Dear COSTers

Dr. Thorat, MC Member from Ireland, will also be organizing a Young Investigator Session in European Materials Research Society (EMRS) Fall Meeting 2019 in Warsaw Poland.

EMRS is Europe's highly recognized and prestigious society. The session will be arranged under "Symposium V Bioinspired and Biointegrated Materials as New Frontiers Nanomaterials IX".

The Symposium is scheduled from 16-19 September 2019. The theme of session is 'Functional Hybrid Nano structures for Theranostics' and will cover 10-12 special invited talks from young researchers across the world on nanomedicine and biomedical applications. 

5 invited talks are reserved to COST Action 17140 consortium members.  All interested contributors shoudl directly contact Dr. Thorat at

NOTE: Dr. Thorat is also organizing  a Special Issue in Journals NANOMEDICINE or/and Materials Science and Engineering:B and all presenters will be invited to submit manuscript in the special issue.

Dear COSTers,

Dr. Thorat, MC member from Ireland, will edit a book entitled 'NANOMEDICINES FOR BREAST CANCER THERANOSTICS' which will be published by Elsevier as part of the well-established Micro- and Nanotechnologies series. 

Thus, Dr. Thorat would like to invite all COST action members to contribute chapters to the upcoming book. The book will be available via Amazon and will be listed on Scopus. It will also be submitted for inclusion to the Books Citation Index, which part of the Web of Science and corresponding authors will get free ecopy of the book.

With the keynote lecture of Prof. Dganit Danino, from Haifa Technion (IL) on Cryo-TEM and other imaging techniques to characterize nanomedicine the 4-day First CA17140 Training School (TS) came to its end.

The TS featured 54 students coming to the University of Trieste from all over the continent (Greece, Portugal, Italy, Spain, United Kingdom, Russia, Finland, Ireland, Norway, Israel, Poland, Cyprus, Turkey, Switzerland, The republic of Serbia, Latvia, Romania, Germany, Slovenia.

The students also had the chance to present their work and exchange their experiences during two poster-viewing sections.

10 different trainers alternate during 4 days teaching the students about many different aspect of cancer nanomedicine: from their conception to their industrialization for clinical applications.

Trainers lecture notes are available here.

The CA17140 management is really indebted to both trainers and trainees for their commitment and their enthusiasm during all works of the TS, making it a success.

See you soon again!
