BYAXON PARTICIPATES IN FUTURE TECH WEEK3rd September 2019
Future Tech Week is an initiative of the European Innovation Council Pathfinder in order to provide a snapshot of what is currently brewing in Europe's tech sphere and the science that creates tomorrow's technologies.
The project ByAxon will participate with a a face-to-face open-lab activity. "Connect the neuron" will be hosted by the coordinator IMDEA Nanociencia and ICMM-CSIC. Scientists from both institutions will provide to people from all ages an insight to the scientific research and project outputs of our project ByAxon.
The event is free and open to all public. Register to attend now.
CONSORTIUM GENERAL ASSEMBLY IN TOLEDO18th September 2019
The Consortium of ByAxon has gathered in Toledo (Spain) at Hospital Nacional de Parapléjicos for its general assembly. During the two-day meeting, researchers have had the opportunity to share their latests results and discuss on the progress of the project.

After the meeting, all partners had the chance to visit the premises of the hospital and share a networking evening together around Toledo.
BYAXON AT THE NATIONAL MEETING OF THE SPANISH SOCIETY OF NEUROSCIENCE10th September 2019
Last week, partners from SESCAM -Francisco Ankor González and Elisa López- plus partners from CSIC -Ana Domínguez and M. Concepción Serrano- attended the biannual Meeting of the Spanish Society of Neuroscience (SENC) to present their poster entitled "Metallic nanoelectrodes as biocompatible neural interfaces", being co-authors of the work partners from IMDEA (B. Rodilla, A. Arché, R. Miranda, T. González, J. Camarero, L. Pérez).
The 18th Meeting of the Spanish Society of Neuroscience took place in Santiago de Compostela (Spain) from September 4th to 6th, 2019. It has been attended by about 500 clinicians, researchers and students.
LUIZ GUILHERME RECEIVES THE BEST POSTER PRIZE AT ESM201919th September 2019
Luiz Guilherme (PhD student at GREYC lab) has receive the prize for the best poster presentation at the European School of Magnetism (ESM2019) for his contribution with ByAxon project results.
The school took place from Sep. 2nd to Sep. 13th in Brno, Czech Republic. The 2019 school aimed at providing a thorough understanding of a magnetism based on a broad series of fundamental lectures. Also, it wa an excellent opportunity for young scientists to meet and share their expertise.
BYAXON RESEARCHERS CELEBRATE EUROPEAN RESEARCHERS' NIGHT27th September 2019
Researchers from the project ByAxon celebrated the European Researchers' Night in the open-doors day at IMDEA Nanociencia. Mª Concepción Serrano (ICMM) and Lucas Pérez (IMDEA) welcomed a group of interested people with two talks about spinal cord injury and possibilities that science could bring to aid this condition.
After the welcome, the visitors got involved with researchers in two hands-on workshops directly at the research labs facilities at IMDEA Nanociencia.
The European Researchers' Night is a scientific dissemination project promoted by the European Commission within the Marie Sktodowska-Curie action of the Horizon 2020 programme. The Night takes place simultaneously in more than 371 European cities since 2005 every last Friday in September. This year, ERN activities at IMDEA Nanociencia were included within the Future Tech Week.
