2021 Workshop

14–15 October 2021:
58th Annual CMS meeting

International Workshop on Clay Minerals in Healthcare Applications

Renowned experts were among those contributing to diverse aspects on this topic. Discussions ranged 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 was 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 took place over two days: 14th–15th October.

At the end of the first day’s scientific proceedings,  we had the annual CMS Business Meeting, led by President Jeff Greathouse. 

A formal report of the event will follow presently. Our thanks to all of the presenters and the delegates.
