Research and Nanomedicine – 2018 – Third Edition



Venue Program Credits Registration

After the first two editions’ success, the third Research and Nanomedicine workshop will also take place in Pavia, on Thursday, 14th june. This time, too,  this day aims at promoting the sharing of knowledge and experiences among the research groups of the University of Pavia working on nanomedicine and the rest of the athenaeum, hoping to foster new collaborations, synergies and participation to future projects. Three invited talks, respectively from the Nanoechnologies CNR Insitution in Lecce, the Turin and the Milan Polytechnical Universities, will complete the event. This year we will have a practical display ofAnton Paar GmbH’s compact Raman analyzer Cora spectrometer’s use in the medical field.
