Nanomedicine Day — June 15, 2015

Our first annual Nanomedicine day will be held on Monday, June 15  from 12:00 — 4:30pm!  The event will feature talks and posters by CaNCURE co-op students, IGERT doctoral students, and other graduate students performing nanomedicine research at Northeastern University.  We invite all faculty and students to join us in celebrating the accomplishments of our Nanomedicine trainees!

No registration is necessary to attend.  To present a poster at this event, please apply here.  The first 42 poster presenters will have the opportunity to showcase their research on an ePosterBoard!  All graduate students who currently perform nanomedicine research at Northeastern University are highly encouraged to participate!  Prizes will be offered for the top posters!
