Welcome to the MRIC Conference 20 – 22 July, 2013
This unique international conference provides the interdisciplinary platform for
Inorganic Chemists, Biochemists, Physical Chemists, Physiologists, Immunologists, Infectious Disease Researchers and Medical/Clinical Experts
To discuss and learn about the newest developments and application of redox-active inorganic species (metal- and nonmetal-based) as diagnostic tools, adjuvants or therapeutics and their general role in health and disease.
This conference organized by Emerging Field Project “Medicinal Redox Inorganic Chemistry” (MRIC) supported by the “Emerging Fields Initiative” (EFI) of the University Erlangen-Nürnberg, has a goal…
- to increase the impact of (bio)inorganic chemistry research on health and medical sector
- to establish strong interactions between world leading inorganic chemists and biomedical researchers
- to educate new generations of chemists, pharmacists and medical experts to integrate principles of inorganic chemistry into the design of diagnostic tools and therapeutics.
In the era of increased challenges in health care (ageing populations, chronic disease, spiraling costs, etc.) we urgently need to seriously consider innovative alternatives offered by the redox-active inorganic compounds and to substantially diversify the field of medicinal inorganic chemistry setting the stage for visionary approaches in biotechnology and healthcare development.
