Eduardo Fernandez-Megia, Associate Professor at the University of Santiago de Compostela and Researcher at Center for Research in Biological Chemistry and Molecular Materials (CiQUS) will present the seminar “Dendritic nanostructures for biomedical applications” next Friday May20th 2022.
Eduardo Fernandez-Megia completed his PhD in Chemistry under the supervision of Prof. F. J. Sardina at the University of Santiago de Compostela (USC). After a postdoctoral stay with Prof. Steven V. Ley at the University of Cambridge (1997-99), he returned to USC as a Marie Curie Fellow. In 2003, he became Ramon y Cajal Fellow, and then was appointed Associate Professor of Organic Chemistry (2010). He is a Full Professor since 2021. From 2011, he works at the Center for Research in Biological Chemistry and Molecular Materials (CIQUS).
Fernandez-Megia lab focuses on the interface between chemical biology and polymer chemistry with emphasis on well-defined dendrimers and polymeric nanostructures for biomedical applications, drug delivery and diagnosis. The laboratory activity includes polymer synthesis, the preparation and characterization of nanoassembles, and their in vitro/in vivo evaluation. Special interest is devoted to click & accelerated bioconjugation protocols for stimuli-responsive materials, the synthesis of dendrimers, and the multivalent functionalization of ligands and proteins to modulate the complex mechanisms governing multivalent interactions.
