After the successful start of the project, we are pleased to announce that the first group of early-stage and experienced researchers from the University of Tirana are visiting Palacky University Olomouc.
The UT's team will stay in the Czech Republic for two weeks. On the 1st of November, they met Petr Jakubec, who organized a tour of the scientific laboratories of the Regional Center of Advanced Technologies and Materials (RCPTM). The UT's researchers got acquainted with the available research equipment.
A bilateral meeting with the participation of the General Director of CATRIN, Prof. Pavl Banas, and the head of RCPTM Prof. Michal Otyepka, was held. During the meeting, the CATRIN's and RCPTM's research activities were presented. Prof. Majlinda Vasjari from UT delivered a presentation about SUSNANO project, research topics, collaborations between partners and activities to be used for its implementation.
Also the UP's team had a research meeting with Jose Flauzino, a post-doc researcher at RCPTM. Jose presented a procedure of specific aptamer preparation for determination of antibiotics and demonstrated the determination of specific antibiotic after modification of the working electrode with proper specific aptamer using a smartphone.
The information gained during the first visit meetings and tours will form a basis for further research planning in the frame of the SUSNAO.
