Joint LCN/Physics & Astronomy/School of Pharmacy Meet and Greet Event

Wednesday, 20 January 2016 - 10:00am to 3:30pm

Department of Physics and Astronomy (P&A), the London Centre for Nanotechnology (LCN) and the School of Pharmacy (SOP) organise a meet and greet event to facilitate links between physics/nanotechnology research on one hand, and pharmaceutical research on the other. The main aim of this event is to highlight respective research activities, expertise and facilities, and identify potential for cross-departmental collaborations and funding applications. This will be achieved by a series of short presentations on research questions, expertise, facilities and industrial collaborations, and by ample opportunity to chat over coffee/tea and lunch.

The event is open for UCL academics, postdocs and PhD students working in relevant or potentially relevant areas.
