Michael Faraday synthesised gold nanoparticles back in 1856, so what is new? How could rust, which is magnetic, be used to diagnose and treat diseases such cancer? How can different shapes of gold nanoparticle such as rods or stars help with killing bacteria on surfaces? Come to find out about Professor Nguyễn's interdisciplinary and innovative research on the design, synthesis, characterisation, and biofunctionalisation of plasmonic and magnetic nanomaterials for biomedical applications.

The prize lecture will be webcast live and the video recording of the event will be available shortly after the event.
