ANA ARCHÉ, MATERPLAT PRIZE TO BEST MASTER'S THESIS14th November 2018
Ana Arché has been awarded with the Materplat Prize to Young Materials Researchers. The Prize recognizes the innovative training of new professionals in the field of Materials Science in Spain, and are awarded to the two Best Master's Thesis related to the development of Advanced Materials and Nanonomaterials with clear industrial applications. The Prize has been awarded to Arché for her work on "Fabrication and response to neural cells of metallic nanoelectrodes" for the EU project ByAxon, under the supervision of Teresa González and M. Concepción Serrano.
Materplat is the Spanish Technological Platform on Advanced Materials and Nanomaterials, formed by members from industrial and public sectors, and funded by the Spanish Ministry of Economy, Industry and Competitiveness.
BYAXON IN THE EUROPEAN RESEARCHERS' NIGHT 20181st October 2018
The project ByAxon participated in the European Researchers' Night 2018, held on the 28th September at IMDEA Nanociencia, in Madrid. The partners Concepción Serrano (ICMM-CSIC), Lucas Sanchez and Rubén Guerrero (IMDEA Nanociencia) presented to a group of interested people the fundamentals of ByAxon research in the form of talks and interactive activities for a young and general public. In total, 33 visitors attended the activities.
The workshops were organized jointly with young scientists of IMDEA Nanociencia. During the workshops, the attendees learned what is a magnetic field, what are the magnetic signals generated by the neurons, and made the steps to build up a nanoelectrode.
To finish, the visitors could have a look to the "European Corner", where microscope images of the research carried on at ICMM and IMDEA were displayed.
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. ByAxon is an european research and innovation project funded by the Horizon 2020 program and under Future and Emerging Technologies frame.

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.
