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.

“Have we lernt the lesson?”

Heraldo de Aragón publishes today an opinion article written by Jesús Santamaría, Scientific Director of Nanbiosis U9 Synthesis of Nanoparticles Unit about the COVID19 Pandemic in the relation with the investment in R&D. The proffesor at the University of Zaragoza makes a quick review on the the main milestones reached by researchers to fight the COVID 19: “In early December some Wuhan residents start to get sick after visiting a local market, with what looked like flu symptoms. Nevertheless, Chinese health officials report to World Health Organization on New Year’s Eve that a group of patients presented a new ty[...]

Killing cancer from starvation or by toxicity with Trojan horses.

Jesús Santamaría, who leads the NFP research group of CIBER-BBN and the Institute of Nanoscience of Aragon (INA), at the University of Zaragoza, in an interview on October 29 to Aragon TV, talks about the problems in the fight against cancer and explains in a very didactic way, the solutions that are being approached from his research group, in collaboration with other groups. It would consists, basically, in reducing the tumor from inside the tumor cells. Prof. Santamaria has been granted funding twice from the European Research Council (ERC) Advanced Grant program for catalysis-related projects, the last one with two[...]

“Matrioskas” of nanoparticles, a new therapeutic approach against tuberculosis

Researchers of NANBIOSIS U9 Synthesis of Nanoparticles Unit Manuel Arruebo and Víctor Sebastián have participated in a research published in the journal Nanomedicine Tuberculosis is an infectious disease that poses a serious public health problem and, according to WHO data, 10.4 million people became ill with tuberculosis and 1.7 million died in 2016. Therefore, advance in the development of new tools for diagnosis and treatment is essential and the use of nanoparticles could open a new horizon to deal with the infections caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis. In this line, researchers from the CIBER at the University of Zaragoza, and at[...]
