Application Information
Applications for this meeting must be submitted by May 27, 2018.
Please apply early, as some meetings become oversubscribed (full)
before this deadline. If the meeting is oversubscribed, it will be
stated here. Note: Applications for oversubscribed meetings will only
be considered by the conference chair if more seats become available
due to cancellations.

Conference Description
Metals in Medicine is a cross-cutting field that incorporates
scientific advances in inorganic chemistry, cell and molecular
biology, advanced spectroscopy and biophysics, nuclear medicine,
medicinal chemistry, clinical medicine, and other disciplines in ways
that leverage knowledge of metals to prevent, diagnose, and treat
human disease. Recent discoveries in the field have advanced our
collective understanding of the role of metals in medicine,
bioinorganic chemistry, and imaging technologies, which in turn
enhances the potential for the development of metal-based drugs and
drugs that act on metallobiological targets.

The objectives of the 2018 Metals in Medicine GRC: The Indispensable
Role of Metals in Medical Diagnostics, Therapeutics, and Beyond are
reflected in the following specific aims: 1) Leverage the properties
intrinsic to metals and inorganic materials to develop transformative
new chemical and nanoscale entities for use in the diagnosis, imaging,
and treatment of disease; 2) Understand the roles of metals in the
pathological basis for disease and medical treatments through the
development of new systems and optimization of existing technologies;
3) Provide a stimulating and dynamic gathering to engage and inspire
young scientists.Importantly, the program provides a very strong
clinical and translational focus for this rapidly developing field.

Conference Program
The conference will consist of nine sessions, on the topics listed
below. The conference chair is currently developing their preliminary
program, which will include the names of the invited speakers and
discussion leaders for each of these sessions. The preliminary program
will be available by November 15, 2017. Please check back for updates.
