    • Speaker: Elena Pazos Chantrero (Ramón y Cajal researcher with ERC Starting Grant)
    • Title: “Preparation of biosensors and new materials from peptides”
    • Data: to be confirmed
    • Organized by CICA
    • CICA's Conference Room

    A brief review of our speaker:

    Elena Pazos Chantrero received her degree and PhD in chemistry from the Universidade de Santiago de Compostela, focusing her work on the development of luminescent sensors for proteins involved in cancer.

    In 2012 she joined the Northwestern University as a postdoctoral researcher, where she developed peptide nanofibers with applications in the field of biomedicine. In 2015 she joined the Centre Tecnològic de la Química de Catalunya, where she continued working in the field of nanoscience using metal nanoparticles to develop biosensors.

    Since 2017 she is part of CICA, where she started her career as an independent researcher thanks to the InTalent UDC-Inditex program. Two years later she obtained an ERC-Starting Grant and since May 2021 she is a Ramón y Cajal researcher. Her research focuses on the use of peptides as a basic tool to develop biosensors and to obtain new self-assembled nanostructures.

    Elena's scientific production amounts to 24 publications, one book chapter and 3 patents. She has participated in 21 research projects and agreements, being the principal investigator of 7 of them.
