Synergy Symposium for NanoBioMedicine

Synergy Symposium for NanoBioMedicine took place at the Faculty of Pharmacy and Biochemistry, University of Zagreb and Institute Ruđer Bošković, Zagreb on November 4th and 5th, 2019. It was organized in cooperation of four Croatian science foundation (HRZZ) projects. On behalf of NutriNTENSe project, PhD student Emerik Galić presented preliminary results about In vitro toxicity assessment of chemically synthesized selenium nanoparticles. The presentations were followed by discussion and cooperative activities of all participants.

Program

Particle Toxicology Conference

From 11th to 13th of September 2019, 12th International Particle Toxicology Conference was held in Salzburg, Austria, with the aim of bringing together toxicology experts from all over the world to discuss safety, applications and research of particle toxicology.

Doctoral candidate Emerik Galić presented his results on nanoparticle toxicity in vitro with the poster titled “Genotoxocity of silver and selenium nanoparticles on human epithelial cells“.The study was conducted by the NanoFaceS group in collaboration with the groups from Universities of Osijek and Graz.
