8TH EARLY STAGE RESEARCHERS WORKSHOP14th June 2018
Today, our partners Vicente Muñoz and Beatriz Rodilla have been presenting the project ByAxon at the Early Stage Researchers Workshop ESRW. The ESRW is an initiative of IMDEA Nanociencia that began in 2010 with the purpose of bringing together early carreer scientists from different disciplines to present their research work in the field of nanoscience to the public for the first time. Currently, the workshop is organized by and for young researchers, and the objective is to encourage participation in the dissemination of science, create academic links and strengthen collaborations among future research pledges. This year 2018, the 8th edition of the workshop has been celebrated, with the participation of over 80 attendees.
Vicente has contributed with a poster, whilst Beatriz contributed with an oral communication. The full programme of the workshop can be visualized here.
I SPANISH CONFERENCE ON BIOMEDICAL APPLICATIONS OF NANOMATERIALS11th June 2018
The ByAxon consortium has had a strong presence in the 1st Spanish Conference on Biomedical Applications on Nanomaterials (SBAN). The conference was held in Madrid, at Instituto de Ciencia de Materiales de Madrid. SBAN is aimed to provide a unique opportunity for discussing the leading edge research and progress in the field of Nanomedicine. The average audience of the conference was over 200 people.
Concepción Serrano (ICMM) opened the 1st Spanish Conference on Biomedical Applications of Nanomaterials, SBAN18. In her talk, Dr. Serrano discussed the possibilities of "Graphene nanomaterials as a new opportunity for neural repair after spinal cord injury" and introduced the project ByAxon to the audience.
Our partner Beatriz Rodilla was giving an oral presentation on some of the results that IMDEA, CSIC and SESCAM are having on the project.
V SIMPOSIUM OF YOUNG RESEARCHERS IQFR29th May 2018
Beatriz Rodilla (IMDEA Nanociencia) is presenting today an oral contribution in the V Simposium of Young Researchers of IQFR, entitled "Nanotecnology for neural activity measurement and stimulation". This contribution is the joint research of ByAxon partners Lucas Pérez, Ana Domínguez, Ankor González, María Concepción Serrano, and the PIs of the project Rodolfo Miranda and Teresa González.
The simposium is organized every year by IQFR, the institute of Physical Chemistry of the Spanish Research Council (CSIC). This year is attended by over 50 senior and young researchers investigating in the fields of chemistry and physics.

PhD / first stage researcher (closed)Application deadline: 9th May 2018
The PhD candidate will work on the FET Project entitled "Towards an active bypass for neural reconnection — ByAxon" targeting to develop an active bypass based on nanotechnology aiming to neural reconnection directly at the spinal cord level. The researcher will focus on materials science and spintronics, designing metal and magnetic nanowire and characterizing them with microscopic and spectroscopic techniques, including electron microscopies, magnetometry, magneto-transport and synchrotron radiation techniques.
