Workshop to honor Prof. Yannis Missirlis, 7 July 2017

Cross-talking of Cells with their Neighbors and other Environmental Cues at Biointerfaces

The organizers of the 14th International Conference on Nanosciences & Nanotechnologies decided to hold a special Workshop, within the Workshop on Nanomedicine, to pay tribute to Prof. Yannis Missirlis, retired (but still active) Professor of Biomechanics & Biomedical Engineering at University of Patras, Greece. The decision was based on his continuous multifaceted support of these Conferences from their start and, especially, for his being the pioneer of the Interdisciplinary Sciences of Biomechanics, Biomaterials, Biomedical and Tissue Engineering in Greece.
