FinTAC grant 2023:


The FinTAC grant 2023 was given to doctoral student MSc Mimosa Sillanpää (University of Turku) for attending the XXXI International Conference on Polyphenols (ICP 2023 3.–6.7.2023, Nantes, France) where she has a poster to present her research. The decision was based on the clear, technically well prepared application and the research topic having focus on development and application of new materials characterization methods. Further, the research has high environmental and societal relevance. Mimosa Sillanpää’s work is focused on studying the interactions between plant tannins and commercial antiparasitic drugs to determine if tannins could reduce anthelmintic resistance when combined with a treatment using commercial anthelmintics.


FinTAC seminar questionnaire: 
In February 2023 FinTAC board organized a questionnaire about interest in participating to a national thermal analysis and calorimetry seminar and about wishes for the seminar content. We got very valuable information that will be used in developing the FinTAC activities, thank you for all participants! Between the participants a restaurant gift card was allotted. The winner has been informed personally.
