NMIN HQP Research Presentation Database

The table below is best viewed in landscape on smaller devices (rotate your phone sideways).

The table below lists the presentations delivered by NMIN HQP as part of NMIN’s HQP Research Presentation Series, focusing on work from NMIN-supported projects and other nanomedicine-related research.

Presentation titles are linked to the corresponding poster and oral presentation video. Where the presentation relates to an NMIN project, the project name links to a description of the project.

The database can be searched or sorted by any field.
