Cyrill in NanoTox 2018

Cyrill went to NanoTox2018, in Neuss, Germany, to present the PhD work of Dr Leon Newman and Mr Artur Filipe Rodrigues, on brain translocation and pulmonary impact of graphene oxide sheets, respectively. This year a session was dedicated to graphene based materials and their biological impact on Health and the Environment. Lidiane, visiting PhD student in the lab was also attending and presented her work on corona and graphene oxide.


Andrew’s sepsis project won poster prize


Corona team talks at MMPathIC Interdisciplinary Workshop: Engaging Engineers and Physical Scientists

Marilena, Lana and Andrew gave a presentation on the ‘Nanoparticle-based biomarker discovery for sepsis diagnosis’ during a workshop organised by Manchester Molecular Pathology Innovation Centre (MMPathIC) that took place on the 14th of February, in Manchester Citylabs.   



We got a new Dr in the lab

Congratulations to Leon for his successful viva voce examination!



Sinead wins best Post Doctoral presentation at NECTAR 2017

Sinead presented carbon nanomaterials as potential gene therapy delivery vectors at the NECTAR 2017 conference in Dublin from 6-8th Dec. The conference discussed recent research in neurodegenerative diseases, in particular Parkinson’s disease, the focus of Sinead’s research. She presented data on the benefits of carbon nanotubes and graphene oxide sheets to an audience of researchers, clinicians, and lay public with neurodegenerative diseases, and was joint first for best presentation for postdoctoral researchers. Congratulations Sinead!



Nanomedicine Lab team presents in the Graphene Flagship booth @ MEDICA

MEDICA 2017 is largest medical trade fair in the world. Leading the WorkPackage on “Biomedical Technologies” of the European Project “Graphene Flagship”, our team of Hannah, Annie, Kostas and Mauri presented at the booth of the consortium where they helped showcase four demonstrations of innovative biomedical technologies.

During MEDICA we co-organised also the Graphene Connect focused on Biomedical Technologies. The Workshop brought together experts mainly from industry with a series of talks about the different opportunities for graphene in biosensors, implants and bioelectronics, health and neural interfaces.







Filipe is mentioned in an article from SafeNano about Inhaled Particles XII, Glasgow


The conference’s Scientific Committee Chair, Prof. Stone acknowledged that it was “great to see so many new and old personalities interacting and taking the field forward”, highlighting the importance of encouraging young researchers in the field, Graphene NOWNANO CDT student Artur Filipe Rodrigues received accolades.
