STARSTEM partners at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) organized an exhibit at the public Streetlife Festival in Munich which took place on May 25 and 26, 2019. At the festival, STARSTEM’s Dr Vipul Gujrati presented his work on biological nanoparticles for theranostic application which was published in Nature Communications earlier this year. The title of Vipul’s presentation was “Bioengineered Cells Derived Vesicles for Theranostic Application”
Researchers from different areas (Mechanical engineering, Astrology, Biomedical etc) were invited to present their work and participate in a question-and-answer session. The purpose of the festival is to introduce and show the general public what is currently happening in research labs to allow scientists to showcase their latest work.
The Streetlife Festival, organized by Green City e.V., is the largest street festival in Munich. It informs about socially relevant topics twice a year. From Odeonsplatz to Leopoldstraße, businesses and clubs have the opportunity to show themselves for a weekend. With more than 250,000 visitors per weekend, the festival is one of the best-attended events in Munich.
