Anna Laromaine invited to the Congreso Anual de Biotecnologia in Girona

Anna Laromaine gave an invited lecture at the Congreso Anual de Biotecnologia (BioBAC) that took place in Girona the last 11th-13th July of 2018. She gave an overview of our activities in the biotechnology field with special focus on the research related with bacterial cellulose. It was very encouraging to see the interested and motivated students which participated at the conference.

Irene at the World Ophthalmology Congres

Irene Anton, PhD student at the NN group, attended the World Ophthalmology Congress (WOC 2018) organized by the International Council of Ophthalmology and held at La Fira de Barcelona (16-19 June 2018). In this huge congress, the latest advances in clinical practises and new technologies for eye care were presented. Irene also attended the 3D live surgery offered by the Barraquer Institute.

Jan participated in the 1st Spanish Conference on Biomedical Applications of Nanomaterials

7th-8th of June 2018

Jan Grzelak, PhD student at the N&N group, travelled to Madrid to attend the 1st Spanish Conference on Biomedical Applications of Nanomaterials (SBAN) held at the Instituto de Ciencia de Materiales de Madrid (ICMM). Jan presented the poster “Mesoporous silica nanorods as theranostic platforms”.

MAGBBRIS project kicks off

The MAGBBRIS Consortium, where Yajie Zhang and Anna Roig participate, celebrated its kickoff meeting during the 26th and 27th of March 2018. The project coordinator, Anna Rosell, welcomed the participants at the Vall d’Hebron Research institute (VHIR), in Barcelona. 

 

During the meetings the participants had the opportunity to understand better the EuroNanoMed Joint Call thanks to Janna Slabbekoorn from the Competitive Calls Unit from VHIR. Afterwards they heard a little bit about each partner’s background related to the project. the members of the consortium could also learn about the past work using endothelial progenitor cells for the treatment of stroke, nanocapsule synthesis, pre-clinical and clinical magnetic resonance imaging, different in vitro models of the blood-brain barrier, manufacturing of high volumes of proteins under GMP conditions and magnetic targeting of nanomaterials.

 

We wish a lot of success to the MAGBBRIS project! 

Ma attended the Technologies for Oxide Electronics School 2018

Ma (middle) with other students from ICMAB and ICN2 at the Technologies for Oxide Electronics School 2018

The PhD student Ma Zheng participated in the Technologies for Oxide Electronics School 2018. This course was organized by the ICMAB and was held in Hotel Eden Roc, Sant Feliu, Spain 15-17th March 2018. The school focused on the new opportunities for oxide-based thin films technologies in data storage and computing, energy harvesting, optical and high frequency telecommunications. 

Anna Roig was an invited speaker at the International nanoComposites Conference

 

Thursday 15th of March 2018 Anna Roig gave an invited talk at the first edition of the International nanoComposites Conference, which is part of the largest European event in Nanoscience & Nanotechnology: ImagineNano2018. This congress was held at Bilbao (Spain) and Anna’s talk was about “Bacterial Nanocellulose: Surface Microstructuration and Composites”.
