  • CIC nanoGUNE organizes Nano-Story Contest for the first time

    CIC nanoGUNE is organizing this novel Nano-Story Contest within the framework of the 7th edition of the Festival of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology “10alamenos9”. The contest is aiming to promote across the education community an interest in the nanoscale world, the so-called nano world, which despite its minute size is highly diverse and interesting.

  • CardioPrint, new biofabrication processes for heart implants

    CIC nanoGUNE has recently become one of the organizations that drive the Spanish project CardioPrint, to advance the field of biofabrication by developing a novel device capable of generating bioartificial human tissues with unprecedented precision. Our aims are, in short, to design, produce and test new biofabrication processes for heart implants.


    On April 25, the Electron Microscopy group organized a seminar to present to the Basque community the opportunities that will be derived from the new (Cryo-)FIB equipment that will be installed in nanoGUNE.

  • Oksana Yurkevich, first place winner in SPIE Smart Structures + Nondestructive Evaluation 2022
