Conference “Magnetic nanoparticles and their applications in medicine”

Belgrade, April 4th and 5th 2019. MagBioVin conference “Magnetic nanoparticles and their applications in medicine”

Venue: Rectorate of the University of Belgrade, Studentski Trg 1, Belgrade

One of the activities envisaged in the MagBioVin project is to organize the final international conference entitled “Magnetic nanoparticles and their applications in medicine.” The conference will be held in the period April 4-5. 2019. The tentative version of the conference schedule can be found here. Besides the presentation of the results of the project and increasing the visibility of the research team from Vinca, the main goal of the conference is to strengthen ties with prominent centers in the world dealing with related issues. The goal is to create the basis for the formation of a research consortium that would jointly appear in the future project cycles of the European Commission.

All lectures at the conference are invited and last for 30 minutes, with a scheduled time for discussion up to 10 minutes. The invited lecturers are prominent scientists from leading universities and institutes from Europe and America. Participation of researchers and students from partner institutes from Europe, representatives of pharmaceutical companies and medical institutions from the country and the environment, as well as colleagues from the local academic community dealing with nanosciences, physics, chemistry, biology and cancer research, is expected. The conference is also important for connecting students of doctoral studies from Serbia with students from abroad.
