The first day of the conference was devoted to the 1st Symposium on Polydopamine, which was the first international forum gathering leading scientists and experts within the field, i.a. Prof. Haeshin Lee (KAIST, South Korea), Prof. Prof. Vincent Ball (University of Strasbourg, France), Prof. Juergen Liebscher (Humboldt-University Berlin, Germany) or Prof. Daniel Ruiz-Molina (Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology, Spain). The NanoBioMedical Centre was represented by Dr. Radosław Mrówczyński.
On the following conference days, lectures were focused on the nanomaterials and nanotechnology, and were included in two parallel thematic sections: section A – Advanced nanomaterials and section B - Nanobiomedicine.
Plenary lectures of the conference:
Prof. Andrea C. Ferrari, Cambridge Graphene Centre, Engineering Department, University of Cambridge, UK

Moreover, the conference programme included 32 invited lectures, 14 contributed lectures and 102 poster presentations. The full list of the conference speakers and topics can be found on the conference website:
As part of the conference, the Young Researchers Forum was also held, during which 24 young scientists presented their recent scientific accomplishments in a short oral presentation. The best oral presentation prize was awarded to Ms. Kaja Spilarewicz-Stanek (University of Lodz) and Mr. Krzysztof Żukowski (Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań). Congratulation to the winners!
We cordially invite you to attend the next edition of the internatiponal conference NanoTech Poland on 5 – 7 June 2019!
