Congratulations to our post-doc fellow Chiara Nardon for the “Young Veneto Excellence Award” (Padova, Caffè Pedrocchi, 9 November 2013).

Prize motivation: for the biochemical researches carried out at the Karmanos Cancer Institute, Waine State University, Detroit, (USA) on groundbreaking anticancer Gold(III) compounds.

Our PhD student Giulia Boscutti presented her research work at

the PhD Forum of Molecular and Materials Sciences, 3-4 December 2013.

Congratulations on this significant achievement!!!
