Joint CSIC-ALBA Laboratory opens to drive sustainable energy solutions

The ALBA Synchrotron and the Institute of Materials Science of Barcelona (ICMAB-CSIC) have opened a new laboratory addressed to study batteries and high temperature superconductors. The new facility, located at the ALBA Synchrotron premises, enables users of ALBA, including the important community of CSIC researchers, to significantly optimize experiments involving synchrotron light. The project was jointly funded by the CSIC PTI+ TransEner, funded by the European NextGeneration funds and the Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan, and ALBA.

Plasmons to harness typically wasted infrared solar light

The project PLASMIONICO is featured at the Project Repository Journal. PLASMIONICO is a European MSCA project, carried out by ICMAB researchers Alejandro Goñi (PI) and Luis A. Pérez, that aims to advance in the sustainable produciton of electricity by harnessing near infrared (NIR) solar light, which is typically wasted in conventional solar cells.

The NANOMOL group collaborates with the VHIR in the developement of a new nanomedicine for the treatment of a childhood cancer

Within the MOTHER project (Molecule-based materials and supramolecular organizations for therapy, diagnosis and tissue engineering), the NANOMOL group from ICMAB collaborates with the Vall d'Hebron Institute of Research (VHIR), on the developement of a new nanomedicine for the treatment of high risk neuroblastoma, one of the most typical childhood cancers. Now, researchers from VHIR have identified new microRNAs that reduce the progression of this type of cancer.
