Jan Grzelak, PhD student at the N&N group, travelled to Madrid to attend the 1st Spanish Conference on Biomedical Applications of Nanomaterials (SBAN) held at the Instituto de Ciencia de Materiales de Madrid (ICMM). Jan presented the poster “Mesoporous silica nanorods as theranostic platforms”.
Marcela, a collaborator of the N&N group, arrived the 15th May 2017 to ICMAB and will stay with us for a short time. Here a few words about her work:
“Hello, I am Marcela B. Fernández van Raap from the Instituto de Fisica de La Plata (IFLP), Argentina. I have joined Anna Roig’s group for a 18 day visit. My research interests are mainly focused on the synthesis and development of new nanomediators and nanocarriers for biomedical applications like magnetic hyperthermia, drug delivery and tissue repair.”
ICMAB organizes the summer school “Materials for Biomedical Applications”, which will present the design, development and application of new materials for a wide range of biomedical applications. The summer school is addressed to last year undergraduate, master and PhD students.
The school includes lectures from international and local speakers, hands on and management activities. As a consequence, this scientific school is an optimal opportunity to discover, learn and practise on material science focusing on fundamental science and applied research in the field of biomedicine.
The local organizing committee is formed by Arantzazu González, Anna Laromaine, Rosario Núñez, Jose Vidal-Gancedo and Gerard Tobias.
Application deadline: May 21, 2017

Today during the group meeting we said goodbye toIván, who is leaving to continue his Ph.D. thesis in Colombia. Iván is a great chemist, who works with magnetic graphene for water decontamination. We wish him a lot of success in his thesis and in his future endeavours!
On the other hand, Esther Dalfo gave us a nice talk on biomedical applications of C. elegans “Investigating neurodegeneration by using the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans”. Esther is an Associate Researcher at the Institute of Neuroscience of the UAB, specialized in neurodegeneration and human genetics. Thank you!
