Nanoparticles for bioapplications

1st NanoBioAp School


The 1st School on Nanoparticles for BioApplications will be a satellite activity of the 1oth International Conference on Fine Particle Magnetism (ICFPM19).

The school is designed for senior undergraduate, graduate students and post-docs who are willing to learn more about this fascinating world, covering topics such as synthesis and characterization of nanomaterials, biofunctionalisation, biomedical applications and much more.

Lectures, seminars and discussions will be led by NanoBioAp Research Cluster of Excellence senior members, and international visiting professors. 

The school will be held in Llanes, a beautiful coastal city close to Gijón, where the ICFPM19 will take place. Starting in May 23rd and finishing 25th, it will be the perfect place to start warming up for the conference while learning, discussing hot research topics and networking in a wonderful natural environment. It will be a memorable experience in your starting research career.
