Madrid, 7-8 JUNE 2018: 1st Spanish Conference on Biomedical Applications of Nanomaterials (SBAN)

The Instituto de Ciencia de Materiales de Madrid (ICMM-CSIC) organizes the 1st Spanish Conference on Biomedical Applications of Nanomaterials (SBAN) on June 7-8, 2018. SBAN is expected to provide a unique opportunity for discussing the cutting-edge research and progress in the field of nanomedicine.

To promote discussions, SBAN will bring together those researchers, senior and junior, working in the vast field of nanomedicine. Through plenary, short talks and posters, the conference will cover the main aspects of this field by leading researchers working in Spain. SBAN will have a broad audience of people interested in this field with different backgrounds, from chemistry and biology to physics and medicine.

    Unfortunately, our good friend, collaborator and benefactor or many ICMAB researchers, Dr. Massimo Marezio, passed away last May 13, 2019, in his hometown, Rome. Prof. Xavier Obradors, who met him while he was doing his PhD thesis in Grenoble, has written him some words as an obituary in the form of a last personal letter.

  • Since 20 May 2019 our measurements are attached to nature constants

    On May 20, 2019, this year's World Metrology Day, the changes in the definitions of the International System of Units (SI) were accepted. All the units, now, depend on the laws of nature, instead of depending on physical artefacts. The "Big Kilo" as we knew it, will no longer be the reference to the "kilo". Instead, this unit will be based on the Planck constant, as the "meter" is based on the speed of light. In the redefinition, four of the seven SI base units – the kilogram, ampere, kelvin, and mole – were redefined by setting exact numerical values for the Planck constant (h), the elementary electric charge (e), the Boltzmann constant (k), and the Avogadro constant (NA), respectively.
