Data

I obtained my BSc in Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of Granada. In 2008, once I completed my master´s degree in Drug Development, I was awarded a competitive FPU fellowship to conduct my PhD at the Department of Medicinal and Organic Chemistry. In 2014, I started my postdoctoral stage at the University of Edinburgh, where I was based for 5 years. This period was funded by different grants, including an individual MSCA from the European Commission. Recently, I was awarded a MSCA Cofund Athenea3i to work at NanoChemBio group in the development of a nanosystem for combination therapy.

How did you come to science and why are you still here?

I wanted to be a scientist since I was a kid. I feel passionate about both research and teaching. In my opinion, to be a good scientist you have to be able to convey that passion.


A scientific desire

To avoid the unpleasant side effects of conventional chemotherapy with more selective and efficient treatments.
