It is our privilege and pleasure to invite you to attend the 5th edition of International Conference on Analytical and Nanoanalytical Methods for Biomedical and Environmental Sciences, “IC-ANMBES 2018” to be held in Brasov, Romania during May 23th- 25th 2018, organized by Transilvania University of Brasov, Romania.

The conference is designed as an international forum for effective exchange of knowledge and experience among researchers, from all over the world, active in various theoretical and applied areas of: biophysics, biochemistry, medicine, bioengineering, environmental protection and food safety. We hope that this conference will represent an ideal opportunity for you to stay abreast of the latest developments in those areas of research, to present and discuss the most important scientific problems during the scientific sessions, as well as to meet old friends and make new ones.

The “IC-ANMBES 2018“ will cover different aspects of analytical and analytical methods, which will be presented in the frame of two main themes, with focused sessions on miniaturization /microfluidics /point of care devices:

1. Analytical and Nanoanalytical Methods for Biophysical and Biomedical Applications
2. Analytical and Nanoanalytical Methods for Environmental and Food Safety

To encourage young scientists and PhD students to present their best contributions, a panel of judges selected from members of the International Selection Committee will select the best posters presented to be awarded prizes in the Poster Award competition.

Besides the scientific aspects of the Conference, our guests will have every chance to enjoy the hospitality and the beauties of our historic town, Brasov.
