Accepted project at Elettra Synchotrone!

Ljubljana - June 27th, 2012

Elettra Trst

Bionanoteam has been successfully collaborating with scientists from Synchrotron Trieste Elettra and FERMI light sources facility from year 2010.

In year 2012 we applied for a project on the TwinMic beam line. Our proposal titled Cellular internalization of SiO2 nanoparticles by a model organism has been accepted and is already scheduled for July 2012.
Objectives of this project are:

  • to see in which cellular compartments internalised SiO2 nanoparticles are assimilated,
  • to monitor cellular internalization of nanoparticles after different durations of exposure of model organism (Porcellio scaber, Isopoda, Crustacea).
