VII Conference on AFM for Life Sciences and Nanomedicine

Between 11-15 April 2016, Porto receive the VII Conference on AFM for Life Sciences and Nanomedicine.

Building up on the success of the previous editions, this year’s event will bring closer specialists from cell biology and medical science to materials science and physics, to discuss the latest technological advances and applications of AFM in the field of Biomaging, Mechanobiology, Health and Disease, and Nanomedicine.

The Conference will be hosted by i3S/INEB (Instituto de Investigação e Inovação em Saúde/Instituto de Engenharia Biomédica) at the Auditorium of Biblioteca Municipal Almeida Garrett, during four days and preceded by a workshop on AFM training (held on April 11).

Guest Speakers and Invited Speakers lectures, as well as oral and poster presentations will take place, and participants will be encouraged to bring questions that may contribute to the advancement of knowledge in the field of AFM for Life Sciences. Best oral and poster presentation will be awarded.
