It was an honor to be the organizer and one of the trainers of half of a workshop named “Nanoparticles Synthesis and Characterization” held by Boston University Center for Nanoscience and Nanobiotechnology (CNN), and performed by Bjoern Reinhard and Mark Grinstaff groups of Chemistry and Biomedical Engineering departments. The participants of the workshop were mostly grad. students and post-docs from BU, Northeastern University, MIT, Harvard University and Mass. General Hospital (MGH) this year.
It was a great opportunity for all of us to share skills and knowledge in the field of Nano/Biotechnology and discuss the ideas. I believe such forms of knowledge transfer are the best ways of accelerating the propagation of science, and also paying back what you owe to the community.
