HIV/AIDS remains on the top list of killers in South Africa, while the use of potent active antiretroviral therapies are limited by their severe adverse effects, low bioavailability and ineffectiveness. Nanotechnology is an emerging field of science that promises to revolutionise medicine in the 21st century, as it has the potential to radically advance the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of disease, such as HIV/AIDS.
The aim of the symposium is to provide a platform for local researchers and industry to showcase groundbreaking academic and industrial research and promote development in the areas of HIV/AIDS and nanotechnology.
