Anna Roig was invited as Visiting Professor at the Biomedical Engineering Department of Jinan University (Guangzhou, China)
She was hosted by Dr. Siming Yu. Siming did his PhD at the ICMAB in our group.
Anna Roig has been learning about Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) while participating in a Social Lab Workshop. The event was part of the New Horrizons Project and took place during 10th and 11th April 2019 in Vienna.
Last 11th Decembre 2018 Anna Roig travelled to San Sebastián to be part of a PhD thesis committee.
13th and 14th September 2018 Anna Roig travelled to Palma de Mallorca in order to be part of a thesis defense committee at the Universitat de les Illes Balears. The title of the defended thesis was: Síntesis y aplicación de Compuestos Híbridos Nanoestructurados basados en Óxido de Hierro y/o Nanodiamantes. It was presented by María Susana Gutiérrez Gómez and supervised by Dr. Jeroni Morey Salvà and Dra. María Nieves Piña Capó.
Anna Roig was also invited to gave a seminar on this university with the title: “Celulosa biosintetizada pro bacterias como plataforma para crear nuevos materiales funcionales” where she explained our project on bacterial nanocellulose.
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.
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.
From May 22nd to 26th 2018, Anna Roig was in Copenhagen presenting results of the Magbbris project on magnetic nanoparticles for brain repair after an ictus at the 12th Int Conference of Science and Clinical Applications of Magnetic Carriers.
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.
Thursday 15th of March 2018 Anna Roig gave an invited talk at the first edition of the International nanoComposites Conference, which is part of the largest European event in Nanoscience & Nanotechnology: ImagineNano2018. This congress was held at Bilbao (Spain) and Anna’s talk was about “Bacterial Nanocellulose: Surface Microstructuration and Composites”.
