Free Webinars: Nano for Diseases: Poverty-related Diseases and Cancer

“Nano for Diseases - Poverty-related Diseases and Cancer” on Tuesday 15th May & Thursday 17th May, 2012. 

Poverty related diseases, such as Rotavirus, HIV, and TB are the scourge of developing communities, but research continues in the mission to find preventions, better diagnostics and cures. At the same time, cancer affects everyone in every community: patients, family members and carers. The potential of nanotechnology to assist in the eradication of such diseases is widely acknowledged, and this series of two webinars gives participants a unique opportunity to find out how nano can help in this fight.

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at
