Interview with Dr José Rodrigo Magaña and Dr Cristina Fornaguera

10/06/2022
"My contribution to the ANTIEMT project is designing genetic material transporters. They are invisible polymers for most of the body's cells, except for tumor cells, to which they are targeted as ‘ninjas.’"

Confocal Microscopy

05/02/2021
IQS has a Leica SP8 Confocal Scanning Microscope used for any application that involves the analysis of images that emit fluorescence, on their own or if they have been previously labeled with fluorophores, that allows the analysis of materials and biomaterials in addition to the analysis of biological tissues and cell culture.

Dr Borrós and Dr Fornaguera, leaders of the CoviNanoVax project

08/01/2021
“We have our mRNA encapsulated, which appears from the outset that it will be immunogenic, stable and non-toxic, with stable nanoparticles at 4ºC, and obtained through an easily scalable process.“
