At the press conference held this morning at the San Rafael Hospital, the Rafael Hervada prize was announced. Zaida Álvarez, current researcher at IBEC, has been awarded for her pioneering research on regeneration of spinal cord injuries using nanotechnology at the Northwestern University, Chicago, USA.
The research carried at the “Biomaterials for regenerative therapies” group at IBEC, has reached the international press. In this case, the magazine Cosmos from Bulgary has published an article explaining their research in biomaterials and the use of nanoparticles.
Professor Elisabeth Engel from IBEC, coordinator of nAngioDerm European project, presented the advances of the project at the 6th world congress of the Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine International Society (TERMIS2021). Professor Engel talked about cells-materials interactions to promote vascularization in one of the most important scientific conferences in the field of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine.
The IBEC researcher, Zaida Álvarez, has been awarded the 2nd edition of the Mike Lane Scholarship. Thus, Dr. Álvarez has been awarded, for her research in innovative regenerative therapies, almost €17,000, contributed by more than 75 patrons through a micro-patronage campaign and by the Castellers de la Vila de Gràcia.
