Postdoctoral Researcher

Job description

Postdoctoral researcher in the Tumor Biology Research Group

I have dedicated my career to cancer research, with a multidisciplinary focus combining knowledge in tumour biology and the use of nanomaterials to improve drug delivery across the organism.
At this moment, my primary goal is to develop new therapeutic strategies to treat glioblastomas. Our research team is testing new drug administration approaches in orthotopic animal models. It includes testing new antineoplastic agents, innovative injection procedures, drug encapsulation, and the conditioning of neoplastic cells for treatment.

Work areas


Research interests

Throughout my career, I have always considered the importance of interdisciplinarity in scientific development. For this reason, I have acquired extensive experience in Cancer research, focusing on developing novel therapeutic strategies by applying different fields of knowledge, such as nanomaterials, molecular biology and cellular biology.

I have worked in developing nanocarrier systems for drug delivery, targetting cancer stem cells and characterization of multi-inhibitor antineoplastic agents.

In addition, I want university teaching to be a central pillar of my career, so I am giving my first steps in this field.
