Welcome

Dear Colleagues,

We are very pleased to welcome you to the SUPRALIFE Second School which will be organized by the COMPASS Research Group at the University of Aveiro (UAVR; Coordinator) in close collaboration with the consortium partners Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e), the University of Bordeaux (UBx) and its affiliated entities Polytechnic Institute of Bordeaux (Bordeaux INP) and French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS).

The SUPRALIFE Second School will be held in the pleasant and beautiful city of Aveiro, Portugal, from 10-15 March 2024 and the program will be split in two parts:

(i) a scientific program from 10-12 March which aims at teaching fundamental-to-advanced concepts to students and researchers with backgrounds in chemistry, biochemistry, (bio)materials science, biomedical engineering, bioengineering, biotechnology and biology on the molecular design, synthesis, development and advanced characterization of bioinspired supramolecular self-assemblies for biomedical applications and healthcare.

The scientific program will consist of plenary/tutorial lectures by world-leading experts in the supramolecular and biomaterials’ chemistry fields who will share their extensive experience and expertise and present a comprehensive overview of the research activities headed by their own research groups and in collaboration with other research groups, industry or clinical practitioners.

The program will also include oral and poster presentations selected from contributed abstracts submitted by participants in fields that include: bioinspired polymers; functional supramolecular self-assemblies; adaptive, dynamic, responsive and interactive soft materials and molecular systems; compartmentalized structures; life-like systems; and their use in nanomedicine, diagnostics, theranostics, biosensing, drug/therapeutics delivery, soft robotics, tissue engineering or regenerative medicine.

(ii) a soft transferable skills’ training program from 13-15 March which aims to advance the professional development and widen the career perspectives of students and researchers, irrespectively of their background and area of specialization, to outperform in their professional duties and career paths. The topics of the training sessions will be announced soon.

The participants will have the unique opportunity for interacting closely and exchanging ideas and experiences with the invited speakers and networking with peers in an informal and relaxed environment.

We cordially invite you to attend this stimulating event and look forward to meeting you soon in Aveiro!
