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!

Summer group activity: Room Escape!

Summer group activity: Room Escape!

Last 25th July 2019, some of the N&N group members participated in a room escape in Barcelona as an end of season team building activity. The room scape was called EL PROYECTO DE LA BRUJA and consisted on a competition between two groups to solve 10 puzzles in less than 1 hours and 15 minutes. We all thank Amanda Muñoz who was the organizer. Both groups made it on time and we had a great time together!

Natalia Martínez and Amanda Muñoz at the Biotechnology Annual Congress

10th-12th July 2019: The master students, Natalia Martínez and Amanda Muñoz attended the Biotechnology Annual Congress (BAC2019) at Madrid. They presented their research in a poster session. This congress gathers biotechnologist students and experts from different fields every July. This year, the principal talks were about metabolomics, business, nanomedicine and bio-imprinting. Looking forward for the next Biotechnology Annual Congress in Zaragoza next July!

Good job Natalia and Amanda!

Hot off the press: paper on Preformed Human Serum Albumin Corona on Iron Oxide Nanoparticles

Congratulations to all the authors of the paper Insights into Preformed Human Serum Albumin Corona on Iron Oxide Nanoparticles: Structure, Effect of Particle Size, Impact on MRI Efficiency, and Metabolization! This work was published online the 19th June 2019 in the journal Applied Biomaterials from the American Society of Chemistry. Do not miss it!

Congratulations Deyaa, new N&N graduate!

Congratulations Deyaa, new N&N graduate!

We are happy to announce that last 19th June 2019, Deyaa Youssef successfully defended his PhD thesis. Deyaa was a visitor researcher at the N&N group during two years. He worked with bacterial nanocellulose composites with carbon nanotubes for energy applications.

Congratulations!
