Carlos F. Marcos holds a Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry from the University of Santiago of Compostela, where he specialized in chemistry of heterocycles and total synthesis of natural products. He completed his training on the chemistry of the organometallic compounds at the University of Milan and at the Imperial College London, where he was awarded with a grant of the Human Capital and Mobility programme of the European Community.
In 1996 he joined the University of Extremadura, where he started a line of research on new sulfur heterocyclic materials, in collaboration with professors Charles Rees (Imperial College) and Tomás Torroba (UEx). From 2002, he leads a research group involved in the development of new synthetic methodologies. Throughout his career, he has supervised many research studies and has more than 50 publications indexed in frontline scientific journals. He has also made several stays as visiting professor in prestigious American and European research centres. From 2016, it holds a position as Full Professor at the University of Extremadura.
In recent years his research has focused in the chemistry of isocyanides, and especially their use to develop new tandem and multi-component processes. These synthetic strategies have proved to be a very advantageous approach to obtain organic materials with new properties, as well as compounds with biomedical interest.

My research focus is in using quantitative methods to precisely understand how soils function and change- spatially, and through time.
I research methods for comprehensive digital soil mapping aiming to characterize soil both in the lateral and vertical dimensions.
I research methods for quantifying (and validating) measures of uncertainty for these comprehensive soil information systems.
I investigate innovative systems for soil measurement, which includes that associated with remote and proximal and soil sensing instrumentation. I have particular interest in infrared and x-ray spectroscopy.
Maria Paula Marques (October 1960, Portugal) received her MSc in Physical-Chemistry (1987), her PhD (1995) and her habillitation (2018) from the University of Coimbra (Portugal). M.P.M. Marques is currently an assistant professor at the Department of Life Sciences of the University of Coimbra, assistant-coordinator of the R&D Group “Molecular Physical-Chemistry” and head of the “Chemoprevention, -Therapy & -Toxicology” laboratory. M.P.M. Marques has authored 140 scientific papers, 8 book chapters and co-edited 3 books. She is a fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry and a member of the Clinical Infrared and Raman Spectroscopy for Medical Diagnosis (CLIRSPEC), the portuguese delegate for the COST Action Raman4Clinics, an associate editor of RSC Advances and a member of the editorial board of Recent Patents on Anti-Cancer Drug Discovery.
Her research is centred on the development of metal-based antitumour agents and on the early diagnostics of cancer, using vibrational spectroscopy, including neutron techniques and synchrotron-based methods.
