The N&N members were very active participants at the activities organized for the ICMAB party 2019. We all enjoyed very much the orienteering race, the cooking competition, the concert and the ping pong tournament! Also, the original creations of Amanda, Natalia and Jan were very popular at the video and pictures contests. Good job guys!
Last 6th and 7th of June the Scientific Meeting of BNC-b Students took place at ICMAB and ICN2. The N&N members Sole Roig and Jan Grzelak were part of the organization committee that did a very nice job!
Anna Roig was invited as Visiting Professor at the Biomedical Engineering Department of Jinan University (Guangzhou, China)
She was hosted by Dr. Siming Yu. Siming did his PhD at the ICMAB in our group.
El projecte “Nanopartículas sintéticas como tratamiento innovador en la sepsis (SPRINT-4-SEPSIS)” serà finançat per la Fundación Ramón Areces en el marc del XIX Concurso Nacional de Ayudas a la Investigación en Ciencias de la Vida y de la Materia.
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!
Anna Roig has been learning about Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) while participating in a Social Lab Workshop. The event was part of the New Horrizons Project and took place during 10th and 11th April 2019 in Vienna.
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!
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!
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.
