Amyloid fibrils: Not only a marker of disease but also an exciting nanomaterial.
Born in 1974, Pablo Taboada obtained his PhD in Physics at the University of Santiago de Compostela in 1999 where he is nowadays an Associate Professor with Professorship Habilitation at the Condensed Physics Department. He is author of more than 130 papers in reputed international scientific journals, has leaded/participated in more than 30 international and national research projects and is recipient of several grants and awards. His current main research interest are focused on the obtention of hybrid nanoparticles for simultaneous diagnosis and therapy (theranostics), development of hybrid thin film nanostructures for sensing and energy applications, and the analysis of the self-assembly process of (bio)polymers (for example, protein fibrillation) and their prospective applications.
