Dr. Gemma Vilar is senior researcher in the Human & Environmental Health & Safety in the R&D department of LEITAT Technological Center. She coordinates R&D projects in the nanomedicine and nanobiosensors group, focused on developing both nanoencapsulated systems as organic and inorganic nanoparticles for biomedical applications. She holds two degrees in chemistry (2005) and biochemistry (2011) from the University of Barcelona. She has done two Masters, one of them about organic chemistry (2005, University of Barcelona) and the other one about the development of polymeric nanoparticles (European Mater, 2007, University of Barcelona).
She acquired the Diploma of Advanced Studies (DEA, 2008, University of Barcelona) and completed her studies performing a PhD in nanotechnology (2011, University of Barcelona). She has undertaken several research placements in Valencia, Germany and Canada. She has participated in national and international congresses and is author or coauthor in various prestigious scientific journals.
