Nanomaterials Applied to Life Sciences 2020

The 2nd International Conference on Nanomaterials Applied to Life Sciences 2020 (NALS 2020) is being organized by IMDEA Nanociencia to be held in the Excellence Campus of Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (Madrid,Spain) on 29th-31st January 2020. The first NALS meeting took place in Gijon (Spain) on December 2017 gathering 135 participants coming from 24 countries. NALS events are promoted by the NanoBioAp Cluster, which consists of more than 70 researchers from different Spanish Research Institutions. The NanoBioAp Cluster is chaired by Prof. Carmen Blanco and Prof. Montserrat Rivas, from Universidad de Oviedo (Spain).

The relentless advances made in nanotechnology during the last years call for a multidisciplinary, cross-sectional approach, from the design of new materials to their final application. NALS 2020 intends to establish synergies, foster long-lasting collaborations, and contribute to a fruit-full academia-industry liaison, to work together on the development of disruptive nanomaterials based techniques and devices for applications in the fields of Medicine, Biology, and Environment, among others.

The exciting and lively city of Madrid constitutes a vibrant venue to frame this event due to the excellent communications and leisure offer.  

NALS 2020 will bring together academia and industrial researchers in materials science, chemistry, engineering,  medicine, and biology, to establish synergies, strengthen initiated collaborations and create new ones
