Hot off the press: new publication in ACS Applied Nano Materials!

The recent paper “Radiolabeled Cobaltabis(dicarbollide) Anion–Graphene Oxide Nanocomposites for In Vivo Bioimaging and Boron Delivery” has been published in ACS Applied Nano Materials. In this study, N&N Group members Amanda Muñoz and Anna Laromaine collaborated with Rosario Núñez and Gerard Tobias from ICMAB by sudying the GO-I-COSAN biocompatibility in the worm C. elegans.

Book chapter: What We Learned From Caenorhabditis elegans and Hydra vulgaris

6th of December 2018 the first edition of the book entitled “Nanomaterials for Magnetic and Optical Hyperthermia Applications” was published by Elsevier. This book focuses on the design, fabrication and characterization of nanomaterials for in vitro and in applications. Anna Laromaine, researcher at the N&N group, and Laura González-Moragas, graduated PhD student at the N&N group, are coauthors of the chapter nine included in this book: Invertebrate Models for Hyperthermia: What We Learned From Caenorhabditis elegans and Hydra vulgaris.

 

Congratulations girls for your nice work!

Welcome Gerrit!

This spring we have a new member in the N&N group: Gerrit, from Germany! 

Hi, my name is Gerrit and I’m a master’s student of toxicology from Düsseldorf, Germany. In 2016, I got my bachelor’s degree in pharmaceutical chemistry in Cologne. Now, I am glad to enter the Group of Nanoparticles and Nanocomposites for an internship of six months under the supervision of Dr. Anna Laromaine. My topic will be the investigation of the effects of cellulose on the nematode C. elegans and vice versa. I’m looking forward to meeting you! 

Good luck with your project Gerrit and we all hope you enjoy your time at the N&N group!
