Abstract

Nanomedicine and nanoinformatics are emerging disciplines with substantial challenges ahead. For instance, nanomedicine involves complex and massive data analysis. Nanoinformatics could expand previous experiences in Biomedical Informatics with new features required to study different scientific biological and physical characteristics at a different level of complexity. ACTION-Grid is a project, funded by the European Commission, which aims to the creation of a collaborative environment in biomedical and nanomedical research among countries in Europe, Western Balkans, Latin America and North Africa. In this paper, we briefly review the concepts of nanomedicine and nanoinformatics and then we describe the activities of some of the ACTION-Grid consortium members considering those initiatives related to nanomedicine.
