Anna Laromaine gives a talk at the “Self-Assembly at ICMAB” conference on June 21st

spion-albuminJune 21st-22nd is Self-Assembly at ICMAB (SELF2016), the conference on self-assembly within the ICMAB. The topics covered include self-assembly of nanoparticles, nanostructures onto surfaces, and organic molecules, and theory and simulation of self-assembly, among others. 

Anna Laromaine will give a talk (Tuesday, June 21st, 12.00) on “Albumin self-assembled on iron oxide nanoparticles’ surfaces”
