Pablo del Pino, Associate Professor at Universidade de Santiago de Compostela and Researcher at Center for Research in Biological Chemistry and Molecular Materials (CiQUS) will present the seminar “Active nanomaterials for live cell applications” next Friday, May 27th 2022 at 12pm.
Pablo Del Pino graduated in Physics from the University of Sevilla (2002), and obtained his PhD (Dr. rer. nat., 2007) from the Technische Universität München (TUM), where he carried out his PhD work in Molecular Biophysics under the guidance of Prof. Fritz G. Parak (†2020). He has held postdoc positions in the group of Prof. Wolfgang J. Parak (Center of Nanoscience at Ludwig-Maximilian Universität LMU München, 2007-2009; AG Biophotonik at Philipp-Universität Marburg, 2012 y 2016) and the group of Prof. Jesús M. de la Fuente (Instituto de Nanociencia de Aragón INA, 2009-2012). After his postdoctoral, he has been ARAID researcher (INA, 2013) and has been in charge (on behalf of Prof. W. J. Parak) of the Bioengineered Particles laboratory (CIC biomaGUNE, 2013-2015). In 2016 he moved to CiQUS as “Ramon y Cajal” researcher (call 2014), where he leads, together with Dr. Beatriz Pelaz, the group BioNanoTools. In 2021, he became Associate Professor of the Department of Particle Physics (USC).
His research is focused on the development of materials for applications in biology and medicine. His group designs, synthesizes and customizes nano- and micro-materials with applications in therapy, imaging and biosensing; and works at the interface of materials science, biology and medicine with the goal of producing next generation “smart” materials, having enhanced multifunctional capabilities.
