MNMT-Dublin Symposium

MNMT-Dublin Symposium is a series of events on latest developments of design, manufacturing, metrology, and applications in bio-medical, photonic, optic, and relevant areas organized by UCD Centre of Micro/nano Manufacturing Technology since 2016.



Prof. Kenneth Dawson

Prof Kenneth A. Dawson is recognized as a leading thinker on the principles governing the interactions of nanoscale entities with living organisms, and implications for bionanoscience. He is the founder of the modern conception of the ‘protein (biomolecular) corona’ responsible for the biological identity of engineered nanoparticles.

MNMT-Dublin Symposium VI: The Interactions of Nanoparticles with Living Systems

On 19th December 2018, Professor Kenneth A. Dawson was invited to give a lecture in the MNMT-Dublin Symposium on how to understand the interaction of nanoparticles with living systems. The lecture explained the controlling of these interactions and relevant applications in nanotherapeutics and nanosafety.
