During the 15-16th of July 2019, Fabien Gosselet from the blood-brain barrier laboratory of Artois University, welcomed the rest of the MAGBBRIS project members in the beautiful Jean Perrin faculty in Lens, France.
This one year meeting allowed us to update each other about our ongoing work and gave us the necessary opportunity to discuss our latest results and how to face the upcoming challenges....
During late May 2019, Euronanomed hosted in Bratislava a Review Seminar for projects funded in the 2015, 2016 and 2017 joint Calls. Of course, MAGBBRIS project had it's representation on it: consortium coordinator Anna Rosell presented the top achievements during the first year of our ongoing work with endothelial progenitor cell secretome encapsulation and tracking.
Alba Grayston, PhD. student at the Vall d'Hebron Research Institute Neurovascular Research group, has presented a poster at the European Stroke Organisation Conference (ESOC).
The poster was entitled "Intraarterial administration of therapeutic Endothelial Progenitor Cell secretome in biocompatible magnetized nanocapsules for sustained release in a mouse model of transient cer...
Anna Roig was invited as Visiting Professor at the Biomedical Engineering Department of Jinan University (Guangzhou, China). She was hosted by Dr. Siming Yu, who did his PhD at the ICMAB in the Nanoparticles and Nanocomposites group. During this trip, she also visited Tianjin University hosted by Dr. Pengfei Niu also a former PhD at the NN group.
The Neurovascular Research Laboratory (VHIR) has published a new article in collaboration with researchers of the Neuroprotection Research laboratory at Massachusetts General Hospital showing how Endothelial Progenitor Cells (EPCs) might participate in rescue from oxygen‐glucose deprivation by transferring mitochondria particles to damaged brain endothelial cells.
Anna Roig, from the Institute of Materials Science of Barcelona has presented our MAGBBRIS project in the 12th International Conference and Workshop on Biological Barriers. The first results on magnetic PLGA nanocapsule synthesis and EPC secretome production and encapsulation were displayed in a poster in Saarbrücken (Germany) on the 27 – 29 of August 2018.
