    Dichello G., Whitby, R.L.D., Mikhalovsky, S.V. and Sarker, D.K.

    Gennaro Dichello presented team work based on the self-assembly of gold (AuNPs) and silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) - obtained during MRC-funded PhD studies at the university of Brighton (ref: MRC-UB-280711, No. MR/J006661/1) “Nanosystems for targeted drug delivery across the blood-brain barrier".

    The 12th International Symposium on Bioscience and Nanotechnology was held on 14th and 15th November 2014 at the Bio-Nano Electronics Research Centre Annex: Beta on the Kawagoe Campus. The Symposium was supported by the Embassy of France, the Embassy of India and 6 companies. There were 6 keynote lectures given by truly advanced researchers from the UK, France and India, 10 talks given by graduate students from Japan, the UK, France, Hungary, Latvia and Brazil, and 70 poster presentations.300 researchers and students in total participated in the Symposium. The Nanomaterials by Design Group, the University of Oxford, the Physics and Chemistry Unit, L’Université Pierre et Marie Curie (Paris 6) and the Bio-Nano Electronics Research Centre, Toyo University, agreed to initiate a new collaborative research and educational programme based on nanotechnology, which we hope will be supported by the European Commission.
