Welcome to the Workshop on “Electrical and optical active molecular materials for bio-applications” (ACTIVE2022) organized by the Tuneable and Low Cost Molecular Electronics (RL4) and Bioactive Materials for Therapy and Diagnosis (RL5) research lines from ICMAB, CSIC.
This 2-day workshop (6-7 October 2022) is designed for researchers who are working or are interested in working on molecular materials, which may combine electrical and optical properties for bio-applications. Aspects such as flexible electronics, biorecognition, signal amplification, cell and tissue actuating, surfaces and interfaces or optical imaging will be addressed.
The workshop will include keynote and invited lectures by the following international experts:
- Aránzazu del Campo, INM-Instituto Leibniz of New Materials in Saarbrücken: Light-mediated stimulation materials
- Francesca Santoro, Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia: Electrical active materials for stimulating cells
- Róisín M. Owens, Universtiy of Cambridge: Integration of electroactive materials with biological systems
- Jose Antonio Garrido Ariza, ICREA Research Professor and Group Leader and Vice Director, Advanced Electronic Materials and Devices, Institut Català de Nanociència i Nanotecnologia (ICN2)
- Albert Cortijos Aragonès, Ramon y Cajal, Universitat de Barcelona (UB)
- Gabriel Gomila Lluch, Full Profesor, Group Leader Nanoscale Bioelectrical Characterization, Institut de Bioenginyeria de Catalunya (IBEC)
- Marianna Rossetti, Marie Curie Research Fellow, Institut Català de Nanociència i Nanotecnologia (ICN2)
Moreover, dissemination of results in form of oral (20 min) and flash presentations (10 min) from the participants will be also promoted.
Register before 16 September to present your results and join us at ICMAB. The workshop will be in-person only.
