Post-doctoral researcher in Mario Negri Institute for Pharmacological Research, Milan (Italy) in Prof. Luisa De Cola’s research group with a two-years Gemma Hartmann from AIRC-Foundation for cancer research fellowship. . BSc in Biotechnology; MSc in Nanostructured Materials at the University of Zaragoza and PhD in Chemical Engineering by the University of Zaragoza (Spain) holding a prestigious predoctoral FPU fellowship from the Spanish Ministry of Education. She is interested in 1) the combination of molecular biology and biochemistry with physicochemical, microfluidics and nanotechnolgical techniques in the field of extracellular vesicles; and in 2) the development of biomaterials including smart and on-demand breakable organosilica nanoparticles for cancer treatment and diagnosis. She enjoyed international research stays in the ETH of Zurich (Switzerland) and in the Polytechnic University of Milan (Italy). She has published articles in international journals of high impact (Nature Catalysis, Nature Protocols, Nanoscale, J. of Extracellular Vesicles or J. of Nanobiotechnology). She has also multiple communications in international conferences and one award for the article of the year in J. Nanobiotechnology because since its publication, it has been the most accessed and cited. Also, her PhD thesis has been awarded as one of the One of the best 10 PhD theses of 2021 in Experimental and Technological Sciences by the Real Academia de Doctores de España.
