All the N&N researchers working with the model organism C.elegans attended the last 28-29 March 2019 the VII Spanish Worm Meeting (SWM). They were very active participants! One oral presentation was given by Zhongrui Luo (“Evaluation of the nano-bio interaction between superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles and Caenorhabditis elegans¨). Amanda Muñoz and Sumithra Srinivasan presented their work in a poster format. Good job!
From the 20th to the 22nd of November 2018 the PhD fellow Irene Anton attended to the NanoBio&Med conference organized at the Parc Científic of de Barcelona. This multidisciplinary congress was very useful to catch up with the recent advances in the rapidly evolving field of nanobiotechnology. Irene got the opportunity to present her results regarding bacterial nanocellulose interactions with human cells with both a poster and a talk. Her poster entitled “Bacterial nanocellulose and bacterial nanocellulose nanocomposites as substrates for cell culture” was selected for the best poster award sponsored by the journal Biomolecules MDPI.
From September 26th to 28th, the postdoc researcher from the N&N group Dr. Carlos Moya attended the International Conference on Nanomedicine and Nanobiotechnology (ICONAN 2018) in Rome (Italy). He gave a talk about “Human serum Albumin pre-formed on SPIONS”.
From September 10th to 14th, the Energy Materials and Nanotechnology meeting focused on cellulose took place in the UAB Campus, Barcelona. Sole Roig and Anna Roig from the N&N group, actively participated in this event: Anna Roig chaired two general sessions and delivered the talk “Topography modifications and nanocomposites of bacterial nanocellulose” and Sole Roig orally presented her work “Confined nanoparticle multilayer bacterial cellulose composite”.
Miquel Torras, PhD student at the N&N group, travelled to Madrid to attend the 3rd International Conference on Polyol Mediated Synthesis (ICPMS) held at the Instituto de Ciencia de Materiales de Madrid (ICMM). Miquel presented the talk “Fast and Simple Microwave Synthesis of Multicomponent Gold Nanoparticles”.
From the 25th to the 29th of June of 2017, Sitges hosted the XXVI Biennial Meeting of the Spanish Royal Society of Chemistry. SoledadRoig, from the N&N group, attended this big congress and gave a talk entitled: Engineering Bacterial Cellulose. She presented her results on the creation of multi-functional materials combining layers of functionalized bacterial cellulose with diverse nanoparticles.
The NANOSELECT Annual Meeting in Sant Feliu de Guíxols has ended.The meeting has been full of talks about different topics, such as functional oxides, ferromagnetic materials, superconductors (YBCO and others), semiconductors for water splitting, Nanocosmos, alternatives of Li-ion batteries, and many other interesting topics. The meeting was held in Eden Roc, a nice hotel in Sant Feliu de Guíxols, between 8th and 19th June.
Here you can find the contributions of the N&N Group, Martí Gich giving the talk “Ferroelectric domains and polarization switching ine-Fe2O3“, and the poster “Magnetic properties above room temperature in magnetoelectric e-Fe2O3“, and Anna May with the poster ““Photocatalytic hybrid nanocomposites of bacterial cellulose and Au/TiO2 nanoparticles for hydrogen production“.
