  • palomo-claudio

    Palomo, Claudio

    He was born in Barcelona (Spain) in 1951. He studied chemistry at the Instituto Químico de Sarriá (IQS), in Barcelona, where he received his Chemical Engineering Degree in 1975. After two years working in a pharma-industry, he obtained his Degree in Chemistry in 1979 at the University of Barcelona. In the same year he joined the Organic Chemistry Department at the University of the Basque Country with Prof. R. Mestres. In 1983, he took his Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry and after two years of postdoctoral work at the same university, he became associate Professor. In 1989 he was promoted to full Professor in Organic Chemistry and two years later he joined, as visiting professor, the research group of Prof. H. Rapoport at the University of California at Berkeley. Since his reinstatement to the UPV / EHU in 1992 he continued his research area focusing on beta-lactam chemistry and began his studies in the area of asymmetric synthesis that allowed him to establish the research group “Asymmetric Catalysis and Chemical Synthesis” cataloged by the Basque Government as a consolidated and high performance group.

  • liz-marzan-luis-m

    Liz-Marzan, Luis M.

    Born in Lugo (1965), he obtained a PhD in Chemistry at the University of Santiago de Compostela (1992), for his work on the use of microemulsions as a reaction medium for the production of small magnetic particles. He then moved to the Van’t Hoff laboratory at Utrecht University as a postdoctoral associate, where he started a project on the synthesis and optical characterization of noble metallic and bimetallic nanoparticles. The study of plasmonic metal nanoparticles became the central topic of the research carried out by Liz-Marzán when, in 1995, he obtained a faculty position at the Department of Physical Chemistry of the University of Vigo (Full Professor from 2006 to 2012). Liz-Marzán has been Visiting Professor in various universities worldwide and currently holds the position of Scientific Director of the Center for Cooperative Research in Biomaterials, CIC biomaGUNE, in San Sebastian.
