About Us

We are an interdisciplinary group with diverse research interests

The N&N Group’s research is mainly focused in the rational synthesis of nanoparticles and nanocomposites and the study of their structural-functional properties incluing those related to the nano/bio interfaces. The group vision is to see our materials impacting in Nanomedicine, Information Technologies or Energy and Environment. Surf our website if you want to know more about us and our research!

Hot off the press: new paper in ChemNanoMat!

Hot off the press: new paper in ChemNanoMat!

Our paper “Nanorods based on mesoporous silica containing iron oxide nanoparticles as catalytic nanomotors: study of motion dynamics has been published in ChemNanoMat. It is a result of a collaboration of N&N Group and Smart Nano-Bio-Devices group at the Bioengineering Institute of Catalonia (IBEC). 

Corneal-BNC project finalist at Premios Expoquimia 2020

Corneal-BNC project finalist at Premios Expoquimia 2020

We are happy to share with you that the project Novel Nanocellulose Patches to Treat Corneal Wounds (CORNEAL-BNC) founded by a Llavor grant has been selected as a finalist in the PREMIO BIOTECNOLOGÍA I+D+I 2020 from Premios Expoquimia 2020. This translational project joins forces with the Barraquer Clinic of Barcelona to develop novel solutions for the treatment of corneal wounds. Congratulations to all the researchers involved!
