Carlos Rodriguez-Abreu (NANBIOSIS U12) keynote speaker in OKINAWA COLLOIDS 2019


Carlos Rodriguez-Abreu, Scientific Director of NANBIOSIS U12 Nanostructured liquid characterization unit has been invited speaker at OKINAWA COLLOIDS 2019 conference in Okinawa, Japan on November 3 to 8, 2019 in the session Foams / Bubbles / Emulsions and Microemulsions.
Foams and emulsions stabilized by surfactants, amphiphilic polymers and solid particles are essential formulations for developing pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, foods and so on. Recently, many functional systems have been proposed including stimuli responsive materials, biocompatible materials, and environmental affinity materials. The topics of this session include a wide range of subjects: physical properties, phase behaviors and new functions of these systems.

Formulation of emulsions: Science behind cosmetics at COSMETORIUM

Carlos Rodríguez-Abreu, Scientific Director of NANBIOSIS Unit 12 Nanostructured liquid characterization unit, from Institute of Advanced Chemistry of Catalonia, Higher Council for Scientific Research (IQAC-CSIC) and CIBER of Bioengineering, Biomaterials and Nanomedicine (CIBER-BBN) has participated in the fourth edition of COSMETORIUM, given a talk on “Recent advances in the formulation of emulsions”

The fair of Cosmetorium, which was held at the Palau de Congresos de Barcelona on October 23 and 24, is organized by the Spanish Society of Cosmetic Chemists (SEQC), begun with keynote conferences and a scientific program, which examined the key problems facing the cosmetic and personal care industry, on issues such as global regulatory problems and science technology.

COSMETORIUM is a forum on creation, formulation, manufacture and distribution of cosmetic products, ranging from the development of the idea of a product until its arrival to consumers that highlighs the importance of Spain as a center of excellence in the cosmetic industry. In fact, Cosmetorium has joined the Formulating Cosmetics & Making Cosmetics series of events that have achieved great success in Italy and the United Kingdom, with over a thousand attendees.

NANO TECHNOLOGIES AND MICROENCAPSULATION course

Next October 15-18, the researchers of NANBIOSIS U12, Nanostructured liquid characterization unit, are giving a course on Nano Technologies and Microencapsulation organized by CSIC General Foundation and CUIMPB – Center Ernest Lluch of the Menéndez Pelayo International University (UIMP) in Barcelona.

The nano- and microencapsulation consists in the protection of active substances inside nano- and microcarriers, particularly labile molecules, improving their stability, with the aim of transporting them and achieving their controlled release. This topic is the subject of great interest in numerous fields and industrial applications. It is known that the performance efficiency of an active substance greatly increases with its encapsulation, depending on the size of the capsules, their transfer surface and the permeability properties of said capsules. In addition, the capsules can be directed specifically inside an organism, using suitable vectors.
The object of the course is to provide attendees with the basics of micro- and nanoencapsulation techniques, including fundamentals and preparation methods, as well as innovative applications in the chemical, cosmetic and pharmaceutical fields, among others.

The registration form and detailed information can be found on the CUIMPB website

3D cross-correlation dynamic light scattering (DLS) spectrometer of NANBIOSIS U12 has been upgraded

The 3D cross-correlation dynamic light scattering (DLS) spectrometer of NANBIOSIS U12 Nanostructured liquid characterization unit has been upgraded with a new goniometer and last generation laser detectors and beam splitters that allow to extend the scattering angle detection range to 10-150 degrees, and enables measurements in shorter scattering lengths for highly turbid and/or concentrated samples. Non-ergodic samples (e.g. gels) can also be measured with the new configuration

The upgrade has been funded by CSIC through the grant “Special fund for the support of Scientific and Technical Services 2018” (02045)

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 (Spanish National Center for Industrial and Technological Development) to explain the financing opportunities for the companies as well as a presentation by the NANBIOSIS Coordinator, Jesús Izco, to show the new Cutting Edge Biomedical Solutions offered by the ICTS-NANBIOSIS

After lunch, the groups and companies had the opportunity to discuss in more detail, during bilateral interviews coordinated by NANBIOSIS a, those aspects that had attracted their attention, as well as, in some cases, to draw potential collaborations. The event was successfully developed with 45 attendees and more than 50 individual B2B mettings.

Formulated Products: Enabling innovation through value chain and cross-sector collaboration

NANBIOSIS Unit 12. “Nanostructured liquid characterization unit” is co-organizing, next 28th May 2018, in Barcelona, the Workshop “Enabling Innovation through Value Chain and Cross-sector Collaboration” corresponding to the 5th Event of the Regional workshop series of the AceForm4.0 consortium (a coordination and support action (CAS) funded by the European Commission).

This event targets industrial and academic players interested in bringing formulation technologies to the next level through collaboration. The main purpose of the day is to validate the recommendations that will be presented to the European Commission (EC) as to what are the areas of research that should be prioritized in the coming framework programs in the context of formulated products. These recommendations, which been put together within the context of AceForm4.0, will be validated by participants during short discussion sessions.

During the day inspiring speakers from industry will help illustrate some of the technical challenges within specific industrial sectors or segments of the value chain while experienced representatives from academia will showcase examples from collaborative research projects in the area.

The event will be an excellent opportunity for networking with local and European players in the formulation area and to learn more about how to stay in touch by joining the EU-FIG (formulation-network.eu/members/join-the-eu-formulation-interest-group), the emerging European Formulation Interest Group.

During the event, it will be possible to:

  • Listen to inspiring speakers from industry who will illustrate some of the challenges (technical and others) within specific industrial sectors or segments of the value chain
  • Listen to experienced representatives from academia who will showcase examples from collaborative research projects in the area
  • Help validate the recommendations that will be presented to the European Comission (EC) as to what are the areas of research that should be prioritized in the coming framework programs in the context of formulated products
  • Network with local and European players in the formulation area
  • Learn more about how to stay in touch by joining the EU-FIG, the emerging European Formulation Interest Group
