The 2022 edition of the Nanoengineering for Mechanobiology happens to be organised in a very peculiar period of our life, when science has played a central role in putting under some control the burden of COVID-19. We hope this event will be part of the process of finding our way through the situation, and it will bring to the little fishermen village of Camogli the same enthusiasm, passion and curiosity that we were used to see during the past editions, fostering the establishment of new and long-lasting collaborations.
The scientific and social program is organised on the line of the previous editions, but with an additional day, to accommodate an additional social activity for the attendees to visit the region and increase their (much missed) interaction. The event will start on Sunday evening, 27/03/2022, to provide the possibility for everyone to join the venue, and enjoy the scientific opening, including some surprise. The symposium will take us through cutting edge science and technology in mechanobiology for 3 full days, and everything will fade out by lunch on Thursday, 31/03/2022, in time to join the airport or train station and start the trip back. As for the previous editions, we will organise a shuttle on Sunday and Thursday to ease this process.
The phylosophy of N4M is that every edition is organized by the founding bodies (EMPA and the CeMi), in collaboration with a Guest Organiser. For the 2022 edition the graduate school Mechanobiology in Epithelial 3D Tissue Constructs (ME3T) of the RWTH Aachen University is bringing new energy in the organisation of the meeting, under the guidance of Rudolf Leube and Jacopo Di Russo.
The scientific program is organized along 5 thematic sessions:
The DFG is the self-governing organisation for science and research in Germany. It serves all branches of science and the humanities.
The interdisciplinary research institute of the ETH Domain conducts cutting-edge materials and technology research.
The graduate school Mechanobiology in Epithelial 3D Tissue Constructs (MEƎT).
We are a multidisciplinary team of bioengineers and cell engineers based at the University of Glasgow.
