On behalf of the organizing committee, we are pleased to announce that the VYA Inaugural conference on Nanomaterials for Healthcare (NMH) and the 4th Worldwide Meeting of Young Academies (WWMYA) will be held at Duy Tan University, Da Nang, Viet Nam during 29th July and 2nd August 2019.

WWMYAs aim to enhance and facilitate ideas exchange on the establishment and development of National Young Academies (NYAs) and to strengthen networking and collaboration between NYAs on a global level. The meeting is organized in conjunction with a 2 days scientific meeting on Nanomaterials for Healthcare. Cancers and infectious diseases are the two most deadly diseases in Vietnam, and nanotechnology is one of its research focuses. This scientific conference will bring together practitioners, researchers and educators from around the world and will cover synthesis, characterization and medical applications of nanomaterials for cancer and infectious diseases. Presentations and discussions at the conference will be open to collaboration in multi-disciplinary projects, working papers, and funding applications. Therefore, we would highly appreciate all your participation and support to make the conference a success.
