Premio Expoquimia I+D+I

"En la categoría de Química, el proyecto "Diseño, síntesis y evaluación de la actividad antiviral de nuevos inhibidores de entrada del VIH" de los profesores José Borrell y Jordi Teixidó del Grupo de Ingeniería Molecular del Instituto Químico de Sarrià se ha hecho con el Premio. Han generado unos nuevos inhibidores de la molécula CXC4R, causante de las infecciones provocadas por el Virus Inmunodeficiencia Adquirida (VIH), origen del Síndrome de Inmunodeficiencia Adquirida (SIDA). Este hallazgo permitirá la creación de un nuevo fármaco más eficaz contra esta enfermedad.

La mención especial del jurado ha sido para el proyecto empresarial Nanomol Technologies, de los profesores Jaume Veciana, Nora Ventosa y Santi Sala del Departamento de Nanociencia Molecular y Materiales Orgánicos del Instituto de Ciencia de Materiales de Barcelona del CSIC. Este proyecto ha desarrollado una plataforma para fabricar nanomedicinas."

Ingrid Cañero ha rebut el Premi Extraordinari de Doctorat en Ciència de Materials del curs 2007/2008

ingrid_canero

El Premi Extraordinari de Doctorat en Ciència de Materials 2007/08 de la Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona ha estat concedit a la Dra. Ingrid Cañero Infante, que realitzà la seva tesi doctoral a l'Institut de Ciència de Materials de Barcelona (ICMAB-CSIC) sota la direcció del Prof. Josep Fontcuberta i Griñó i del Dr. Florencio Sánchez Barrera. En finalitzar la Tesis, va ser contractada com a investigadora post-doctoral durant 2 anys a la Unitée Mixte CNRS-Thales (Palaiseau, França). Actualment és Professora-Investigadora al laboratori de Structures, Propriétés et Modélisation des Solides de l'Ecole Centrale Paris (França).

 

La Dra. Ingrid Cañero Infante, en acabar la seva llicenciatura en física per la Universitat de Barcelona en 2003, realitzà una estada d'iniciació a la recerca a l'ICMAB en la que investigà processos de optimització de superfícies de cristalls per al seu ús com a substrats en el dipòsit de capes primes d'òxids funcionals. A partir d'aquest primer contacte amb el laboratori, s'interessà en aprofundir l'estudi de capes primes d'òxids dins del marc d'una tesi doctoral. L'objectiu de la tesis va ser el desenvolupament de materials per a unions túnel magnètiques. El treball es va focalitzar en el creixement de pel·lícules nanomètriques d'elèctrodes La2/3Ca1/3MnO3 sobre substrats amb diferent simetria i composició [SrTiO3(001) i SrTiO3(110)], estudiar el seu paper en les propietats de magnetotransport i estructurals del les capes i com aquestes és modifiquen quan es creix, a sobre, la capa prima aïllant que constituirà la barrera túnel.

Aquest estudi és recollit dins de la tesi "(001) and (110) La2/3Ca1/3MnO3 epitaxial ferromagnetic electrodes: a comparative study", que ha rebut la menció europea de tesi doctoral. Aquesta recerca ha donat fruit a col·laboracions internacionals i nacionals d'alt nivell, i és un treball que l'ha portat a presentar els seus resultats en congressos nacionals (2) i internacionals (9) i a publicar 20 articles científics en revistes d'alt índex d'impacte com "Physical Review B", "Applied Physics Letters" o "Nanotechnology".
