On 7 February 2019 the first Radboud Nanomedicine community networking event took place. Scientific activities in the exciting field of nanomedicine at Radboud transcend the Theme Nanomedicine. Hence, the goal of the event was to bring together all those working in the field of nanomedicine at the Radboud University and Radboudumc, irrespective of the theme in which the research is performed: The Radboud Nanomedicine community.

Radboud PhD candidates and Postdocs working in the field of nanomedicine took central stage. Twentyfour Radboud nanomedicine projects were presented during the interactive laptop presentation sessions. The attendance was high and the room filled with scientists spanning disciplines ranging from material sciences to cell biology and immunology to organic chemistry was soon buzzing with discussion and sharing of experiences.

During the contiguous Research Café the discussions continued and prizes for the best PhD candidate and postdoc laptop presentations were awarded. The overall quality of the presentations as well as the presented science was outstanding. It was therefore a difficult task to select the winners, but this year’s PhD candidate and postdoc Nanomedicine Best Laptop Research Pitch awards went to Johan Pijnenborg (Synthetic Organic Chemistry) and Sanne van Lith (Radiology and Nuclear Medicine), respectively.
Based on our experience, but more importantly, based on the positive reactions from the attendants we can conclude that the first Radboud Nanomedicine Community Networking Event was a great success and we are looking forward to a second edition in the beginning of 2020.
