BYAXON IS PARTICIPATING IN THE EUROPEAN RESEARCHERS' NIGHT 201816th July 2018
Our project will participate in the European Researchers' Night 2018, that will be held on the 28th September. The European Researchers' Night is is a pan-European scientific event taking place on the last Friday night of September; the event receives funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme- Marie Sklodowska-Curie actions- under Grant Agreement No. 818528. The partners Concepción Serrano, Lucas Sanchez and Rubén Guerrero will present to a group of interested people the fundamentals of ByAxon research in the form of talks and interactive activities.

HIGHSCHOOL STUDENTS GET TO KNOW BYAXON PROJECT IN CNRS-GREYC LAB6th June 2018
The CNRS-GREYC lab has participated to the French national action “Apprentis chercheurs” in order to present the ByAxon project. From January to June 2018, one Wednesday afternoon per month, 2 young middle and high school students participated to the research activities in the lab. They could learn how to deposit thin films using Pulsed Laser Deposition, what is a sensor, how to produce magnetic field by using electrical current, what are analogic and numerical signals. On Wednesday June 6th 2018, they presented their project in front of all the other young researchers, their teachers and their parents.
Thanks and congratulations to Virgile and Arnaud for their participation to the project.
MASTER'S THESIS OF ANA ARCHÉ28th June 2018
Ana Arché Núñez has defended successfully her Master's Thesis "Fabrication and response to neural cells of metallic nanoelectrodes" with an excellent mark of 9.5/10. The thesis, defended at Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, was directed jointly by our ByAxon's parthers Teresa González and Mª Concepción Serrano and conducted at IMDEA Nanociencia and Instituto de Ciencia de Materiales (CSIC).
8TH EARLY STAGE RESEARCHERS WORKSHOP14th June 2018
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.

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.
