Challenges and opportunities related to the clinical translation of nanomaterials is an area of intense research. In this blog post, qBionano’s Mattias discusses a recent article in Nature Biomedical Engineering on this important topic.
eLife and Center for Open Science (COS), today announced their support for the continuing development of Plaudit – a mechanism for academics to share their research recommendations openly with readers.

Researchers from qBionano and collaborators have just published a new paper describing the design and engineering of a coating that is super-repellent to all liquids. Read more below.
On September 21, a half-day workshop was held at Imperial College London to discuss the changing landscape of research assessment. The workshop was introduced by Prof Nick Jennings, followed by presentations from Prof Stephen Curry on DORA (slides here) and Dr Lizzie Gadd on responsible metrics, before finishing with a panel discussion which also included Dr Karen Rowlett, Dr John Tregoning and qBionano’s Dr Mattias Björnmalm. This panel discussion was chaired by Prof Chris Jackson.
The full workshop is available on Imperial College London’s YouTube channel:
On September 17-18, the Vitae Researcher Development International Conference 2018 was held in Birmingham. As part of this meeting, qBionano’s Mattias helped organize a workshop on the topic of “Healthy and supportive environments for PhD candidates: paving the way for good practices“.
The future of open science is high on the agenda right now since the introduction of a new plan last week describing the future of open access in Europe. In this blog post, qBionano’s Mattias discusses these recent developments. Our previous 1-step guide on how to make your research freely (and legally) available may also be of interest.
