The Gordon Research Seminar on Noble Metal Nanoparticles is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas.
The meeting will focus on bringing together a group of talented young investigators to explore and discuss new findings and recently developed technologies in the field of noble metal nanoparticles. Topics covered will include nanoparticle synthesis and fabrication, novel characterization techniques, and innovative applications.
Seed funding for this new Gordon Research Seminar has been provided by Merck Research Laboratories.
