by Àlex Argemí

Join this online conference about nanotech-based diagnostics in emergency situations. The event, with Phantoms Foundation and ICN2 researchers leading the organisation committee, will be held on 6 May. Register before 30 April to get an early bird discount.

“Biosensors for Pandemics: Reliable and efficient nanotech-based diagnostics in emergency situations” is an Online conference that will address the main problems that the scientific community is facing in the times of COVID-19 pandemics. This 1-day event will be held online next 6 May and will consists of about 10-12 keynotes, including some of the best experts in the field. Register to join this unique opportunity to get updated scientific information about how biosensors science is tackling with the COVID-19 disease.

The event is organised by Phantoms Foundation, sponsored by the ICN2 and with ICREA as partner institution. Its Organising Committee is formed by Antonio Correia, from Phantoms Foundation, ICREA Prof. Arben Merkoçi, Group Leader of the ICN2 Nanobioelectronics and Biosensors Group, Prof. Laura Lechuga, Group Leader of the ICN2 Nanobiosensors and Bioanalytical Applications Group, with ICREA Prof. Stephan Roche, Group Leader of the ICN2 Theoretical and Computational Nanoscience Group, acting as the event International Scientific Committee.

The idea behind this event is to get together worldwide well known experts in biosensing technologies who are working in COVID-19 diagnostics or leading technologies with a great application potential in the near future. This conference is also addressed to specialists in virology, epidemiology and other health areas and communication technologies that are crucial for guiding biosensing community and their diagnostics ideas.

Register before April 30 to benefit from an early bird discount.
