  HIGHLIGHTS

NRC2023 keynote speaker: Anna Stradner
Anna Stradner is a Professor at the Division of Physical Chemistry at Lund University specializing on biocolloids studied by scattering techniques. Her current research focuses on the properties of concentrated protein solutions with a particular interest in protein dynamics under crowded conditions. At NRC2023, she will talk about microrheology.
