PAZOS Elena, University da Coruna, Spain

Lanthanide metallopeptide sensors


Elena Pazos received her Ph.D. from the University of Santiago de Compostela, where she worked on luminescent probes of proteins involved in cancer under the supervision of Prof. José L. Mascareñas and Prof. M. Eugenio Vázquez. During her Ph.D. studies, she was a visiting student at Trinity College Dublin and at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. 

In 2012, she joined Prof. Samuel I. Stupp at Northwestern University, where she worked for two years on the development of supramolecular peptide nanostructures for biomedical applications. After her postdoctoral period, she joined Medcom Advance and from December 2015 to June 2017 she worked in the group of Prof. Ramón A. Álvarez-Puebla at the Chemical Technology Center of Catalonia as a Marie Curie researcher, focusing her research on the development of SERS-based probes.

In July 2017, she joined the Department of Chemistry of the Faculty of Science and CICA at the University of A Coruña as a junior group leader. She was awarded an ERC Starting Grant in 2019 and a Ramón y Cajal contract in 2020. At CICA, her group works on the development of luminescent probes and stimuli-responsive systems.
