NANBIOSIS in the NEW BOOK of the Unique Science and Technology Infrastructures (ICTS)

We are pleased to inform that the new book of Unique Scientific and Technical Infrastructures (ICTS) has been published by the Spanish Ministery of Sciencie and Innovation with the collaborations of the ICTS. You can download it download it here.

The Spanish Map of Unique Science and Technology Infrastructures (ICTS, in Spanish) , goups biomedical technologies, cleanrooms, supercomputers, advanced lasers, telescopes, underground laboratories, synchrotrons, particle accelerators, biological reserves, solar, oceanic and hydraulic platforms, oceanographic research ships, and polar bases in Antarctica. A total of 29 ICTS, made up of 64 infraestructures, allow for ambitious research projects that attract first-rate talent and enhance the technological and innovative industry capacities.

As Diana Morant, Spanish Minister of Science and Innovation says in its prelude “The Unique Science and Technology Infrastructures (ICTS), are crucial for the current country project around science and innovation that we are building together: administrations, research and technology centers, companies and society. I encourage you to go through the pages of this book and discover avant-garde facilities that represent the excellent scientific and technological capabilities that exist today in Spain.

7th Annual Meeting of the Unique Science and Technology Infrastructures in Spain

On September 7, the annual meeting of the directors of the 29 Singular Scientific and Technical Infrastructures (ICTS) of Spain took place in Seville.

The event was organized in five round tables:

Table 1 Development of in-house technology in ICTs and its transfer
Table 2 ICTS response to crisis situations: the COVID19 pandemic and the La Palma volcano eruption
Table 3 Digital Continuum: data management and processing in ICTS
Table 4 Provision of shared ICT Services: connectivity and cybersecurity, implementation of open science in the cloud
Table 5 Stimulation of scientific vocations and social interest in ICTS
Table 6 National and international cooperation between ICTS

The Scientific Director of NANBIOSIS, Jaume Veciana, spoke at Table 5 dedicated to “Stimulation of scientific vocations and social interest in Unique Science and Technology Infrastructures (ICTS)” in which also participated the ICTS Center for Pulsed Lasers, the Astronomical Center Hispanic in Andalusia (CAHA), the National Center for Research on Human Evolution (CENIEH), the Spanish Institute of Oceanography (IEO), the Great Telescope of the CANARY ISLANDS and the Spanish Supercomputing Network (RES).

The meeting was attended by the Minister of Science and Innovation, Diana Morant, who recalled that she remembered that the 29 ICTS contribute to providing solutions from science to present and future challenges and, in addition, are a lever of opportunities throughout the Spanish territory. In total, more than 2,300 people work in these facilities, which have an annual budget of more than 250 million euros.

The minister also highlighted that the reform of the Science, Technology and Innovation Law of September 5, 2022, regulates the for the first time. ICTS Map

Philipps-Universität Marburg (Germany) -NANBIOSIS U25 collaboration on the study of tumour microenvironment (TME) changes in Glioblastoma

The scientific coordinator of NANBIOSIS U25 “RNM: Biomedical Application I”, Ana Paula Candiota, was recently awarded with a mobility fellowship from CIBER-BBN for a scientific exchange visit to Philipps-Universität Marburg, in Marburg, Germany.


This scientific stage was motivated for a sustained collaboration between the research groups (GABRMN, in charge of U25 and Neurosurgery Lab group in Marburg), regarding the study of tumour microenvironment (TME) changes in Glioblastoma and possible relationship with the noninvasive MRSI-based biomarkers. Both groups have applied together to different funding calls including ERA-NET Transcan and Pathfinder Open, and Marburg group has hosted a predoctoral stage from a GABRMN PhD student.

The University of Marburg is the university with the longest tradition in Hesse, founded in 1527. With thirteen Leibniz Prize winners, the University of Marburg is one of the leading research institutions in the State of Hesse. Related to the Medicine Faculty of the Philipps University of Marburg is the Uniklinikum Giessend Und Marburg (UKGM), in which the Neurosurgery Lab, lead by Prof. Jörg-Walter Bartsch, is located. This group is hosting Dr. Candiota stage until September 9th.

The main objectives of this short stage are to strength the scientific collaboration, to finish pending work related to TME GL261 glioblastoma, to get familiarized with some approaches used in Marburg and not mastered by GABRMN, and finally to give a talk to group and clinical members, highlighting the potential of U25 and the translational characteristics of the common projects held by both institutions.
