|Our ESRs were incredibly busy in doing and promoting science this year. Numerous activities reflect their passion and determination to be successful young scientists. Here we will familiarize you with their top achievements so far but bear in mind that the list is not full for the sake of space. We are very proud to announce that Hugo (ESR9) won 2nd place in the first UPO Science Slam. Premurosa’s fellows are also fully aware that promoting science is a good opportunity to share knowledge while having fun at the same time. Ksenia (ESR5), Elzbieta (ESR10), Hugo and Ilijana (ESR2) had a great time on the well-known manifestation Researcher’s Night 2021 where the citizens got to know their work. Similarly, Ivana (ESR4) was pleased to attend the International Festival of Innovation, Knowledge and Creativity, Tesla Fest 2021 held in Serbia. Some of the ESRs managed to be very active in presenting their work at conferences: – Ilijana gave a talk at the 61st International Scientific Conference, Materials Science and Applied Chemistry. Also, she presented posters at the Scandinavian Society for Biomaterials Conference 2021 – she was a winner of the rapid-fire presentation – and at the 31st Conference of the European Society for Biomaterials. – Mauro (ESR 12) spoke on „Forest embeddings for gene expression data modelling of tumour stage and survival in bladder cancer”, Mathematical and Statistical Methods for Metrology 2021 Virtual Workshop. – Nicola (ESR6) delivered speeches at the World Biomaterials Congress 2020 and the International Conference on Biofabrication 2021. Additionally, he presented posters at the International Society For Biofabrication (ISBF) Twitter Poster Conference 2021 and TERMIS 2021 World Congress. We’re delighted to point out the most recent publication of Premurosa’s fellows which is one by Aydin (ESR11): „Surface functionalization of anodized tantalum with Mn3O4 nanoparticles for effective corrosion protection in simulated inflammatory condition”, Ceramics International, October 2021. You can check his article for more details! We would like to end this post by informing you about an upcoming Research Day at Tempere University where Virginia (ESR3) will present her studies. Let’s wish luck to Virginia!|
