2024 1st Young Scientists Intersociety Webinar CRS YSC meets YSF-ESB and yESMI




Dear Colleagues, 

The Controlled Release Society Young Scientist Committee (CRS YSC) invites you to attend the 1st Young Scientists Intersociety Webinar, a unique online event organized in collaboration with the Young Scientist Committees of the European Society of Biomaterials (YSF-ESB) and the European Society for Molecular Imaging (yESMI). 

Join us for a groundbreaking conjoint webinar dedicated to advancing the frontiers of knowledge and fostering interdisciplinary collaboration. We will unite emerging and cutting-edge speakers working at the interface between (drug) delivery science and technology, multidisciplinary molecular imaging and biomaterials science engineering. By uniting the efforts of different scientific societies, we aspire to create a synergistic environment that promotes interdisciplinary scientific exchange and increases scientific value. 

With topics ranging from image-guided drug delivery to nano-theranostic materials, (bio)materials for biologics delivery and AI-enabled therapeutics, get inspired by a line-up of renowned and outstanding invited speakers:

​​Molly Stevens, PhD (Professor at the Imperial College London / University of Oxford)

Roy van der Meel, PhD (Assistant Professor at TU/e Eindhoven University of Technology) 

Assaf Zinger, PhD (Assistant Professor at Technion - Israel Institute of Technology)

The event will take place on the 12th June 2024 (8.40 am EST – 12.20 pm EST). Registrations are open to everybody, so do not miss this unparalleled opportunity to engage with leading experts, connect to other (young) scientists and shape the future of delivery, imaging and biomaterials science.

In addition, young scientists* will also have the unique opportunity to present their interdisciplinary research in a specific dedicated session. By providing a platform for young researchers to present their work, we aim to showcase their innovative and emerging research, and contribute to foster future collaborations between (young) scientists that can help promote personal and professional careers. Different short-talks by young scientists will be selected among the submitted abstracts, evaluated by at least three independent reviewers based on novelty, significance, clarity, soundness of conclusions and (potential) impact. Two “Best Young Scientist Talk Awards” will be given to the best presentations from the selected abstracts in this 1st Young Scientists Intersociety Webinar

Abstract submission (using abstract template) is opened until May 28th2024 at 11:59 pm ET. Abstract guidelines are specified in the template below
