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.

NANBIOSIS Scientific Women in the International Day of Women and Girls in Science

Today February 11 is the International Day of Women and Girls in Science, a day to raise awareness of the gender gap in science and technology. According to the United Nations, while yet women and girls continue to be excluded from participating fully in science, science and gender equality are vital to achieve the internationally agreed development goals, including the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Thus, in recent years, the international community has made a great effort to inspire and promote the participation of women and girls in science. NANBIOSIS wants to acknowledge  the efforts made by scientific women who struggle every day to contribut[...]

Biocidal releasing dressings of natural origin to treat topical wounds and avoid antibiotic resistance

Researchers of NANBIOSIS U9 Synthesis of Nanoparticles Unit, of the CIBER-BBN at the University of Zaragoza, use thymol as a natural biocide, a component present in the essential oils of thyme and oregano, thus fighting against the predictions that in 2050 there will be more deaths from infections associated with antibiotic-resistant bacteria than from cancer. Some topical wounds caused by burns, by surgical procedures, diabetic foot ulcers, fistulas, pressure ulcers, etc. they can become infected and become chronic, rendering current treatments ineffective. Currently, the devitalized tissue is removed, the area is cleaned, it is drained and depending on the microbia[...]
