Seeing the Invisible: Neutron and X-rays Technology in Biology and Medicine
February 16 @ 09:00 - 13:00
From Atom to Anatomy
Norway has access to excellent tools to characterise and to study cell membranes, peptides, nanostructures and other structures in Biology, Life science and Medicine. The Norwegian government has committed to contribute to the financing of several of these. However, our experience is that these methods and possibilities are unknown for most of the Norwegian business community which could have advantages to know and use these methods. Therefore, we herewith invite Norwegian Companies within biology, life science and medicine to meet several experts within this field to inform and have discussions about the usefulness of these methodological tools.
