Located in the Cell Culture Unit, Faculty of Medicine, University of Alcalá, has a room perfectly suited to host a Confocal Microscope service that provides 4 lasers and cell incubation cabin. This Unit is coordinated by Dr. Juan Manuel Bellón, PI of the Translational Research and Tissue Engineering Group at the University of Alcalá.
FOR THOSE SERVICES IDENTIFIED AS OUTSTANDING, AT LEAST 20% OF THEIR CAPACITY IS OPEN UNDER COMPETITIVE ACCESS. SEE ANNEX 1 OF ACCESS PROTOCOL FOR DETAILS ON % OF OPENNESS FOR EACH SERVICE
On February 22nd, the National School of Health of the Carlos III Health Institute hosted the forum on Smart Biomaterials and biomedical devices for applications in drug delivery and regenerative medicine, organized by the ICTS Nanbiosis, an infrastructure shared by the CIBER-BBN and the Center of Minimally Invasive Surgery Jesus Usón (CCMIJU). This is the first groups/companies meeting organized by Nanbiosis, in which about 70 B2B meetings were held. The meeting brought together about 40 participants from 14 research groups (from the CIBER-BBN and the CCMIJU) and 10 companies, which discussed the latest advances in the research lines developed by the groups[...]
Last 13 and 14 of November, CIBER-BBN has celebrated its 11th Annual Conference in Hotel Santemar in Santander. In this conference there was a poster session with the participation of the following Units of NANBIOSIS. Special mention deserves Unit 1 with Neus Ferrer as Director and Paolo Saccardo as Coordinator (in the picture): Posters: U1. Protein Production Platform (PPP): Engineering protein complexes as nano- or micro-structured vehicles or drugs for human and veterinary medicine. Ugutz Unzueta, Naroa Serna, Laura Sánchez-García, José Vicente Carratalá, Olivia Cano-Garrido, Mercedes Márquez, Paolo Saccardo, Rosa Mendoza, Raquel Díaz, Héctor, López-Laguna, Julieta Sánchez, Anna Obando, Amanda Muñoz, Andrés Cisneros, Eric Voltà, Aida Carreño, José[...]
Juan Manuel Bellón and Gemma Pascual, Scientific Director and Coordinator of Unit 17 of NANBIOSIS, have recently published an article in the prestigious journal Tissue Eng Part C Methods. Once a prosthetic material is implanted, an inflammatory reaction is induced in an attempt to remove it or isolate it from the host tissue. After this initial response, a cellular response takes place that gives rise to the start of the process of integration of the biomaterial within the host tissue. Immunohistochemical studies can provide information on the events that regulate this process, and are useful to analyze the progression of t[...]
Verónica Gómez-Gil, collaborator in Unit 17 of NANBIOSIS and the GITBIT-UAH group (CIBER-BBN), has been the first prizewinner in the Best Abstract Competition at the symposium “New horizons in prevention and treatment of adhesions” organized by the Dutch Adhesion Group (DAG) at the 52nd meeting of the European Society for Surgical Reseach (ESSR). The ESSR 2017 meeting was held in Amsterdam from 14th till 17th June. The title of the abstract, presented as a quick-shot presentation and a full oral during the congress, was: An experimental adhesiogenic model to evaluate histological events over time in the omentum during adhesion formation.[...]
