The Synergy Symposium for NanoBioMedicine was held on November 4th and 5th 2019 in Zagreb. The event, co-organized by nanotechnology groups from the Institute for Medical Research and Occupational Health, Faculty of Pharmacy and Biochemistry and Ruđer Bošković Institute, brought together the collaborators from five projects funded by the Croatian Science Foundation.
The projects OrDeN (IP-2016-06-1137), NanoFaces (IP-2016-06-2436), CaPBiomimNanocomp (IP-2018-01-1493), NanoFlavNeuroProtect (IP-2016-06-8415), and NutriNTENSe (IP-2018-01-8119) are focused on nanotechnology and development of new systems for biomedical applications. This event provided the opportunity for researchers to present their work, learn more about the different experimental and theoretical approaches to the nanobiomedical field and create new connections and collaborations. It was also a great occasion for PhD students to show their progress.
The Symposium hosted two invited international speakers that are each renowned experts in their fields of study. Prof Heinrich Lang from the Faculty of Natural Sciences, Technische Universität Chemnitz, Germany held a lecture “From: Small Tailor-made Molecules To: New Materials”. Prof Konrad Kowalski from the Faculty of Chemistry, University of Łódz, Poland presented the lecture “Organometallic Xeno-Nucleic Acid Nucleosides: Synthesis and Biological Activity”. Afterwards, the PhD students from all five projects presented some of their results. The event was concluded with the discussion and networking activities.
