Submit now!

Confirmed invited speakers at Faraday Discussion 175 include:

Peter Dobson (Introductory)
University of Oxford
Mostafa El-Sayed (Closing)
Georgia Institute of Technology
Paul Alivisatos
Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
Kerry Chester
UCL Cancer Institute

Themes at FD 175 will be:

  • Noble metal NPs: Novel synthesis of Au and Ag NPs, for example, and better understanding of surface chemistry and interactions between NPs and ligands
  • Quantum dots: Novel syntheses and novel biofunctionalisation to enhance quantum yield of quantum dots, as well as being a protective layer for biomedical applications
  • Magnetic NPs: Novel syntheses for enhanced magnetic properties and functionalisation for specific targets in vivo
  • Carbon nanotube & graphite/graphene and other NPs: There is very limited literature on biomedical applications of this type of material. Therefore, biofunctionalisation is a very important aspect of this research topic

The Scientific Committee for Faraday Discussion 175 look forward to seeing you there!
