Zoriana Demchuk gives a Graduate Student Seminar presentation at the Department. The title of Zoriana’s presentation is “Free Radical Polymerization of Plant Oil-based Monomers”.
Andriy Voronov gives a keynote presentation entitled New Polymers and Polymer Materials based on Plant Oils at 7th International Conference on Nanotechnology: Fundamentals and Applications (ICNFA) in Budapest, Hungary on August, 18-19, 2016. ICNFA is a part 2nd World Congress on New Technologies, NewTech’16, composed of three different conferences hold simultaneously. At this event, Voronov also served as a Chair for the Congress.

Dr. Vitalii Serdiuk from Department of Organic Chemistry at Lviv Polytechnic National University spent four months working in a group of Dr. Yaszemski (under guidance of Dr. Maran) at Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN, as well as in our group at NDSU.
Vitalii worked on studying interactions between polymeric micellar assemblies and both human normal and cancerous cells for understanding their mechanisms, with an idea and purpose to further demonstrate feasibility of synthesized in our group amphiphilic invertible polymers and their micellar assemblies in development of polymeric delivery carriers for poorly water soluble drugs.
Voronov is honored to be named a Chair of the 3rd World Congress on New Technologies (NewTech’17) in Rome, Italy. This congress will be taking place on June, 6-8, 2017 and is composed of four co-located conferences, 8th International Conference on Nanotechnology: Fundamentals and Applications (ICNFA’17), 7th International Conference on Environmental Pollution and Remediation (ICEPR’17), 3rd International Conference on Biotechnology and Bioengineering (ICBB’17) and International Conference on Energy Research and Technology (ICERT’17). Each conference consists of an individual separate topic, but all of them share considerable overlap which is a basic idea for organizing this congress. The main goal is to bring together experts in various disciplines and fields from closely related but still different research areas.

In addition, prior to congress opening, a workshop on Smart Nano-objects for Alteration of Lipid bilayers (SNAL) will be organized and presented to congress attendees. For more information on the workshop visit http://icnfa.com
