the scientific program.


We are looking forward to sharing insight and having lively discussions on nanoscience. 

Date & Venue

Date : Sep23 (Fri), 2016

Venue : ABMRC, YONSEI University, Seoul, Korea


Principles from chemistry and biology have long been the primary choice in the observation and control of biological systems. We now see that nanoscience is rapidly emerging as key tools for controlling biological systems. In this IBS conference, we will invite frontiers to hear the latest advances that are shaping the ideas in this emerging field. This conference is also committed to providing next-generation scientists in Korea with an opportunity to discuss their science with great minds.
