In nature, cells react to complex mechanical and biological stimuli whose understanding is essential for tissue construction in regenerative medicine. A review how research progresses toward the design of integrative, holistic scaffold platforms based on the exploration of individual mechanical and biological effectors and their further combination has been published in Nanomedicinejournal.
Integrating mechanical and biological control of cell proliferation through bioinspired multieffector materials. J. Seras-Franzoso, W. I Tatkiewicz, E. Vazquez, E. García Fruitós, I. Ratera, J. Veciana, A. Villaverde.

Participation of the NANOMOL group in the Mobile World Centre 2015 exhibition of devices fabricated in the framework of collaboration with the Ramón Llull University - La Salle Campus Barcelona
The curious Link device was presented in the section Music in the air. This device allows composing music with the coloured harp by bringing one's hands close to its surfaces. This instrument integrates nanosensors developed by the NANOMOL group which detect variations in temperatures. The sensor placed inside the musical instrument sense the temperature differences between the ambient and the hand and activates the different sounds. This sensor is constructed as a versatile film which allows it to be installed easily in different materials.

The agreement will allow the development and commercialization of a nanoformulated protein for the improved treatment of diabetic foot ulcers.
This license agreement arises from the patent generated through a co-operation between the research group of Prof. Jaume Veciana and Dra. Nora Ventosa belonging to the Institute of Materials Science of Barcelona of CSIC, and the Center for Genetics Engineering and Biotechnology (CIGB) from the scientific polo of Havana Cuba.
