The 2023 Spring E-MRS was held in Strasbourg from May 29 until June 3 2023. Nanoscale and Nanoscale Advances were delighted to sponsor an oral presentation prize for Symposium J: Design and scaling up of theranostic nanoplatforms for health: towards translational studies and we would like to congratulate Mélanie Romain for being the recipient of this prize!
Mélanie Romain is a 3rd year PhD student at the ICB laboratory in Dijon (France). She started her PhD journey after graduating from an international BsC degree at the University of Bordeaux, and then the ENSMAC (ex ENSCPB) engineering school in Chemistry and Physics in Bordeaux. During her studies, Mélanie had the occasion to have different research experiences across the world (Canada, France, Thailand, Netherlands). Her PhD project aims at the synthesis of hybrid nanoparticles to target extracellular vesicles, in collaboration with Femto-ST institute in Besançon. She also works on another project with INSERM institute of Dijon where she synthetizes gold nanorods for targeted phototherapy of cancer cells. Part of this work was presented during the E-MRS Spring meeting 2023, for which she earned the Nanoscale and Nanoscale Advances Oral Presentation Prize from the Royal Society of Chemistry.
