We are looking forward to our contribution to the CLINAM conference which is held online this year. We will also host two sessions: "Chemistry of New Nanomedicines" and "Nanoparticles and the Immune System". Thanks to the organizers who had a rough time rescheduling and transforming the event.
Sun protection is important, but not only on vacation at the beach, but also at workplaces such as construction sites. Construction workers are particularly at risk of developing skin cancer due to high exposure to the sun. Although we are researching new methods to successfully treat skin cancer, prevention is still the top priority in the fight against this treacherous disease.
With our construction fence banner at the University Hospital of Mainz, we would like to remind the construction workers of this every day.
The SFB1066 has published another Special Issue this year “Nanoparticles in Cancer Immunotherapy”. Congratulations to all Authors. "
We are happy about the report of a publication by Alberg et al. in "Small" on "www.advancedsciencenews.com"
Congratulations to our colleague Prof. Ugur Sahin and coworkers for their publication "An RNA vaccine drives immunity in checkpoint-inhibitor-treated melanoma" in "Nature"
Covid-19 could not stop us to organize another Summer School for our PhD students. Thanks to all the participants and for their interesting talks. It has been a great experience although we would not mind a Summer School in person next year...
Online Sommerschule Programm 2020
We are happy about our contribution to the topic: "Nanoparticles to activate the immune system"
We were also encouraged by the Covid 19 crisis to leave our comfort zone and to turn our meeting into an online conference call.
Congratulations to Prof. Dr. Matthias Barz who took up a professorship at the University of Leiden click here for more information. Therefore Dr. Lutz Nuhn will take over the representation of young scientists on the board. Furthermore, Dr. Mustafa Diken has been appointed to the board to strengthen the clinical translation.
