Description

This unit, integrated in the Nanostructured Films and Particles Group at the Institute of Nanoscience of Aragón (INA) coordinated by Dr. Jesús Santamaría, has as objective the synthesis of nanoparticles with applications in biomedicine. The unit provides an automated system for the synthesis of nanoparticles using laser-induced pyrolysis of chemical precursors in gas and/or aerosol phase, which enable either individual nanoparticles or biocompatible hybrid nanostructures to be produced in large quantities. In addition, this facility is able to draw on a wide range of nanoparticles fabrication technique, as well as having the necessary specialized personnel, to undertake exhaustive characterization of the microstructure, chemical composition, particles size and distribution of sizes, as well as magnetic, optical and colloidal properties and degree of biological functionality of the synthesized material.

Researchers of NANBIOSIS U9 awarded for a work on scaffolds for dental regeneration

Researchers Manuel Arruebo and Víctor Sebastián, from the CIBER-BBN group led by Jesús Santamaría (NFP) at the University of Zaragoza, that coordinates NANBIOSIS Unit 9 Synthesis of Nanoparticles, have received the second prize of the Resomer Awards granted by the company Evonik, a international recognition to competitiviness. Their work “Promoting bioengineered tooth innervation using nanostructured and hybrid scaffolds”, has been published in the journal Acta Biomaterialia 50 (2017) 493-501. In this work, the researchers of the CIBER-BBN manufactured biodegradable materials such as scaffolds to promote dental regeneration. These scaffolds contained an immunosuppressive drug that, in addition to avoiding rejection after implantation,[...]

Jesús Santamaría, interviewed in the Cadena Ser Radio, denounces the bureaucratic barriers that hinder research.

Jesús Santamaría, Scientific Director of NANBIOSIS Unit 9, Synthesis of Nanoparticles Unit, denounces the bureaucratic obstacles of the Law of Contracts, which are paralyzing the investigations whenever it is necessary to buy material or hire personnel.  His research against cancer, which received one of the most powerful European funding of more than two million euros, is stranded because of this rule, which requires to take out any purchase over 15,000 euros. “You can not do research like that,” Santamaría said. “In other countries there are no obstacles and we have to compete with them” With the entry into force on March 9 of[...]

NANOMEDICINE APPLICATIONS IN DRUG DELIVERY AND TARGETING: NANBIOSIS – NANOMED Industrial Forum

Yesterday took place in Barcelona, at Barcelona School of Management, Universitat Pompeu Fabra, a meeting of resarch groups and units of NANBIOSIS and CIBER-BBN and companies in the third B2B Forum organized by NANBIOSIS, in this case together with NANOMED SPAIN. Thirteen companies and twelve groups from CIBER-BBN and CCMIJU (ten of them coordinating NANBIOSIS units) got together to explain, through short presentations of ten minutes, those lines of their work aimed at finding synergies and potential collaborations in the area of Nanomedicine apllications in drug delivery and targeting. There was also a talk by a  representative of CDTI (Spanis[...]
