The Lumiblast H2020 FET-OPEN project consortium would like to invite you with great pleasure to our one-day thematic colloquium on the 10th of January 2023.
The topic of the colloquium is:
Photosensitizer-based theranostics for cancer with a focus on glioblastoma.
The meeting will be divided into two sessions:
A. Conventional photosensitizer-based therapy and diagnosis
B. Alternative methods of photosensitizer activation
