The Organic Bioelectronics Laboratory at KAUST (Saudi Arabia) are happy to welcome Naroa López, an Early Stage Researcher from POLYMAT (Spain) for a 3-month secondment. She’s making cell culture on the PEDOT-based materials previously developed at POLYMAT in order to determine their cytotoxicity, and the adherence and proliferation of the cells on them. She also […]

Ana Aguzin, an Early Stage Researcher from CONICET (Argentina), is coming to the end of her three month secondment at University of Cambridge (United Kingdom). Ana has been developing 3D printed electrodes for their use as wearable electronics and further investigating the potential applications of the materials previously developed in POLYMAT.

POLYMAT-UPV/EHU are delighted to host Lolita Arévalo, an Early Stage Researcher from UCIMED (Costa Rica). This year Lolita will keep progressing on the research path Erick and Xabier worked in the past. Ongi etorri, Lolita!!!

Nerea Casado, an Experienced Researcher from POLYMAT-UPV/EHU (Spain), is performing an intersectorial one month secondment at Panaxium (France), where she will apply some of the developed IONBIKE iongels in the fabrication of bioelectronic devices. In this picture we can see her together with Isabel de las Aguas, a former Panaxium secondee at POLYMAT.  Bonne chance, […]

Nora Aramburu, an Experienced Researcher from UPV/EHU-POLYMAT (Spain), is carrying out a secondment at Georgia Institute of Technology (US). For the next few months, Nora will investigate the characterization of the phase behaviour and the electric and ionic conductivities of PLA/CNT and PBSA/CNT bionanocomposites, and PLA/PBSA bioblends containing different ionic liquids. Good luck, Nora!

Nearly three years and one pandemic later, Dr. Melissa Moya, an Experienced Researcher from UCIMED,  was back to UPV/EHU-POLYMAT in May. Besides carrying some lab work, Melissa took the opportunity to plan the research lines and activities of upcoming UCIMED secondees at POLYMAT. We hope you enjoyed your stay, Melissa!

As the end of his secondment approaches, IONBIKE secondee Matias Picchio, an experienced researcher from CONICET – Universidad de Santa Fe, was invited to deliver a lecture within the POLYMAT seminar series 2021/2022. The title of Matias´talk was “Natual deep eutectic solvents as emerging low-cost electrolytes for seigning ionic soft materials”. Thanks for sharing your […]

Busy secondment times at UPV/EHU 🙂 Ana Aguzin (pictured left) , an ESR from CONICET-Universidad del Litoral (Argentina) has recently joined the Innovative Polymers Group of David Mecerreyes at POLYMAT (Spain). Her colleague Matias Picchio (pictured right), who is slowly moving towards the end of his secondment, welcomed her at this side of the Atlantic […]

UPV/EHU is delighted to welcome Gonzalo Cagnetta as one of the first IONBIKE secondees of 2022. Gonzalo, an ESR from CONICET-Universidad de Rio Cuarto (Argentina) will be spending 6 months under the supervision of David Mecerreyes at POLYMAT (Spain). His research activity will focus on the synthesis and characterisation of conjugated polymers for application in […]

Almost one year after her arrival in Spain, Antonela Gallastegui (pictured right), an experienced researcher at POLYMAT, travelled back to Argentina recently to carry out a secondment at CONICET-Universidad de Rio Cuarto, where she was once an Early Stage Researcher. Antonela keeps working in the synthesis of iongels based on biocompatible ionic liquids, and during […]
