A conference in Rome

      Comments Off on A conference in Rome

Stefania Meschini, Vice President of the Italian Microscope Society / SISM / and senior member of the Italian Institute of Health (Istituto Superiore di Sanita) sent us an invitation for a conference held  between June 19-20, 2019 in Rome.

Conference title:

Therapeutic Nanoproducts: From Biology to Innovative Technology

As the title indicates, the program can be interesting to both material science and medical researchers, as today medical science  cannot succeed without nanotechnology, and more and more breakthrough are expected.

One such area is the so-called multi-functional use of extracellular vesicles.
They are released from various cells, their diameter is in the 50 nm – few microns range, and although some of their groups can be used for diagnostic tests already today,  many details should be revealed till their wide-range application.
Several lectures will be given at the conference on their study and applicability.
The importance of super-resolution microscopic techniques in this field is obvious, however its application  is also challenging and the need for collaboration between practitioners in different fields is unavoidable.
