The INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL OF NANOMEDICINE has the pleasure to invite you to attend the course “Nanofluidics, Nanoimaging and Nanomanipulation” that will be held on 5-11 April 2018 at International “ETTORE MAJORANA FOUNDATION AND CENTRE FOR SCIENTIFIC CULTURE” of ERICE (Sicily) Italy.

Erice Summer School Nanomedicine 2018

The course is co-organized with the Nanomedicine Center of the University Milano-Bicocca - NANOMIB

The course focuses on the state-of-the-art techniques and advanced biophysical methods related to Nanomedicine.

 The Scientific Program includes the following topics:

  1. Nanofluidics: i) Nanopores, ii) Nanofluidics, iii) Microfluidics
  2. Nanoimaging: i) STED and PALM, ii) FLIM-STICS, iii) Light sheet microscopy
  3. Nanomanipulation: i) AFM, ii) Magnetic Tweezers, iii) Optical Tweezers


The course will provide many opportunities for interactions and discussions between students, postdocs, junior as well as senior investigators, encouraging and promoting networking between them. The Course will be located in the old pre-mediaeval city of Erice providing an amazing setting for high intellectual endeavor.


​We encourage Early Career Researches to present their  investigations by submitting an abstract for either oral or poster presentation.

The great Sicilian hospitality is aimed at forging collaboration and exploring ideas though multidisciplinary approaches.
