Summer group activity: Room Escape!

Last 25th July 2019, some of the N&N group members participated in a room escape in Barcelona as an end of season team building activity. The room scape was called EL PROYECTO DE LA BRUJA and consisted on a competition between two groups to solve 10 puzzles in less than 1 hours and 15 minutes. We all thank Amanda Muñoz who was the organizer. Both groups made it on time and we had a great time together! 

Natalia Martínez and Amanda Muñoz at the Biotechnology Annual Congress

10th-12th July 2019: The master students, Natalia Martínez and Amanda Muñoz attended the Biotechnology Annual Congress (BAC2019) at Madrid. They presented their research in a poster session. This congress gathers biotechnologist students and experts from different fields every July. This year, the principal talks were about metabolomics, business, nanomedicine and bio-imprinting. Looking forward for the next Biotechnology Annual Congress in Zaragoza next July!

Good job Natalia and Amanda! 

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.

Great moments at the ICMAB party 2019!

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!

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!
