The current workshop is the third edition of a bi-annual meeting on magnetic nanoparticle systems, with special emphasis on their heating performance and hyperthermia cancer treatment. Jointly organised by the Universidade de Santiago de Compostela (USC), and the University of York (UoY).
Fostered by a Royal Society International Exchanges Scheme Fellowship between both universities, the first meeting took place in 2017, with title “Magnetic nanoparticles and hyperthermia – experiments and simulations”. More info 🡥
As the name indicates, the first edition aimed at uniting experimental and theoretical backgrounds in relation to hyperthermia performance, and gathered a group of international researchers.
A second edition took place in 2019, on this occasion under the title “2nd Workshop on Magnetic Nanoparticles and Hyperthermia - Challenges and opportunities”. More info 🡥
This second edition, which again reunited a group of international researchers, aimed to discuss the more central challenges in the field (mainly, from a materials science perspective), and to identify possible related opportunities, such as for example the application to catalysis, or the remote control of cellular activities (magnetogenetics).
