A message from the newly appointed BSNM Co-Chairs

Steve Conlan is Professor of Molecular and Cell Biology and director the Centre for Nano Health at Swansea University Medical School . He is also head of the Reproductive Biology and Gynaecological Oncology research group, and Head of Enterprise and Innovation for the Medical School.

Tom McDonald is a Senior Lecturer in Nanomedicine at the University of Liverpool. His research is focussed on the design and synthesis of drug delivery systems.

“Hello, and a very warm welcome to the British Society of Nanomedicine. We are honoured to be appointed as the Co-Chairs of the Board of Trustees of BSNM and would like to take this opportunity to thank Andrew Owen and Steve Rannard for all of their hard work, commitment and leadership over the last 10 years!

We are delighted that Andrew and Steve will remain active in the Society moving forward.

One of our first actions as Chairs is to host a series of early career researcher events building on the success of the annual events that have been held around the UK over the past 10 years. The first of these will take place online on November 25th and 26th and will provide an opportunity for early career researchers to showcase innovative research and discuss outputs and opportunities with other researchers and experts in the field of nanomedicine (click here for more information and registration). We and all the other BSNM Trustees look forward to seeing you there.

Another new development is the partnership we are setting up with the journal of Precision Nanomedicine (PRNANO). This new journal is also sponsored by CLINAM and endorsed by the European Society for Nanomedicine. We look forward to working with PRNANO over the coming years. Details of the journal will appear on the website soon.

We look forward to working with you our members in the coming months as we continue to promote and share research ideas and enable collaborations that will benefit the nanomedicine community in UK and beyond.”

The British Society for Nanomedicine (BSNM) are pleased to announce the next in the series of early career researcher online events is scheduled for 3rd and 4th March 2021 9:30-12:30.
