Student visit to the University of Bristol - Raman study of monoolein


First year resident student in Analytical Pharmacy, Iulia Veremiov, participated in a training visit at the University of Bristol during November 2020 - February 2021. There she attended courses on nanoscience and performed training on several analytical techniques such as: SEM, AFM, Raman and SAXS.

During the visit she conducted research on examination of stability and phase transition of monoolein in glycerol and water mixtures using SAXS under the guidance of Dr. Annela Seddon.

Iulia acquired important, transferable skills, the training and research visit was a valuable experience not only in terms of getting training on several analytical techniques, data analysis and nanoscience courses, but as well in terms of getting experience in working on interdisciplinary research and getting to know researchers from different fields.

Iulia joined NanoMedTwin in autumn 2019, being selected among the participants of the Autumn School in Nano-Bio-Engineering, then she followed the long-term program of the advanced training courses on Nanotechnologies and Biomedical Engineering (October 2019 - May 2020), where she expressed her interest in doing research and presented a seminar explaining in details the field of Liposomes to an interdisciplinary group of students. 
Upon arrival, Iulia presented her results and activities during the stay at the University of Bristol in a seminar organized with the participation of the NCMST team of Professors, researchers, and students. 
Strong theoretical background combined with all the practical interdisciplinary activities within the NanoMedTwin project are a strong impulse for Iulia to follow a career in research and start her Ph.D.
