Last week, with a delay of 2.5 years, the GeneCellNano flagship partners finally met for the first time in real life. This meeting was overdue, and there were many very interesting talks among others from the Finnish Red Cross (about cancer immunotherapy) and UPM Biomedicals (about their biocompatible cellulose products). Lots of new ideas and some concrete plans for further collaboration. We participated with two posters, and - a bit unexpectedly since the project is still in its infancy - Khushbu Rauniyar from our lab won the best poster prize. Congratulations!
