A brief description of our speaker:

Roberto Brea Fernández received his degree and PhD in chemistry from the University of Santiago de Compostela. At this stage of his career he came into contact with nanoscience. 

He spent most of his postdoctoral research at the University of California San Diego (UCSD), where he received a Human Frontier Science Program (HFSP) Cross Disciplinary Fellowship (CDF) in 2014. Following this award, he focused his research on the construction of functional synthetic cells.

In July 2021 he joined CICA as a distinguished researcher of the Xunta, since then, he leads a group focused on the development of chemical strategies to generate self-assembled structures, control the in situ formation of lipids and modulate the modification of proteins in living cells and organisms. He has recently been awarded a Ramón y Cajal grant that will become effective in 2022. 

Roberto's scientific production amounts to 35 publications, 4 book chapters and 7 patents. He has also participated in 32 research projects and is a reviewer and/or editor of several journals, including ACS and Biomolecules of MDPI.
