Marie Curie Global Fellow Laura Fusco, a visiting scholar in Yury Gogotsi’s Nanomaterials Group, has been selected to participate in the 71st Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting, to be held from June 26 to July 1, 2022 in Lindau, Germany.
Lindau Award recipients are nominated and selected by the sponsoring agencies and organizations. Laura, who will be sponsored by the European Commission, is one of 661 young researchers selected from among thousands of applications from around the world to attend this prestigious annual meeting.
Laura is a Marie Curie Global Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Padua, in Italy, working under the supervision of Dr. Lucia Gemma Delogu on the project “Mapping the skin-immune interactions of novel 2D materials: MXenes,” which is funded by a Marie Sklodowska-Curie grant from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program. The goal of her work is to provide a thorough evaluation of the skin impact and possible immunomodulation of a wide variety of MXenes, address key aspects of MXenes’ safety and their effective use in bioelectronics, epidermal electronics and medicine. She is conducting the international phase of her research at Drexel University, learning to produce and characterize novel two-dimensional MXenes to support her project.
This year's Lindau meeting is focused on Chemistry. At the meeting, there are opportunities for both formal and informal interaction between roughly 35 Nobel Laureates and the young researchers.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie grant agreement No 101029140.
