NANOFACTS project coordinator, Dr. Nikola Knežević, participated in the management committee meeting of the COST action NETPORE. The action aims to bridge the gap between fundamental developments and practical applications of technologies based on porous materials. Participation in this action enhances the networking possibilities of BIOS researchers in the area of application of porous nanomaterials.
Mila Djisalov and Teodora Knežić from BioSense Institute are on their extended stay visits at the Vienna University of Technology. Currently, they are participating in a workshop “Microfluidics and Cell Culture”. They are going to design microfluidic chips for cell culturing. The aim of their visit is the development of microfluidic chips for Glioblastoma cell culturing, as well as the development of cancer spheroid-on-a-chip technology for Glioblastoma Multiforme.
A new year has started with great plans for future research and secondments! NANOFACTS consortium met to discuss forthcoming extended stay visits. We would like to thank to all participants who made the meeting successful!
On December 9th, NANOFACTS BIOS members had a meeting dedicated to the 1st secondment, where young researchers presented their experience and results. We are all thankful to have such devoted students and to have a chance to learn from their experiences.
NANOFACTS team members from BioSense Institute participated in the 5th Congress of the “Serbian Association for Cancer Research – SDIR”. It was very useful to hear more about the translational potential of cancer research in Serbia. We hope that NANOFACTS project will contribute to this topic in the future.

Our young researchers are on their extended stay visits at Technical University in Vienna. The first training has been dedicated to glass drilling and the cleaning procedure of glass slices for the fabrication of microfluidic chips. The aim of secondments within the NANOFACTS project is to provide young researchers with opportunities to acquire and extend their knowledge and to learn different technologies.
NANOFACTS members from BioSense Institute and Trinity College Dublin have published a review article with the topic on application of MSNs in cancer theranostics and gene editing, in the prominent Journal of Controlled Release (IF 9.776).

All consortium partners gathered to discuss future secondments and to plan training activities during ESRs visits. We are eager to gain knowledge from the exceptional researchers at the Vienna University of Technology and Trinity College Dublin. Thanks to all devoted participants for sharing great energy. We are very glad to have such an excellent team! Previous Next
