The Nanodermatology Society (NDS) was established in 2010 to promote a greater understanding of the scientific and medical aspects of nanotechnology in skin health and disease.
The Society is composed of physicians, dermatologists, physicists, chemists, policy makers, regulators, nanotechnology scientists, and students involved in nanotechnology specifically related to dermatology from teaching, to education, to scientific research.
For a brief introduction to nanotechnology in dermatology, take a look at our Patient Handout.
We will be holding a special round table discussion on nanotechnology in photoprotection at the upcoming American Academy of Dermatology Annual Meeting, March 21st at 745 AM, Foothill A, Marriot Marquis San Francisco. A select panel of experts from dermatology, industry and media will com together to discuss the opportunities and challenges of photoprotection in (contact dermatitis, rosacea, nail disorders/treatments, use in pediatric patients, vitiligo, genodermatoses, regulatory, industry, and cosmetic dermatology. Stay tuned for coverage.
Our 4th annual meeting held on March 22nd, 2014 was a huge success. Thank you to our wonderful speakers. A summary of the event can be found here. We look forward to seeing everyone in San Francisco in 2015!
Nanotechnology was heavily represented at this years American Academy of Dermatology Annual Meeting. An entire forum dedicated to nanotechnology was held on March 21st, covering sunscreens, nanomaterials for wound healing, angiogenesis and nanodermatology, laser targeting of skin appendages, and skin barrier function. Media coverage on Dr. Adam Friedman's and Dr. Jack Arbiser's lectures offer a small taste of the extraordinary presentations provided to a standing room only auditorium.
The Nanodermatology Society's official media partner is Nano Werk. Please check out this site for up to date information on all things nano
