I am laboratory head at the Center for Research in Molecular Medicine and Chronic Diseases (CIMUS), Universidad de Santiago de Compostela.
I obtained my Ph.D. with Prof. Maria Jose Alonso working on new nanoparticles for protein delivery. I was a visiting scholar in Purdue Univ. with Prof. Nicholas Peppas where I worked on smart nanogels for protein delivery. I also was a postdoctoral researcher at ETH Zurich working on advanced silk fibroin composites for tissue engineering.
Our current research aims at design new therapeutic devices based on highly-functional materials, and molecular assembly. The major medical application we are pursuing are devices capable of reprogramming stem cells and cancer stem cells.
