2018/08/16 : : Annemarie Nadort : Publication in ACS Biomaterials Science and Engineering : A team of CNBP and non-CNBP researchers from Australia and Russia studied the toxic and optical properties of Upconversion Nanoparticles, coated with one, two or three layers of functional surface polymers. The multi-layers approach was necessary to find the optimal combination of reduced toxicity and sufficient brightness of the particles, studied in biologically relevant conditions, which is essential to facilitate the translation of such nanoparticles to the clinical applications.

Sydney science festival expo.
Around 100 primary school kids visited the booth
Dr martin Plöschner demonstrated which ordinary things will glow when you shine UV light on them: soap, detergent, money, identity documents.
But also natural things like scorpions, green leaves and bacteria on pistachios !
Finally the kids could read secret messages that were left by criminals…
Dr Annemarie nadort showed the children how you can see your own network of blood vessels in your tongue with a special microscope camera.
The kids were amazed by seeing the continuous flow of red blood cells in the vessels like ‘in rollercoasters’ or ‘like little ants walking on paths’ like the children said.
