About the NALS conference

“Nanomaterials Applied to Life Sciences 2022”, NALS2022 is a multidisciplinary Conference series that wants to promote multidisciplinary scientific discussion and the sharing of new ideas in the field of nanotechnology applied to Medicine, Biology, and the Environment, among others. NALS Conferences aim to bring together researchers, professionals, industrialists, and students from these research areas to contribute to a fruitful liaison between academia and industry, establishing and fostering lasting collaborations. NALS2022 Conference will generate multidisciplinary projects, and collaborations, boosting the development of disruptive nanomaterials-based techniques and devices, establishing synergies, fostering long-lasting collaborations between researchers, professionals, industrialists, and students from research areas of Nanomedicine, Nanoscience, and Nanotechnology.

The 10+ networking events in NALS2022 will promote the close networking interaction of scientists from all disciplines working in nanomedicine (physicists, chemists, biologists, biotechnologists, biomedics, pharmacists,
The Organizing Committee invites international young scientists to participate, present and defend their work as part of their training in this biannual Conference Series.

The previous NALS meetings took place in Gijon (Spain), in December 2017, and Madrid, in January 2020, gathering participants coming from 24 countries. NALS events are promoted by the NanoBioAp Cluster, which consists of more than 70 researchers from different Spanish Research Institutions. The NanoBioAp Cluster is chaired by Prof. Carmen Blanco and Prof. Montserrat Rivas, from Universidad de Oviedo (Spain).
