Crossing Borders in Medical Nanoscience and Biomaterials








When: Friday, March 8th, 2019

Where: Lecture hall: Biomedicum 1, Biomedicum, Solnavägen 9

Welcome to a one-day symposium in Medical Nanoscience and Biomaterials within The Stockholm - Tokyo University Partnership Multidisciplinary collaboration for sustainable development. Talks are presented by internationally leading scientist from University of Tokyo, Karolinska Institutet (KI) and the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH). You are most welcome to participate in this exciting event, to share and gain knowledge in these exciting fields. To expand your network, we encourage you to take the opportunity to present your work in the poster sessions.
