ANNIC 2018


4th edition of Applied Nanotechnology and Nanoscience International Conference was organized this year in Berlin and chaired by Prof. Nicola Pinna from Humboldt University of Berlin, Germany. The conference gathered around 300 attendees including many plenary and invited speakers in various fields in nanoscience and nanotechnology.

Natalia Olejnik-Feher abstract was selected as an oral presentation to be a part of smaller symposium organized within a conference, dedicated to colloidal nanocrystals and their applications. This symposium was prepared in frames of the EU-MSCA-RISE project COMPASS. The invited lecturers, all leaders in their fields and experienced scientist, were:

Prof. Andrej Singer - Cornell University, USA (“Nanoscale dynamics in quasi-periodic complex materials”)

Prof. Jonathan Owen - Columbia University, USA (“Real-Time Monitoring of Colloidal Quantum Dot Nucleation and Growth”)

Prof. Teresa Pellegrino - Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia, Italy (“Magnetic Nanoparticles for magnetic hyperthermia and cytotoxic action: from the synthesis to their in vitro and in vivo characterization”)

Dr. Alexander Weber-Bargioni - UC Berkeley, USA (“Investigating the propagation of excitons through inorganic nanocrystal assemblies and 2-D semiconductors”)

Besides the invited lectures in the Colloidal Nanocrystals symposium, Natalia Olejnik-Feher participated in many inspiring talks with two that made most impression on her, given by Prof. Molly Stevens from Imperial College London, UK, who talked about designing nanomaterials for biosensing and regenerative medicine and Prof. James Moon from University of Michigan, USA, with great talk on Nanotechnology for improving cancer immunotherapy.

This conference provided a full opportunity for practice and constructive dialogue with specialists in colloidal nanocrystals field and beyond. It was also an ideal platform for sharing the early results of Natalia work as it was an international forum, constructed of researchers, education scientists, technologists and industry representatives who are experts in the field. During the conference she presented a communication entitled “Dynamic nuclear polarization enhanced solid-state NMR as a powerful tool for probing the surface of nanomaterials with sub-Ångström resolution”.
