Primer «Research Bites» en Brisbane

(Post sólo disponible en inglés)

SRAP-Brisbane’s inaugural Research Bites last 11th December 2019 was a great success. Five SRAP-IEAP members gave extremely interesting presentations about the research they are currently undertaking:

  • Raquel Sánchez Díaz spoke about the use of biomaterials towards improved integration of percutaneous devices
  • Natividad Gómez Cerezo explained who she uses mesoporous bioactive glasses for the regenerative treatment of bone pathologies
  • Álvaro Sánchez Herrero has just finished his thesis on tissue engineering of a humanised mouse model for preclinical multiple myeloma research. Álvaro will be doing his defence next week so good luck, Álvaro!
  • Lucía Colondro Conde has been studying what everyone calls ‘morning sickness’ during pregnancy and potential linkages with depression
  • Manuel Serrano Santos has been working on swallowing difficulties in kids and elderly, in particular the inability of swallowing tablets.

SRAP’s vice-president, Ana Rubio, attended the event to explain the objectives and opportunities that SRAP-IEAP can offer to members. The group ended celebrating the start of an exciting collaboration having a few drinks and eating ‘buñuelos’

This event was funded by SRAP-IEAP and the Embassy of Spain in Australia. Thanks to all who presented and attended event.
