Large participation of the N&N Group at the International Symposium on Bacterial Nanocellulose in Porto

On 3-4 October 2019, four members of the N&N group: Anna Roig, Anna Laromaine, Sole Roig and Irene Anton attended the  fourth International Symposium on Bacterial Nanocellulose in Porto (Portugal). This congress gathers international researchers to communicate and share the latest developments in this fast-moving and continually expanding field of Bacterial Nanocellulose. All the N&N attendees presented their work in oral presentations. Moreover, Irene Anton was awarded with the prize for the best oral sharp presentation of the symposium.
Well done!
 

Congratulations Dr. Qianzhe Zhang!

 

The NN group members would like to congratulate Qianzhe Zhang for his excellent work on the Ph.D. thesis defense!

Qianzhe’s thesis is entitled Microstructural Control of Epitaxial α-Quartz Filmsand has been supervised by Dr. Martí Gich from the NN group and Dr. Adrián Carretero-Genevrier from NanoChemLab (Institut d´electronique et des Systèmes – IES, France) 

The jury was formed by Dr. Francisco Rivadulla Fernández (Universidad de Santiago de Compostela, Spain), Dr. Mariona Coll Bau (ICMAB-CSIC) and Dr. Romain Bachelet (Lyon Institute of Nanotechnology, France).

Congratulations Qianzhe!
