Zheng Ma gave a talk at Joint European Magnetic Symposia (JEMS2019)

Zheng Ma, PhD candidate at the N&N Group, attended Joint European Magnetic Symposia (JEMS2019) in Uppsala, Sweden (26-30 August). He gave a talk “Structural and Magnetic Properties of Cr-substituted ε-Fe2O3 Nanoparticles”. It was a collaborative work between our group (supervised by Martí Gich) and  CMEOS group in ICMAB, as well as our colleagues from ALBA synchrotron. 

Good job Ma! 

Sole Roig gave a talk at the 4th International Conference of Natural Fibers

Last 1st to 3rd July 2019, the PhD fellow Soledad Roig attended the 4th International Conference of Natural Fibers that took place in Porto (Portugal). There, she presented an interesting oral contribution with the title: “Multilayer bacterial cellulose with confined nanoparticle distribution” which was based on her most recent published work.

Dr. Katherine A. Mirica will give a seminar on conductive MOFs

Next Monday 18th February 2019 at 12 pm, the ICMAB periodical lecture will be given by Dr. Katherine A. Mirica from the Dartmouth College (USA). She has been invited by Anna Laromaine and the title of the talk is: Conductive MOFs as Multifunctional Materials: Design, Properties, and Devices. Do not miss this nice opportunity to learn more about metal–organic frameworks!

 

 

Irene Anton participated in the Nanobio&Med conference on Barcelona

Irene’s oral presentaiton

From the 20th to the 22nd of November 2018 the PhD fellow Irene Anton attended to the NanoBio&Med conference organized at the Parc Científic of de Barcelona. This multidisciplinary congress was very useful to catch up with the recent advances in the rapidly evolving field of nanobiotechnology. Irene got the opportunity to present her results regarding bacterial nanocellulose interactions with human cells with both a poster and a talk. Her poster entitled “Bacterial nanocellulose and bacterial nanocellulose nanocomposites as substrates for cell culture” was selected for the best poster award sponsored by the journal Biomolecules MDPI.

 

Thanks to the MDPI publishing group for the prize!

Best POLYMAR2018 oral presentation award for Sole Roig!

From the 8th to the 12th of October 2018 Sole Roig, PhD candidate at the N&N group, participated in the 2nd Conference in Polymer Science (POLYMAR) dedicated to biopolymers and taking place in a cruise through the Aegean sea. Her presentation “Microstructuration and functionalization of bacterial cellulose” was awarded with the Best Oral Presentation by an early stage researcher price sponsored by Publishing MDPI, congratulations Sole! 

 

“POLYMAR2018 was a very interesting congress with a new format I have never seen before. The industrial point of view of most of the talks offered me the possibility to learn new approaches that we can apply on our lab in order to make easier the commercialization of the materials we are investigating.” 

 

Irene Anton attended the 29th European Conference on Biomaterials

From September 9th to 13th, the PhD student Irene Anton stayed in Maastricht (The Netherlands) in order to participate in the ESB Congress 2018. She shared her work with the poster “Bacterial Nanocellulose (BNC) and BNC-TiO2 nanocomposites as cell carriers”. The topic of the conference was “materials for life” and Irene got a very nice opportunity to catch up with the latest advances on her research field.

Sole Roig and Anna Roig participated in the EMN Meeting on Cellulose

From September 10th to 14th, the Energy Materials and Nanotechnology meeting focused on cellulose took place in the UAB Campus, Barcelona. Sole Roig and Anna Roig from the N&N group, actively participated in this event: Anna Roig chaired two general sessions and delivered the talk “Topography modifications and nanocomposites of bacterial nanocellulose” and Sole Roig orally presented her work “Confined nanoparticle multilayer bacterial cellulose composite”.

 

Good job girls!
