Large participation of the N&N Group at the International Symposium on Bacterial Nanocellulose in Porto

On 3-4 October 2019, four members of the N&N group: Anna Roig, Anna Laromaine, Sole Roig and Irene Anton attended the  fourth International Symposium on Bacterial Nanocellulose in Porto (Portugal). This congress gathers international researchers to communicate and share the latest developments in this fast-moving and continually expanding field of Bacterial Nanocellulose. All the N&N attendees presented their work in oral presentations. Moreover, Irene Anton was awarded with the prize for the best oral sharp presentation of the symposium.
Well done!
 

Welcome Gerrit!

This spring we have a new member in the N&N group: Gerrit, from Germany! 

Hi, my name is Gerrit and I’m a master’s student of toxicology from Düsseldorf, Germany. In 2016, I got my bachelor’s degree in pharmaceutical chemistry in Cologne. Now, I am glad to enter the Group of Nanoparticles and Nanocomposites for an internship of six months under the supervision of Dr. Anna Laromaine. My topic will be the investigation of the effects of cellulose on the nematode C. elegans and vice versa. I’m looking forward to meeting you! 

Good luck with your project Gerrit and we all hope you enjoy your time at the N&N group! 

LLAVOR Project was awarded to the Group NN

PLANT HEALING, a project lead by Dr. Anna Laromaine from the Group Nanoparticles and Nanocomposites at the Institut of Materials Science in Barcelona (ICMAB) and in collaboration with the Group of Bacterial pathogens and plant cell death from the Center for Research in Agricultural Genomics (CRAG), was awarded by Els Fons Europeus de Desenvolupament Regional i el Departament d’Empresa i Coneixement de la Generalitat de Catalunya with a grant of 20.000€. The PLANT HEALING 2016 LLAVOR 00052 project will work to offer a novel material that could be implemented in current grafting protocols with no extra time or effort to significantly improve graft efficiency. PLANT HEALING will make an agricultural breakthrough, by developing a new nanocomposite material containing silver nanoparticles linked to bacterial nanocellulose.

 

Welcome María Jesús!

New Master’s student in the N&N group!
 
“My name is María Jesús nchez and I am from Badajoz (Spain). I have studied Biotechnology at Pablo Olavide University (Seville). Now, I am studying a Master’s Degree in Advanced Nanoscience and Nanotechnology in UAB. I will be doing my masters final thesis with the N&N group under the supervision of Anna Laromaine and Irene Anton.  I will study the interactions between bacterial nanocellulose and growth factors.”
 
We wish you all the best for your project María Jesús!
