Our recent paper reporting on a multifunctional bacterial nanocelullose mille-feuille has been featured on the CSIC magazine! We are always pleased to see our work explained to the general public. Do not miss it!
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.
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.
3rd March 2018 Anna Roig participated in the debate “Coneixement i Recerca” held at the University of Vic in the context of the “Congrés Participatiu Catalunya i Futur”. This project is supported by the platform exigents.cat. The day before, she appeared on the local TV from Esplugues del Llobregat, on the program “Catalunya segle XXI-Recerca i Desenvolupament“.
Anna Laromaine, from the N&N group, Núria Sánchez-Coll, from CRAG (Center for Research in Agricultural Genomics) and other co-workers have developed an effective method for plant tissue regeneration that involves the use of a bacterial nanocellulose. This study appears on the monthly newsletter from the Consejo Superior de Investigciones Cientificas (CSIC) together with the work from other ICMAB researchers. This project called PLANT HEALING was funded by Fons Europeus de Desenvolupament Regional, Departament d’Empresa I Coneixement de la Generalitat de Catalunya with 20.000€.
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 the world!
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.
