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!

Our recent paper reporting on a multifunctional bacterial nanocelullose mille-feuille has been featured on the CSIC magazine! We are always pleased to see our work explained to the general public. Do not miss it! 

Cooking class for all the N&N members!

Cooking class for all the N&N members!

Last 28th February 2019 all the N&N group had a very fun and yummy time at the Escola de Cuina Mireia Carbó. We learnt how to prepare a traditional Catalan menu and later we enjoyed our self-prepared lunch! Thanks to Anna Laromaine for the organization of this original group activity and to the chefs for the patience!

Follow up meeting of the project “Bacterial nanocellulose to treat ocular surface disorders”

Last 26th February 2019 Irene Anton, Anna Laromaine and Anna Roig met with our collaborators Ralph Michael and Justin D’antin, researchers from the Centro de Oftalmología Barraquer for the follow-up of the project “Bacterial nanocellulose to treat ocular surface disorders”. This multidisciplinary work aims at finding clinical applications of bacterial nanocellulose in the field of ophthalmology and is part of the doctoral thesis of Irene Anton.

Amanda assists to NANOGUNE WINTER SCHOOL 2019

Amanda Muñoz, master’s students at the N&N group, is participating on the nanoGUNE Winter School, which is held in the nanoGUNE facilities in San Sebastian (Spain). The School includes a combination of academic lectures, soft skills training sessions and hands-on lab practices. Amanda is learning about very diverse topics such us electrospinning, protein nanoparticles and photonics. We hope you enjoy the training and come back with fresh ideas!

Miquel Torras received an Extraordinary Master Prize!

Miquel Torras received an Extraordinary Master Prize!

Miquel Torras received an Extraordinary Master Prize from the University of Barcelona for his excellent marks during his MSc in Applied Materials Chemistry in this university (2016-2017). The ceremony took place last Tuesday, January 29, presided by the rector, Joan Elias. The University of Barcelona awarded, in the same ceremony, the honorary doctorate to two distinguished figures of European law: Luigi Ferrajoli, author of the relation between democracy and law, and Luciano Vandelli, first authority on administrative law and territorial organization.

Congratulations Miquel, you rock!
