We are establishing an online seminar series to foster exchange and interaction between the members of the group. Each seminar comprises two talks followed by a lively discussion of questions and your needs.

The seminar series focuses on 4 areas

Each seminar covers two of the four areas.
    introduce novel techniques and experimental concepts to combine nanomedicine and multiscale imaging for therapeutic and diagnostic approaches.
    update on clinical applications of IGDD and discussion on improving the transfer of preclinical results into the clinic.
    introduce products/solutions of small and large companies that support finding the right (imaging) solution. Moreover, many (inter)national grant opportunities demand for public-private partnerships: seminars shall provide you with further insights into industrial innovations/solutions and support interaction.
    discussion on recent publication in the IGDD field.

Suggestions/wishes from members are very welcome – just email us!
