5th NanoScientific Forum Europe

The Scientific Committee of the NanoScientific Forum Europe warmly invites visitors to the 5th NanoScientific Forum Europe (NSFE 2022), which will take place on October 6-7 under the scientific lead of selected academic institutions in Europe and with a kind support of industrial nanotechnology partners. The event will be held in a virtual form, opening its stage to the global SPM audience.

The research focus of the 5th NSFE 2022 will be laid on wide range of Scanning Probe Microscopy (SPM) applications and techniques that empower to transform life standards. Participants will talk about emerging nanomaterials for advanced technologies, functional surfaces, and hybrid materials as well as innovative methods in nanotechnology and correlative microscopy.

"AFM techniques such as Kelvin probe force microscopy can provide unique insights on electronic properties of functional polymer samples at the nanoscale. With the ongoing, fast- paced progress in AFM research, the NSFE gives a great overview on recent developments and is an amazing opportunity particularly for young researchers to exchange ideas and connect to leading scientists in their fields," enthusiastically comments Dr. Ilka Hermes from Leibniz Institute of Polymer Research Dresden and the NSFE Committee Member.  

The 2022 NSFE will include keynote and contributed lectures on Emerging Nanomaterials for Advanced Technologies, Functional Surfaces, Advanced Techniques and Automation in SPM and Correlative Microscopy. Live hands-on-sessions on Park Systems AFM instruments will be offered to the SPM users to learn the tips and tricks on various AFM techniques, such as nanomechanical and electrical characterisation, characterisation of soft materials in liquid environment, advanced imaging, high resolution imaging and AFM Automation for research. An exciting virtual social program for networking, exchange and fun is also planned for the NSFE participants.

Supported by Park Systems, the event creates a dialog between the research needs and industrial technology development. You can register here


Covid and beyond: novel approaches to global infectious diseases

The pace of scientific discovery and tool generation during the COVID-19 pandemic has been unprecedented—something with positive implications, not just for COVID and future pandemics, but for global health in general. COVID-focused work has accelerated the de-risking of a variety of approaches and technologies with promise for impact across global infectious diseases, among which, the reduction of mRNA vaccine platforms to practice provides a key example. There are clear lessons to be learned from COVID: about accelerating science with worldwide networks of collaboration and innovation; about the fruitful exploitation of platform technologies; and about the need for equitably distributed and nurtured capacity. It is critical this new pace of innovation and collective action for global infectious diseases continues beyond the current pandemic and is applied to the residual pandemics of HIV, malaria and TB. This meeting aims to capture the landscape change in discovery and translational science driven by the response to COVID-19, focusing on novel approaches to the prophylaxis, therapy and control of infectious diseases.

Protein-RNA interactions

Joint Meeting with Biomolecular Condensates: Emerging Cellular and Biophysical Roles

Ribonucleic acid (RNA) binding proteins (RBPs) are a major category of regulators encoded by more than two thousand human genes. Over the last few years, millions of protein-RNA interactions in a myriad of cellular contexts have been measured by increasingly scalable technologies, providing opportunity for deeper connections with genetics and disease. In parallel, stunning breakthroughs in microscopy and structural methods have revealed fundamental insights into protein-RNA interactions. This meeting addresses growing excitement from both the basic and translational life sciences community in imagining protein-RNA interactions as a treasure trove of new biology and drug targets. The specific aims of our meeting are to (1) provide a forum to assemble multi-disciplinary leaders in various themes in the RNA community to cross-fertilize emerging ideas in fundamental protein-RNA science, (2) introduce a diversity of new-comers to the newest methods and results in the field and (3) introduce and identify new targets and modalities for therapeutic opportunities. This meeting will be held jointly with Biomolecular Condensates which is a natural collaboration as RNA binding proteins play major roles in condensation of protein-RNA/DNA interactions.
