PREIN-GeneCellNano Networking Seminar
The networking event on December 12, 2022 in VTT premises Espoo is organised to present the activities of the two flagships and to find new shared areas for collaboration in utilising photonics in medical applications and treatments. Photonics provides applications for example in light-activated drug delivery, biophotonic implants and fiber optics utilised in endoscopy.
The GeneCellNano flagship is the Gene, Cell and Nano Therapy Competence Cluster for the Treatment of Chronic Diseases.
PREIN is the Flagship for Photonics Research and Innovation.
The event is free of charge, but requires registration. To registration
