Last Friday, 27th May, the “Instituto de Investigación en Ingeniería de Aragón” held the “V Jornada de Jóvenes Investigadores” where phD students presented their works related to different areas: Industrial Technologies, Biomedical Engineering, Processes and Recycling and Information and Communications Technology.

David Adolfo Sampedro Puente, member of the BSICoS, group coordinator of Unit 27 of NANBIOSIS, presented the work entitled “Unscented Kalman Filter for Unobservable Parameter Estimation in Heart Cell Signals”, supervised by Jesús Fernández Bes and Esther Pueyo Paules. This work shows a methodology to estimate unobservable parameters, such as the number of the different ion channel typologies located in the cardiomyocyte membrane, from action potential (AP) signals. This methodology was validated using synthetic AP signals simulated by stochastic computational cell models. In future, this methodology will be used to real signals, recorded in human cardiomyocytes, to help to the study of the AP temporal variability characterization.

Esther Pueyo nominated for the awards Aragonese of the Year 2015 for her research on aging heart, carried through the computational capabilities of Unit 27 of NANBIOSIS  

Esther Pueyo, researcher at the group of CIBER-BBN, BSICoS, which coordinates Unit 27 of NANBIOSIS, has been nominated for awards Aragonese of the Year  in the category of science and research. Esther develops a project considered of reference by European Union that studies aging heart through mathematical and computational tools combined with experimental and clinical work aimed at proposing new markers of risk for arrhythmias.

The Newspaper El Periódico de Aragon calls for the twenty second consecutive year Aragonese of the Year, a competition that recognizes the personal and professional Aragonese citizens and groups who develop their work in different fields, always with social significance merits.

The Aragonese of the Year contest is divided into five categories, with four nominations each. One that gets the most votes will rise to the Aragonese Year award in the cathegories: Company, Sports, Human Values, Science and Research and Culture

Government of Aragón, Spain, paid tribute to the seven scientists who have a grant of European excellence and develop their projects at the University of Zaragoza: Jesús Santamaría, Diego Gutierrez, Igor Irastorza, Esther Pueyo, Manuel Arruebo, José Manuel García Aznar and Jesús Martínez de la Fuente.

President of the Government of Aragon, Javier Lambán, has personally expressed his gratitude and appreciation for the work of seven researchers from the University of Zaragoza who have been granted with projects of excellence funded by the European Research Council.

Jesús Santamaría, Scientific Director of Unit 9 of NANBIOSIS, with an Advanced Grant funded with 1.85 million euro, is working on a project to develop a microreactor that enables the industry to save energy and raw materials.

Esther Pueyo, member of the research group BSICoS of CIBER-BBN, which coordinates Unit 27 of NANBIOSIS, has a Starting Grant of 1.5 million and is studying the aging of the heart to propose new markers of risk for arrhythmias in the aging population.

Manuel Arruebo member of the research group Nanostructured films and particles of CIBER-BBN, which coordinates Unit 9 of NANBIOSIS, with a Grant Consolidator 1.5 million for the project Nanohedonism, develops injectable nanoparticles created with microfluidic reactors for the controlled and remote delivery of drugs in the treatment of chronic pain.

Pablo Laguna, Scientific Director of the Unit 27 of NANBIOSIS, presents in the Neocom Days the research lines of the group Biomedical Signal Interpretation & Computational Simulation (BSICoS) of CIBER-BBN and I3A of University of Zaragoza.

NEOCOM DAYS are organized by the Alumni Association of Telecommunications at the University of Zaragoza (AATUZ) in order to gather once a year companies, students and teachers to pool developments in the sector of new technologies in the field of Communications.

On March 2, 2016 Esther Pueyo, Tenured Professor at the University of Zaragoza and member of the research group BSICoS of CIBER-BBN, presented the research lines of this group, that coordinates Unit 27 of NANBIOSIS, and described the ERC MODELAGE project, which was awarded with a 'Starting Grant' of the European Union funded with 1.5 million euros.

The project progresses in the characterization of human heart aging and the prevention of cardiac arrhythmias. Juan Pablo Martínez, coordinator of the BSICoS group, introduced and moderated the talk, which is incardinated in the series of seminars “Ateneo de la Escuela de Ingeniería y Arquitectura”, where ideas on science, technology, scientific thinking, social and human sciences, etc, are presented and discussed.

Current technology allows addressing multi-factorial and multi-scale research of cardiac electrophysiological behavior to improve arrhythmic risk stratification in aged hearts, both on a population basis but also on an individual basis. Esther Pueyo presented the methodologies proposed in the MODELAGE project for this purpose, which integrate in silico modeling with in vitro cell and tissue analysis and in vivo assessment of electrocardiographic recordings. All these investigations will be made possible thanks to the computational capabilities of Unit 27 High Performance Computing of NANBIOSIS.
