FD175: Physical Chemistry of Functionalised Biomedical Nanoparticles – Abstract deadline 9 December 2013

The deadline for oral abstract submissions to Faraday Discussion 175 has been extended to the 9 December 2013.

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
Hedi Mattoussi
Florida State University
Paul O’Brien
The University of Manchester
Edman Tsang
University of Oxford
Christian Plank
Technical University of Munich
Oliver Reiser
Universität Regensburg
Ivan Parkin
University College London

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!
