On the 19th of August 2018, the paper “Els materials que canviaran el món” was published in La Vanguardia. Many ICMAB researchers, including Anna Roig from the N&N group, were interviewed and explained the new materials they are developing at ICMAB. Anna talked about nanoparticles and bacterial nanocellulose. We encourage you to take a look at this nice communication!
Between 14 and 16 May 2018, the bars of Barcelona will be full of science. Pint of Scienceis back in town!
Irene Anton, PhD researcher at the NN group will give a talk on “Medicina regenerativa: cas concret dels implants de pell” on Wednesday, 16 May in Alfa Bar (Gràcia). This talk will be part of the session “Ens hi juguem la pell“.
The program “A researcher in your classroom” brought Anna Roig, from the N&N group, to Lliçà d’Amunt, at Institut Lliçà (Tuesday, 3 February 2018), and the ICMAB researcher Agustín Mihi to Institut Dr. Puigvert de Sant Andreu in Barcelona (Wednesday, 4 February 2018). Both audiences were secondary school students of 4t ESO.
The “A researcher in your classroom” program, a part from showing the research in new nanomaterials and their applications to the students and their teachers, breaks the existing barriers between secondary schools and research centers: the students have the opportunity to meet scientists, learn how they became a scientist, and ask them questions about their job or life.
Aquest dijous dia 14 de setembre de 2017, l’Anna Laromaine ha donat la conferència inaugural a l’Institut de Cassà de la Selva donant el tret de sortida al nou curs. Com a antiga alumna de l’institut, ha presentat la investigació del grup N&N. També els ha animat a treballar per ser el que vulguin ser i fer realitat el títol de la xerrada: De l’INS Cassà to theworld!
Thursday 22nd of June of 2017 was the last day of the first edition of the Scientific School on Materials for Biomedical Applications organized by ICMAB (MATBIO2017). A large number of local and international students attended the school and participated actively on the debates, the science dating and the hands-on sessions. Almost all the participants would repeat this experience according to the surveys.
Good job of the organizers, we will be waiting for the second edition!
On May 10th, three bio-medical engineering students form the University of Vicvisited ICMAB and its facilities. They are Laura Gonzalez students of the bio-materials course. Sole and Irene showed them the crystallography lab and other ICMAB facilities: NANOQUIM, electron microscopes among others. After that, several members of the N&N group gave a talk explaining to the students which are our main research lines.
Anna Roig (May 8th 2017) and Anna Laromaine (May 15th 2017) will also participate in this biomaterial course by giving two seminars in the University of Vic.
