Alessia’s experiences during Belgium’s lockdown

Last March I started my PhD on the development of a biosensing platform for lectin detection related to cerebrovascular disease using nanoplasmonics in the unit Health at VITO. In the last period I have been overwhelmed by COVID-19, just like everyone else. It came suddenly, and we had to face several challenges. Within a few … Read more

Riccardo’s (shortened) secondment in Milan

Starting from CICbiomaGUNE in San Sebastian I arrived in Milan for my first secondment in order to synthesize a sugar and attaching it to a linker that I will use for decorating gold nanoparticles. Initially it has been hard to leave the place where I was used to live, leave my routine, my friends and … Read more

The aim of the Wiki area is for the ESRs to offer all audiences, and in particular non-experts, a platform to learn about the project and related topics on the whole. We have created comment sections within the Wiki which allows anyone to ask questions or add comments which can be discussed and added (if … Read more

New publication in Materials Horizon

The paper “Ice recrystallisation inhibiting polymer nano-objects via saline-tolerant polymerisation-induced self-assembly” by Panagiotis Georgiou (ESR 3, University of Warwick⁩) has been published in Materials Horizon. The manuscript describes the process to make saline-tolerant polymer nanomaterials that can be used as ice inhibitors via polymerisation-induced self-assembly.
