B-MRS News

– B-MRS annual event. Due to the uncertainties related to COVID-19, and to prevent putting our community’s health at risk, the Organizing Committee of the event, the Executive Board of B-MRS and IUMRS have decided to postpone the event “XIX B-MRS Meeting + IUMRS ICEM.” More information is at the event’s website: https://www.sbpmat.org.br/19encontro/.

Featured Paper

A Brazilian scientific team developed a molecular machine that stores drugs in internal nanochannels, transports them in a physiological medium and releases them by opening a nanocap only when the acidity of the medium increases, which usually occurs around cancer cells. In in vitro studies, the nanomachine was more effective than the pure drug in eliminating cancer cells. The work was recently reported in the Journal of Materials Chemistry B. Know more.

XIX B-MRS Meeting + IUMRS ICEM
(Foz do Iguaçu, Brazil,
August 29 – September 2, 2021)

The event is postponed owing to Covid-19.

New date: August 29 to September 2, 2021.

Same venue: Rafain Convention Center – Foz do Iguaçu (Brazil).

Abstract submission: A new schedule will be released.

Event website: www.sbpmat.org.br/19encontro/

Owing to the uncertainties related to the COVID-19, and in order to reduce the risk of hampering the health of our community, the Organizing Committee, the Executive Board of the B-MRS and the IUMRS decided to postpone the 2020 B-MRS and the IUMRS/ICEM meetings.

The conferences are now scheduled to happen from August 29th until September 2nd, 2021, in the city of Iguassu Falls, at the Rafain Convention Center. All participants will be asked to resubmit their abstracts following a new schedule to be released.

Reading Tips

– Researcher at Northeastern University (USA) suggests nanomedicine as an approach for possible treatments of the new coronavirus: nanoparticles the size of the virus that can detect it, adhere to it and make it inactive within the organism. Know more.

– How long does the new coronavirus “live” in different materials? Does the “life” time outside the cells justify its extremely high dissemination? US scientists’ work explained this. Know more.

– Using one of the best supercomputers in the world, scientists are building a model that will show all the atoms in the “shell” of SARS-CoV-2 (the virus causing the Covid-19 pandemic) and the interaction between them. The computational model should help understand in detail how the virus acts in the cells and to develop drugs and vaccines to fight the disease. Know more.

B-MRS listens to the community: suggestions of topics and speakers and call for symposia.

B-MRS has opened a new channel for communication with the scientific community to receive suggestions for the next event, regarding:

  • plenary speakers
  • themes for symposia

The suggestions should be sent by October 15 to the e-mail programa@sbpmat.org.br.

Plenary lectures should address a broad audience (different levels of training and diverse research topics). Plenarists must be outstanding scientists, renowned in the international scientific community, and able to provide a motivational lecture about the progress achieved over time, as well as challenges and perspectives for the future, in a specific research topic.

Thematic symposia are the axis of B-MRS meetings. Scientific contributions, both in oral and poster sessions, are presented by the symposia participants. For the next meeting, the scientific community is invited to to participate  in the choice of thematic symposia that will compose the program in two ways:

  • With previous suggestions: sent by any member of the scientific community to programa@sbpmat.org.br until October 15, 2018.
  • Submission of symposia proposals: submitted through an electronic form by a group of PhD researchers from the scientific community who wish to be symposium organizers, between 1 and 31 October 2018 (please notice the dates, well before the usual period from previous meetings). Go to submission form.
