Research Professor Samuel Sánchez presented last March 3rd in Brussels the new generation of NanoBots and BioBots developed in his research group at Institute of Bioengineering of Catalonia (IBEC) in Barcelona.
The presentation took place during the European Research Council (ERC) Seminars. The audience was composed of scientific personnel of ERC, as well as a general audience from the European Commission.
With the title “Nanobots to 3D BioBots as future tools in robotics and medicine” Professor Sánchez presented during his seminar, fundamental aspects of catalytically powered nanoparticles -also called nanobots-, their applications in environmental remediation and also in future smart nanomedicine.
He also introduced the new research lines at IBEC on 3D Bioprinted Soft Robotics.
Samuel Sánchez leads the Smart Nano-Bio-Devices Group at IBEC, member of the Barcelona Institute for Science and Technology (BIST), and he is Research Professor of the Catalan Institute for Research and Advanced Studies (ICREA) in Barcelona. He is also one of the seven ERC Grantees that currently work at IBEC, an institute focused on bioengineering and biomedicine.
