16th Nanomaterials Webinar

Magnetic Nanoparticles for Biomedical and Environmental Applications

It is my pleasure to invite you to join the webinar on “Magnetic Nanoparticles for Biomedical and Environmental Applications” of the journal Nanomaterials.

To achieve the goal of publishing high-quality, high-impact research about the synthesis and applications magnetic nanoparticles, we have invited leaders in the field as speakers. Through our efforts, we all hope to make contributions to the development of these strategically important areas.

As part of our joint efforts, today, I am pleased to host the webinar fully dedicated to Magnetic Nanoparticles. I am honored to introduce our distinguished invited speakers, leaders in their fields. Prof. Isabel Izquierdo-Barba from the Faculty of Pharmacy of the Complutense University, Madrid will talk about the synthesis and application of Nanomaterials to treat bone disorders. Dr. Alvaro Gallo Cordova and Prof. María del Puerto Morales of the MaMBIO group of the Institute of Material Science in Madrid (ICMM/CSIC) will talk about Microwave-assisted Synthesis of Iron Oxide Nanoparticles for Environmental Applications.

I look forward to welcoming you and “meeting” with you online at the webinar. I hope you will enjoy the inspiring and exciting speeches.

Maria del Puerto Morales is Professor at the Institute of Material Science in Madrid (ICMM/CSIC) since 2018 and MaMBIO group leader. She is coordinator of the Nanomed CSIC Hub created on 2021. She got her degree in Chemistry by the University of Salamanca in 1989 and her PhD in Material Science from the Madrid Autonomous University in 1993. From 1994 to 1996, she worked as a postdoctoral fellow at the School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Systems in the University of Wales (UK) and got her permanent position at the ICMM/CSIC in 2000. Her research activities are focused on the area of nanotechnology, in particular in the synthesis and characterization of magnetic nanoparticles, including the mechanism of particle formation, surface modification and its performance in biomedical applications such as biomolecule separation, NMR imaging, drug delivery and hyperthermia, and also in catalysis and environmental remediation. The MAMBIO Group, integrated in the Nanoscience and Nanotechnology Department from the Institute of Materials Science of Madrid and member of the CSIC Nanomedicine Hub, is devoted to search for new perspectives on the synthesis, structure and function of materials. Its main research topics focus on: (1) The preparation of nanomaterials, primarily nanoparticles, (2) The modification of nanomaterials by doping or coating, (3) The preparation of colloidal suspensions, (4) Their characterization and (5) Application of nanomaterials. All topics are closely connected to provide new insights into the properties of nanomaterials and their application in fields such as bioimaging, nanomedicine, catalysis, magnetic devices and sensors.

Webinar Recording

On the 29th of April 2024, MDPI and the journal Nanomaterials (ISSN: 2079-4991) organized a webinar on Magnetic Nanoparticles for Biomedical and Environmental Applications. This webinar focused on the potential of magnetic nanoparticles from an applications perspective. Diverse types of functionalized magnetic nanoparticles were discussed, and also hierarchical structures formed from them.

The webinar featured two distinguished speakers with extensive expertise in the field. Prof. Isabel Izquierdo Barba talked about the ways to fabricate and employ nanomaterials to treat bone disorders. Dr. Alvaro Gallo-Cordova presented the research developed at MAMBIO Group, headed by Prof. María del Puerto Morales, delving into the key parameters of microwave-assisted polyol synthesis of iron oxide nanoparticles and their application for environmental remediation, particularly in the magnetic induction heating-assisted degradation of organic pollutants.

The webinar was hosted via Zoom and required registration to attend. The full recording can be found below. In order to learn about future webinars, you can sign up to our newsletter by clicking “Subscribe” at the top of the page.
