Anna roig gives a lecture at the Universidad Internacional Menéndez y Pelayo

This week Anna Roig has participated in the Advanced Course “De la Nanociencia a la Nanotecnología: luces y sombras del control de la materia a escala atómica” at the Universidad Internacional Menéndez y Pelayo (UIMP) in Santander. She gave a lecture lecture focused on nanomaterials and the unique physical and chemical properties that emerge at the nanoscale.

 

 

Anna Roig and Anna Laromaine presented our research at the nanoMATERIALS & PLANTS: ICMAB-CRAG meeting

On Monday, July 16, 2018, the first ICMAB-CRAG meeting took place at CRAG. The goal of this meeting was to promote new collaborations among researchers from the ICMAB and the CRAG.

 

Anna Laromaine, who already collaborates with CRAG with the project “Plant nano-healing“, gave an overview about the C.elegans and the bacterial cellulose research lines in the N&N group. Later, Anna Roig presented the library of nanoparticles and its diverse applications that the N&N group has developed in the recent years.

Anna Laromaine invited to the Congreso Anual de Biotecnologia in Girona

Anna Laromaine gave an invited lecture at the Congreso Anual de Biotecnologia (BioBAC) that took place in Girona the last 11th-13th July of 2018. She gave an overview of our activities in the biotechnology field with special focus on the research related with bacterial cellulose. It was very encouraging to see the interested and motivated students which participated at the conference.

Congratulations Jan for your INPhINIT diploma!

3rd July 2018

Jan Grzelak attended the award ceremony from La Caixa Fellows in Caixa Forum (Barcelona) and received a diploma for his excellence fellowship supported by La Caixa to perform his PhD at the N&N group on the topic “Mesoporous magnetic nanorods for theranostics”. Two other ICMAB researchers have also been granted with by a PhD grant from La Caixa and also assisted the ceremony.

Congratualtions Jan!

Miquel Torras at the 3rd International Conference on Polyol Mediated Synthesis

25th-27th of June 2018

Miquel Torras, PhD student at the N&N group, travelled to Madrid to attend the 3rd International Conference on Polyol Mediated Synthesis (ICPMS) held at the Instituto de Ciencia de Materiales de Madrid (ICMM). Miquel presented the talk “Fast and Simple Microwave Synthesis of Multicomponent Gold Nanoparticles”.

Good job Miquel!
