Excellent cum laude for Laura González thesis on “Evaluating inorganic nanoparticles in the living organism C. elegans”!
Sofía Rubio, Ph.D. student of the Inorganic Nanoparticles Group at ICN2, presented the thesis “Increasing the resolution at the nanobiointerface with engineering inorganic nanoparticles”, which was supervised by the Group Leader, Víctor F. Puntes. The presentation took place on September 23, at 11.30 am at the ICN2 Seminar Room.
Anna Laromaine was part of the Thesis Defense Committee.
Nerea Murillo-Cremaes will defend her PhD thesis entitled:
MULTIFUNCTIONAL SILICA-BASED NANOPARTICLES FOR BIOMEDICAL APPLICATIONS
The thesis has been supervised by Dr. Concha Domingo and Dr. Anna Roig.
The thesis jury will be formed by Prof Daniel Ruiz-Molina, Institut Català de Nanociencia i Nanotecnologia, Nanosfun Group, Bellaterra, Catalonia, Prof Vadim Kessler, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, Department of Chemistry and Biotechnology, Sweden and Prof Julio San Román, Biomaterials Group, Instituto de Ciencia y Tecnologia de Polimeros (CSIC), Madrid, Spain
This thesis aimed to fabricate hybrid (organic-inorganic) complex materials as drug carriers using supercritical fluids. For that purpose, two main objectives have been addressed: first, evaluation of the potentiality of porous silica-based materials synthesized without using porogenic agents as drug delivery systems; and second, exploiting the utility of SCFs in the synthesis and functionalization of those materials. During the realization of this work, silica-based nanostructured materials have been synthesized, loaded with a model drug, physical and chemically modified on their surface, and their interaction with relevant biological entities and media were investigated.
CONGRATULATIONS to her from all the n&n group members!
Muling has already accepted a post-doc at Leeds University in UK, where she is planning to start in January
Muling Zeng has spent three years in our group and tomorrow will be her big day!
She will defend a PhD thesis entitled “Bacterial cellulose: fabrication, characterization and biocompatibility studies”
