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 recently held our inaugural Round Table Discussion at the American Academy of Dermatology Annual Meeting, on March 21st, 2015. A select panel of experts from dermatology, industry and media reviewed the opportunities and challenges of photoprotection in contact dermatitis, rosacea, nail disorders/treatments, use in pediatric patients, vitiligo, genodermatoses, regulatory, industry, and cosmetic dermatology. The video recorded proceedings can be found at Dermatology News. We look forward to seeing everyone in Washington DC in 2016!
Nanotechnology was heavily represented again at the 2015 American Academy of Dermatology Annual Meeting. An entire forum dedicated to nanotechnology was held on March 20th, covering sunscreens, nanomaterials for skin and soft tissue infections, and malignancy.
The Nanodermatology Society's official media partner is Nano Werk. Please check out this site for up to date information on all things nano
