2021 Workshop

14–15 October 2021:
58th Annual CMS meeting

International Workshop on Clay Minerals in Healthcare Applications

Registration now open (see link at the end of the page).

Because of the global pandemic, the ICC meeting has been postponed from 2021 to 2022. This means that the meeting originally planned for 2022 has been cancelled and a new, online-only event for 2021 has been assembled.

Renowned experts will be among those contributing to diverse aspects on this topic. Discussions will range from historical aspects linked to the traditional medical and pharmaceutical to the use of clays in gene transfection by association of DNA with certain clay minerals.

The programme is based on two special issues of Clays and Clay Minerals on ‘Clay Minerals in Health Applications’ and ‘Clay Minerals in Healthcare’ to be published in 2021 and 2022 and incorporating contributions by colleagues from Qing Yang Institute for Industrial Minerals, China.

The workshop will take place over two days.
