When you collaborate with individuals who push you to be your best, with no excuses, great things are bound to happen. You are only as extraordinary as the people around you and the desire within.
Aitziber López Cortajarena
Prof. Cortajarena completed her PhD research in Biochemistry at the University of the Basque Country, Spain in 2002. She then held the position of a postdoctoral fellow and, subsequently, associate researcher with Prof. Lynne Regan at the Department of Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry at Yale University until 2010, when she established her own research group at the IMDEA Nanociencia Foundation in Madrid.
During her research carrier, Prof. Cortajarena has implemented the use of repeat proteins for nanotools and materials development, which form the basis for the current research.
