18 June 2024 PhD student Ismaël Mahboub, from the Doctoral School of Physics of our university, won the 1st place at the 7th edition of the International French-speaking competition "My Thesis in 180 Seconds", a competition organized by the University Agency of Francophonie in Central and Eastern Europe (AUF-BECO) and the French Institute in Romania at Bucharest (IFR). Ismaël won with his thesis « La nano-detection, le futur de la mécine » ("Nanodetection, the future of medicine"). Sentence from the speech translated: The subject of my thesis involves the development of nanobiosensors, combining the prowess of nanotechnology and medicine in order to detect the smallest anomalies of the organism."       

16 - 17 April 2024 We are excited to announce the arrival of our new QCM-D (Quartz Crystal Microbalance with Dissipation)! Two of our dedicated students have been thoroughly trained on this cutting-edge technology, which will significantly enhance our research capabilities. The QCM-D technique allows us to precisely measure mass changes and analyze viscoelastic properties at the molecular level, providing real-time, highly sensitive insights into surface interactions. This advanced tool will enable us to delve deeper into biophysical and biochemical phenomena, pushing the boundaries of our research and leading to groundbreaking discoveries in the field of bioplasmonics.

27 Nov 2023 - 15 Dec 2023 -  PhD student Daria Stoia completed her first traineeship as part of her European PhD program, in the laboratory of Prof. Marc Lamy de la Chapelle at Institut des Molécules et Matériaux du Mans, Université du Mans in Le Mans, France. 

Daria's thoughts about this experience via LinkedIn: "Beyond refreshing – my three weeks at Le Mans Université were an empowering journey! Eager to return, I savored every moment, from learning new techniques to immersing myself in the city's vibrancy. The joy of connecting with new colleagues and making lasting friendships added to the richness of this experience. Thankful and geared up to kick off 2024 with newfound motivation!"
