mwozniakI have visited National Institute for Environmental Studies (NIES) in Tsukuba Japan, spending there 2 month (5th September – 5th November 2012).
I have carried out experiments to produce necessary data for the nanoparticles.

Using my experience in Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) I developed novel method for nanoparticles sample preparation and investigation in liquid environment. I tested morphology and size distribution of nanoparticles in ambient and liquid condition. Moreover I investigated morphology of CHO (Chinese Hamster Ovary)-NF-kappa B cells, and cells – nanoparticles interaction using AFM and Confocal Laser Microscopy (CLM) methods. I have learned a lot about different analytical methods like XRD, DLS, BET and CLM.

Most of expected data from second Work Package 2 „Carrying out experiments to produce necessary (missing) data for NPs” were collected.
I was very impressed by the level of experiments carried out at NIES in Tsukuba. Personally I am very familiar with Japan, I used to stay in Tsukuba few years as a graduate student and postdoc and visit for NanoBridges project implementation was very pleasant and fruitful experience for me.
