SOL1 DESIGNING LOOP-MEDIATED ISOTHERMAL AMPLIFICATION (LAMP) AND ASSIMILATING PROBES
On March 28, 2020, IPANEMA organized the first Scientific online lecture (SOL1) for the project’s partners. dr Ryo Kubota, a molecular biologist from Diagenetix - a member of the IPANEMA consortium, was presenting his scientific expertise in designing Loop-mediated isothermal AMPlification (LAMP) and Assimilating Probes.
On April 10, 2020, 2nd IPANEMA Scientific Online Lecture was held. The lecture was about the Paper-Based Detection of Campylobacter spp. and it was prepared by our consortium members from INRAE: dr Jasmina Vidic, Priya Vizzini, and Marco Marin. Through this lecture, our researchers became more aware of possible experimental issues, but also discussed potential solutions to these problems for our project.
SOL3 MOLECULAR DIAGNOSTICS BASED ON DNA AMPLIFICATION AND MAGNETIC SENSOR ARRAYS
On May 12, 2020, the third Scientific Online Lecture of the IPANEMA project was organized. The lecture has been given by INESC MN’s Researchers: Verónica Romão, Sofia Martins , Sara Viveiros, and Débora Albuquerque. Through this lecture, our researchers were able to get acquainted with the Molecular diagnostics based on DNA amplification and magnetic sensor arrays.
On July 31, 2020, the fifth Scientific Online Lecture of the IPANEMA project was held. The lecture with the title “Microfluidics in tissue engineering” has been given by Prof. Dr Gordana Vunjak-Novaković, from Columbia University. The lecture nicely described the basic principles of organs-on-a-chip, as well as possible microfluidics solutions in the IPANEMA project.
SOL6 MINIATURIZING PHOTONIC INSTRUMENTS FOR SENSING
On October 5, 2020, the sixth Scientific Online Lecture of the IPANEMA project was organized. The lecture has been given by Prof. Dr. Ibrahim Abudlhalim from the PhotonicSys. Through this lecture, IPANEMA researchers were able to learn more about using Smart Phones as a tool for miniaturization.
Invited SOL1 Detection of gene function - bioinformatics and molecular methods
On December 28, 2020, we organized the first 1st IPANEMA Invited Scientific Online Lecture. The lecture was held by Mladen Petreš, from the Faculty of Agriculture, University of Novi Sad. Through this lecture, our researchers had a chance to learn more about the detection of gene function - bioinformatics and molecular methods.
SOL7 FLEXDYM POLYMER FOR BIOTECH APPLICATIONS & DEVICE COMMERCIALIZATION
On April 28, 2021, the 7th Scientific online lecture (SOL7) of the IPANEMA project was organized. The lecture with the title “Flexdym Polymer for Biotech Applications & Device Commercialization” has been given by Roberta Menezes from Eden Tech.
INVITED SOL2 EXTRACELLULAR VESICLES- BASICS AND ANALYSIS
