IAP group partecipated to the “Notte Europea dei Ricercatori” (28th September 2018)

Our group participated to the “Notte Europea dei Ricercatori” (“European Night of Researchers”) on 28th September 2018 in Bologna (Italy).
We participated as members of the AlmaIdea Project “Studio dei meccanismi d’azione chimico‐fisici e biologici alla base dell’attività antitumorale di liquidi attivati con gas plasma per il trattamento della carcinosi peritoneale da tumore epiteliale dell’ovaio/tuba/peritoneo primitivo”, focused on the investigation of PALs (Plasma Activated Liquids) as potential antitumor agent in the treatment of peritoneal carcinosis.
Further details on the event can be found on the official webpage.
