The N&N group wishes you a happy Sant Jordi day!

 The 23rd of April is la Diada de Sant Jordi  in Catalunya and it is celebration of culture and love which are represented by books and roses. Today at ICMAB we celebrated Sant Jordi with a book exchange activity. 

Since Sant Jordi is linked to reading, here is our recommended read of the day: a enjoyable mini-review to gain insight aobut the huge promise of bacterial nanocellulose in biomedicine. 

The N&N group wishes you all a happy Sant Jordi Day!

 

 

Hot off the press: new review about bacterial nanocellulose to treat epithelial tissues

We are happy to announce that our new review “Opportunities of Bacterial Cellulose to Treat Epithelial Tissues” is out and ready to download! This paper has been published on the journal “Current Drug Targets” on a special issue dedicated to Nanotechnology in Biomedical Applications. Do not miss this nice summary about the promising diverse applications of bacterial nanocellulose in regenerative medicine!

Fruitful participation of NN researchers at the Spanish Worm Meeting!

All the N&N researchers working with the model organism C.elegans attended the last 28-29 March 2019 the VII Spanish Worm Meeting (SWM). They were very active participants! One oral presentation was given by Zhongrui Luo (“Evaluation of the nano-bio interaction between superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles and Caenorhabditis elegans¨). Amanda Muñoz and Sumithra Srinivasan presented their work in a poster format. Good job!

Farewell to Carlos

Last week we said goodbye to Carlos Moya, who has worked as a postdoc during one year at the N&N group. To farewell him, we organized a dinner in Barcelona! We wish all the best to Carlos, he will continue with his research career at his former group, in the University of Barcelona. See you soon Carlos! 

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.
