Nanomedicine in the 21st Century
Saturday May 19 - 8:30 am to 2.30 pm
San Jose State University - Student Union, 1 Washington Square, San Jose, CA

Nanomedicine in the 21st Century: A free event with San Jose State University Including: Breakfast, Tech Showcase, 200+ Student projects, Lunch, Panel Discussion
Keynote Speech: Professor Folarin Erogbogbo, SJSU

Nanomaterials are materials controlled by manipulation of size and shape at the nanometer scale (atomic, molecular, and macromolecular scale) that produce structures, devices, and systems with at least one novel/superior characteristic or property. There is generally excitement when a superior property of materials on the nanoscale that can revolutionize the world are discovered, however undesirable properties (such as toxicity or inefficiency) can dim their prospects of real world applications. This seminar will focus on addressing nanomaterial challenges related to health care. This talk will highlight innovative approaches to creating and understanding nanomaterials for healthcare (cardiovascular disease, diabetes, tuberculosis, and cancer).

This event is free. Go here for registration and parking information.

Recently, IEEE has become aware of email scams or phishing attempts where IEEE volunteers are requested to send money or to provide access to sensitive information which the attackers may then use to conduct fraudulent or malicious activities. Attackers may send you email that looks like it is coming from legitimate sources, using actual names and email addresses of high-level IEEE leaders like Society Presidents, Section Chairs, and Conference Organizers. For example, the attacker may pose as an IEEE volunteer and ask you to transfer money or to reply with bank account information. In these situations, the email address used by the attacker may even look like it is coming from a legitimate address or an address you may be familiar with.

If you receive an email, call or text requesting that you take an action, even if it is consistent with the responsibilities of your current IEEE leadership role, but you are unsure if it is legitimate, please notify your supporting IEEE business unit and make them aware of the situation.

If you have questions or need assistance, please visit our FAQs on Phishing Attempts or reach out to the Contact Center where a service professional can assist you.
