Iria Louzao

Daniel Crisan

We thank the great contributions of all past and present members who came to work with us in Santiago from different places.

All the best to all of you!

Ph.D. Juan Ph.D. was focused in peptide synthesis for self-assembled cyclic peptides, membrane transporters, pattern recognition sensing systems and polymers for nucleotide delivery. When not in the lab Juan enjoys watching sports and supporting Real Madrid and Celta de Vigo.

Juan Priegue

Visiting Prof. Prof. Kim. holds a M.S. from Seoul National University (Prof. Deukjoon Kim) and a Ph.D. (Prof. Jeffrey D. Winkler)  from the University of Pennsylvania. Since 2008 he is Full Prof. at the College of Pharmacy at Seoul National University. His research interest are focused in the synthesis and application  of synthetic methodology for pharmacology active molecules.  email: pennkim@snu.ac.kr

Sanghee Kim

Postdoctoral associate (2015-2017). Iria obtained her Ph.D. from the USC working in NMR and helical polyacetylenes. She then moved to Netherlands and UK to work in polymersomes nanoreactors. Iria spent two wonderful years with us working in novel oligomers for cell penetration self-assembly. In January 2018 she moved to work for Inditex. Iria loves hiking and going to the movies (especially alternative cinema). email: iriamaria.louzao@usc.es

Master student.  Leti has carried out her Master Thesis working in the preparation of artificial minimal cells and supramolecular polymers. She will now work to become a member of the scientific police.

Leticia Suárez

Predoctoral Stay. Daniel spent 2 months with us with a Royal Society fellowship for to carry out a predoctoral stay about dynamic polymers and nucleotide delivery.  He completed his Ph.D. in the group of our colleague Dr. Francisco Fernández Trillo in Birmingham University. He moved for a postdoc with Prof. Dr. David Fulton group at Newcastle University.

Immacolata Bruno

International Master Thesis. Imma performed part of her master thesis within the group of Prof. Granja. She worked in dynamic nanotubes for controlled deposition and alignment of macromolecules. She now works in the chemical industry in Italy.  iimmacolata.bruno@yahoo.it

Alexis Wolfwel

International Master Thesis. Alexis carried out his Master Thesis within the group of Prof. Granja and we worked together in peptide nanotubes for glycan alignment and protein controlled deposition. He then moved back to Argentina to start his Ph.D. in polymers with potential industrial applications.


Postdoctoral associate (2016-2019). Jose received a PhD at University of Seville-CSIC in 2008 (Prof. Javier Rojo). He performed post-doc in the University  of Milan as a Curie fellow (Prof. Bernardi, 2009-2012). In 2013, he joined the Glycosystems Laboratory at Seville as a JAE-Doc researcher. In November 2019 he moved to University of Málaga. His research interest is focused in the synthesis of multivalent  carbohydrates mimics for application in pathogen infection and immunity.  email: josejuan.reina@usc.es
