José Rivas started his research activities at Valladolid University (Spain) and Max-Planck-Institute (Stuttgart, Germany), where he focused on the preparation and characterization of magnetic materials, which are basic materials for electric and electronic devices. By joining the University of Santiago de Compostela, Spain as a Full Professor in Physics, he started a new stage related to the synthesis and characterization of nanostructured magnetic materials for biomedical applications, hyperthermia, and biosensors, among others. He is author of several book chapters, 11 and more than 350 scientific articles. He was supervisor of 23doctoral students and became the First Director General of INL – International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory (2008-2014) and was responsible for its implementation.
Yolanda Piñeiro Redondo
Yolanda Piñeiro Redondo started her research activity at the Electromagnetic Signature Laboratory (EMSL) in the Joint Research Centre (Ispra, Italy), where her research activities focused on coaxial cable dielectric spectroscopy techniques. She obtained her Masters in Science in Applied Physics in 1997 at the University of Santiago de Compostela (USC). After a training period at UCM (Spain), she obtained her PhD on Lattice Monte Carlo Simulation of complex systems in 2006 at USC (Spain). Thereafter, her major research involves studies on magnetic hyperthermia with superparamagnetic nanoparticle dispersion in different media (liquid, gel and solid) for biomedical applications.
Zulema Vargas Osorio
Zulema Vargas Osorio obtained her degree in Chemistry in 2009, her Master in Materials Science and Engineering with Honors in 2011 and her Ph.D. with Honors in 2016 by the National Autonomous University of Mexico with the Doctoral dissertation entitled: Synthesis and characterization of SBA-15-type mesoporous ceramics for biomedical applications. She has a wide experience in the design and development of nanomaterials with a strong focus on inorganic research, she is mainly working with nanocomposites based on mesoporous ceramics and magnetic nanoparticles for bone tissue regeneration, bone cancer treatment, contrast agents for MRI, controlled drug delivery systems, among other applications. In 2017, she was granted with the distinction of Level 1 Researcher (SNI1) by the National System of Researchers of the National Council for Science and Technology (CONACyT, Mexico).
Susana Yáñez Vilar
Susana Yáñez Vilar started her research activities at the University of A Coruña, where her research activities focused on dielectric, magnetodielectric and ferroelectric materials. She obtained her PhD in 2010 at UDC (Spain). Thereafter, she works on multiferroic hybrid inorganic-organic compounds at University of Porto. Actually, her major research involves studies synthesis and characterization of nanostructured magnetic materials for biomedical applications.
Manuel Antonio González
Manuel Antonio González completed his Bachelor Degree in Chemistry at the University of Santiago de Compostela (USC) in 2013, after spending one year in the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Porto (FCUP) in 2012. From 2013-2014, he obtained his Master in Research and Development of Drugs in the Faculty of Pharmacy at the University of Santiago de Compostela (USC). He is undertaking his PhD studies in the Nanomedicine Doctorate Programme at the University of Santiago de Compostela (USC), focused in the development of hybrid organic and inorganic multifunctional nanostructures for biomedical applications.
Lisandra de Castro Alves
Lisandra de Castro Alves obtained her degree in chemistry (Faculty of Science of the University of Porto (Portugal), FCUP, 2008-2012) and her master degree in ecotoxicology (University of Koblenz Landau-Landau (Germany), 2014-2017).
