Biography of Andrés de la Escosura

Andrés de la Escosura (PhD 2005) carried out postdoctoral studies at the Radboud University Nijmegen (The Netherlands). He joined Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM) in 2009, where he has held various positions as Assistant Professor, Ramón y Cajal Fellow and, since December 2018, Associate Professor. 

Currently, he belongs to the recently created Institute for Advanced Research in Chemical Sciences (IAdChem) and the Organic Chemistry Department at UAM, where he leads a research group concerned with the study of biohybrid materials and systems chemistry. After finding useful properties of protein capsids as nanoreactors and nanocontainers to incorporate different kinds of materials, he is currently working in areas that include biomedical applications, prebiotic systems chemistry and the origin of life.
