UBC Chemistry! You’re invited: NanoLytica Symposium

On Thursday, March 14th, 2013 PerkinElmer (in partnership with SFU) will be hosting a FREE educational Symposium on the latest technological advances and analytical techniques in the field of nanotechnology.


Distinguished speakers include nanotechnology experts from academia, government, industry and PerkinElmer – including UBC Chemistry’s Dr. Russ Algar, who will be speaking on Nanoparticles for Biosensing/Therapeutics.

Furthermore, all participants are invited to submit a poster abstract for consideration for presentation at the symposium. This is a great chance for students to share their ideas with others in the field. Furthermore, posters will be judged and the presenter of the best student poster will receive an Apple iPad.
