Prof. Laura M. Lechuga among invited speakers at SRUK’s commemorative seminar

Under the slogan that the potential applications of nanotechnology are “limited only by our researchers’ imaginations”, ICN2 Prof. Laura M. Lechuga was in Manchester, UK, this month to talk at a seminar organised by the Society of Spanish Researchers in the United Kingdom (SRUK) on the occasion of its fifth anniversary.

The seminar entitled “Tiny Science: the science and applications behind nanotechnology” brought world-renowned researchers in the field of nanomaterials to the Instituto Cervantes in Manchester, including Prof. Laura M. Lechuga, leader of the ICN2 Nanobiosensors and Bioanalytical Applications Group

Talking alongside Prof. Nazario Martín, of the Universidad Complutense de Madrid, and Prof. Nicola Tirelli, of the University of Manchester, Lechuga explained how the use of highly-sensitive nanosensors is enabling early detection of cancer, allergies and bacterial infections.
