Spain – Aragonese Institute of Materials Science (ICMA), University of Zaragoza/CSIC

Short description of the Spain group:

The Nanotechnology and Apoptosis (NAP) group at the Institute of Material Science at CSIC-University of Zaragoza (Spain), leaded by Dr. Jesus M de la Fuente, is a pluridisciplinary laboratory focused in the field of nanoscience, nanomaterials and nanomedicine.

This team is one of the Europe’s leading groups in nanoscience, working on multifunctional magnetic and gold nanoparticles for biomedical applications, nanobiosensors and applications of nanotechnology in preservation of cultural heritage.

NAP research expertise includes

- biofunctionalization of nanoparticles

- glyconanobiotechnology

- nanobiosensors

- magnetic hyperthermia

- drug delivery

- cell-material interactions and

- biomolecular recognition studies

Dr. Jesus M de la Fuente is also a Chair Professor at Shanghai Jiao Tong University since 2013.
