Welcome to Liposome Research Days 2019!
This Symposium will be held at Sapporo, Japan, on September 15th to 18th, 2019 in the Conference Hall at Hokkaido University.
The Liposome Research Days Conferences started in 1990. The 5th Conference was held in 1996 in Shizuoka, and the 11th Conference was held in 2008 in Yokohama. LRD 2019 will be held in Sapporo, Japan.
The LRD Conferences focus on lipid-containing structures from basic studies, such as the physicochemical properties of liposomes, to clinical applications of drug delivery systems (DDS). Attendees come from all over the world, in particular from the USA, Canada, England, the Netherlands, Germany, Israel, China and Japan, and they range in expertise from beginning students to the original founders of the field. Those who attend the conference will hear presentations at the cutting edge of lipid research from ongoing research to future perspectives.
LRD 2019 in Sapporo will focus on recent progress in liposome/lipid research from basic research in biochemistry/biophysics to clinical application of nanomedicines. Innovations from breakthrough technologies based on liposome/lipid research will be highlighted.
Topics for Liposome Research Days 2019 include:
- 1) Drug delivery
- 2) Nucleic acids/gene delivery
- 3) Vaccination
- 4) Imaging
- 5) Microfluidics/New lipids
- 6) Clinical applications
We look forward to welcoming you to Sapporo and Hokkaido University and to some lively discussions at the conference venue and at the famous Sapporo Beer Garden.
