Belén Albela obtained her PhD in Inorganic Chemistry in 1996 at the University of Barcelona (Spain) under the supervision of Pr. M. Corbella and Pr. J. Ribas and in collaboration with Pr. G. Christou (Indiana University, USA). After two postdoctoral stays at Max-Plack Institut für Strahlenchimie in Mülheim an der Rhur (Germany) with Pr. K. Wieghardt and at the Institut of Molecular Chemistry and Materials in Paris (France) with Pr. J.-J. Gired on bioinorganic chemistry she joined the Ecole Normale Supérieure in Lyon (France) as Associate Professor in 2000. Her research interest is the design of bioinspired porous materials for catalysis, depollution and nanomedicine.






Daniela A. Wilson  Daniela Wilson (1978, Comanesti, Romania) received her BSc in Chemistry and Physics in 2001, and her MSc in Environmental Chemistry in 2003 from Al. I. Cuza University of Iasi (Romania). In 2007 she obtained her PhD summa cum laude from the Gheorghe Asachi Technical University of Iasi on research into the relationship between structure and properties in mesogenic systems (liquid crystals).

As an Exchange PhD student, she stayed at the Himeji Institute of Technology, Japan, (2003-2004), as EU Marie Curie Fellow (2004-2005) and as a guest researcher (2006-2007) at the University of Hull, UK. She worked as postdoctoral researcher at the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, USA (2007 - 2010) and in 2010 she became a researcher at the Radboud University Institute for Molecules and Materials. She is a visiting lecturer (honorary position) at the Gheorghe Asachi University of Iasi. 

Daniela Wilson received a large number of scholarships and honors, such as the Nano-Micro Letters Researcher Award 2016 for research excellence in the field of nano- and micro- science, Aspasia 2016 by NWO, Nanoscience Award 2015, the Athena Prize of NWO (2015) for Excellence Female Chemists, an ERC Starting Grant for her self-assembly nanorakets research (2012) and a Vidi grant from NWO in 2015 for translating the nanomotor research into the clinic; the use of locomotive self-assembled carriers for targeted drug delivery and diagnostics.



Jose M. Costa-Fernandez is a Full Professor of Analytical Chemistry at the Department of Physical and Analytical Chemistry in Oviedo University (Spain) and coordinator of the Analytical and Bioanalytical Research Group. After completing the PhD in Analytical Chemistry in December 1998, during the period 1999-2000 was a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Chemistry of the University of Indiana (USA). After the return to the University of Oviedo, the research that has been developing more recently is focused mainly in two topics: 1. Development of photoluminescent (bio)sensors based on nanomaterials. 2.- Use of elemental mass spectrometry for the characterization and detection of inorganic nanoparticles in Bioanalytical applications. To date, has supervised 12 doctoral thesis (already defended) and is supervising another 4 Ph.D. thesis (in progress). Author of more than 125 scientific publications in refereed (JCR) journals (mainly in the field of Analytical Chemistry, but also in the field of Multidisciplinary Chemistry) plus 15 book chapters and 2 patents related to the development of scientific instrumentation. About 85 % of the publications are indexed by JRC in the highest Quartile, Q1 (among the top 25% of the Impact Factor distribution) in the corresponding JCR category. Served as Invited Editor of several special issues of Scientific Journals. In recent years, he has personally presented more than 20 invited talks in international scientific conferences. Management experience includes: vice-Dean of chemistry in the Faculty of chemistry of the University of Oviedo from October 2008 until October 2016, Coordinator of the Master in analytical and bioanalytical sciences of the University of Oviedo from February 2017 and continues, Vice-president of the Spanish Society for Applied Spectroscopy during the last 7 yeares, Member of the Government board of the Spanish Royal Society of Chemistry from January 2018 and serves in the Editorial Board of Spectrochimica Acta part B (Elsevier).
