Dr. Milagros Castellanos
Milagros Castellanos studied Biology at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid. In 2011 she obtained her Ph.D. at the Universidad Autonoma de Madrid under the guidance of Prof. Mauricio García Mateu (CBMSO). She worked in the structural, thermal and mechanical properties of viruses and their impact in the viral function and future nanotechnological applications. In 2013 she moved to Prof. Víctor Muñoz’s lab (CNB-IMDEA Nanosciece), where participate as a “Juan de la Cierva” posdoc in several projects individually or in collaboration. Her research mainly focused on biophysical characterization of protein-DNA interactions, protein folding and amyloids’ structural-functional relationship. Currently she joined Dr. Álvaro Somoza’s group (IMDEA Nanoscience) as a Postdoctoral researcher participating in several projects which aims the successful application of cutting-edge nanobiotools for the detection and treatment of several diseases such as cancer.
