International Workshop: Sol-Gel Materials for Bioencapsulation and Biodelivery

The workshop will explore current efforts to control the survival and biological function of enzymes and whole cells in both single-cell and cluster encapsulates

A Call for Candidates to Renew the ISGS Board of Directors

Representing the sol-gel community as a member of the ISGS Board is an opportunity to support our community, and to ensure that its challenges continue to be addressed. Members of the ISGS Board are elected for a period of six years, with three members retiring at each biennial International Sol-Gel Conference and three new members being elected. This ensures that each Board maintains a core of experienced members, together with newer members to contribute new ideas. A particular strength of the sol-gel community is its geographical, scientific and technical diversity, and it is important that this rich diversity is reflected in the composition of the Board. It is also important that membership of the Board embeds a strong focus on gender equity, diversity and inclusion. Accordingly, we strongly encourage applications from women, together with sol-gel practitioners from all countries to reflect the diversity of our community.
