Andrés de la Escosura studied at Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM), working within the group of Tomás Torres for his PhD, which was awarded in 2005. In 2006, he joined the group of Roeland J. M. Nolte and Jeroen J. L. M. Cornelissen, at the Radboud University Nijmegen, where he held a Marie Curie Intra-European fellowship. In 2009, Dr. de la Escosura moved back to UAM, first as Assistant Professor and, since February 2012, with a Ramón y Cajal position. His main research interests are at the interface of chemistry and biology, searching for nanotechnology and biomedical applications of protein cages. Currently, he is also exploring the fields of systems chemistry and the origins of life.
