“Drinks with Science” is an initiative that seeks to bring science closer to bars

This Thursday, February 29, a new course for successful students “Drinks with Science” publishing project. An initiative that aims to satisfy residents' scientific curiosity in a relaxed, fun and enjoyable way during their free time, bringing them closer to pubs. This activity targets all residents who are scientifically curious without needing specific training in science and aims to be a meeting point for science lovers in a way that facilitates the creation of scientific debates between experts and the general population.

The activity is organized by research institutes, ISQCH (Institute of Chemical Synthesis and Homogeneous Catalysis) and But (Institute of Nanoscience and Materials of Aragon) are both joint CSICs and the University of Zaragoza, and will be replicated Periodically on the last Thursday of every month. During these sessions, topics related to chemistry, nanotechnology and materials science will be discussed.

This month, activity joins the celebration International Day of Women and Girls in Science Which aims to highlight the role of female researchers in science and awaken scientific calls from an early age.

The free-access session will be held next February 29 at 8:00 pm at El Sótano MágicoCalle San Pablo 43, Zaragoza (http://elsotanomagico.com/) and will include researchers Raluca Fratella and María Josefa Bernad.

“Mary Anne, the love chemist who revolutionized science” Pilar Lopez Ram de Feo, researcher at Isqch (CSIC-Unizar)

In the eighteenth century, two revolutions began in France that disturbed the world: the French Revolution and the Chemical Revolution. Together with her husband Antoine, Marie-Anne Lavoisier reshaped the field of chemistry, which until then had been dominated by the idea of ​​phlogiston, coming from chemistry. Marie was Antoine's necessary and essential collaborator for this revolution to come to fruition: her role was fundamental in understanding the composition of air and the role of oxygen, in disseminating new ideas among the scientific community of the time and in her legacy. Husband for future generations.

Pilar Lopez Ram de Feo is a Doctor of Chemical Sciences (1991), Full Professor at the Department of Organic Chemistry (2000) and Researcher at ISQCH. Her work as a researcher has focused on: Obtaining compounds with potential biological activity In pure crystalline form, either by selective synthesis or by separation. We are currently working on sourcing value-added glycerin products from biodiesel production. In addition to his work in teaching and research, he has received a Various administrative positions at the universityHe actively participates in various scientific publishing projects.

“Hydra vulgaris for nanomedicine” – researcher Giuseppina Tommasini at INMA

The secret to eternal youth lies in the genome of Hydra vulgaris. In fact, this tiny freshwater polyp is known for its extraordinary ability to regenerate and has been used historically Studies of developmental biology and regenerative medicine. In recent years, Hydra has established itself as an innovative model for studying interactions between novel nanomaterials and biological systems, becoming an ideal organism for developing new applications in nanomedicine and bioelectronics.

Giuseppina holds a degree in Biology from the University of Naples Federico II and a Master's degree in Molecular Biology from the same university. He is currently a doctoral student at the University of Zaragoza and Develops his thesis work in the group Inma BionanoSurf, under the supervision of Dr. Maria Moros. His research focuses on studying interactions between novel nanomaterials, both organic and inorganic, with in vitro (cell lines) and in vivo (H. vulgaris) models for basic research and to develop new biomedical applications.

In addition, there will be during the session A Hi Score Science Personality Quiz Aimed at the general public which will reward the scientific knowledge gained by those who attended the session with a range of craft beers from Gastrópolis.
