New publication co-authored by Sole Roig and Anna Laromaine!

The N&N researchers Sole Roig and Anna Laromained are co-authors of the publication “Enzymically attaching oligosaccharide-linked ‘cargoes’ to cellulose and other commercial polysaccharides via stable covalent bondsrecently published on the International Journal of Biological Macromolecules.

Congratulations to them and their collaborators!

Anna Roig and Anna Laromaine presented our research at the nanoMATERIALS & PLANTS: ICMAB-CRAG meeting

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.

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.


Hot from the press: Two more published papers!

We congratulate two N&N researchers for two new publicationsMarti Gich for his third publication within a very short period of time and Anna Roig who is a co-author of one of the two recent publications. Both studies have been done together with other ICMAB researchers and collaborators from other institutions.

Lab Cleaning day in the N&N Group!

Irene, Laura, Iván, Pol and Jordi organizing the chemicals and the disposable material.

Today, Wednesday 13th July, was the day for the lab cleaning! All the group participated in the lab cleaning, and everyone was willing to cooperate and help in the cleaning tasks. 

Who would miss the day we spend every three months organizing drawers of forgotten equipment, cleaning the hoods with different solvents trying to remove the stains, and updating long lists of reactives and lab material?! 

Thank you to everyone! And a big thank you to Pol Sallés, who has been lab manager for the last 3 months and has organized today’s lab cleaning!

Anna and Teresa cleaning the refrigerator, and Judit and Qianzhe updating the security cabinet chemicals list.
Deyaa, Adrià and Ander disposing the old waste and organizing the new waste containers and labels.
