Short Biography

Àlvar Martínez-Camarena received his BSc in Chemistry (1st Hons, Extraordinary Award to the best graded) from the University of València (Spain) in 2014. The same year he joined Prof. Dr. Enrique Garcia-España’s group at the Institute of Molecular Science (ICMol) and received his Master’s Degree in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology in 2016.

Since 2015 he is performing his PhD focused on the synthesis of new aza-macrocycles with antioxidant activity for biomedical applications. During the realization of his PhD, he started working with Dr. Roberto Tejero in the modelling of biological systems by Molecular Dynamics, as well as by Quantum Mechanics.

    BSc Chemistry

    Àlvar Martínez-Camarena received his BSc in Chemistry (1st Hons, Extraordinary Award to the best graded) from the University of València (Spain). In September he joined Prof. Dr. Enrique Garcia-España’s group at the Institute of Molecular Science (ICMol).

  • September, 2015

    Starting of PhD

    Since 2015 he is performing his PhD focused on the synthesis of new aza-macrocycles with antioxidant activity for biomedical applications. With this purpose he is developing new polyaminic receptors, capable to be supported in boehmite nanoparticles, as mimetics of SOD enzyme. This work is embedded in the area of Supramolecular Chemistry.

    Master's degree in Nanoscience

    In 2016 he received his Master’s Degree in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology in 2016 with the thesis named "Aza-macrocyclic ligand complexes as mimetics of enzymes with antioxidant activity".

  • June-August, 2017

    Research stay in the University of Vienna

    During the realization of his PhD, he started working with Dr. Roberto Tejero in the modelling of biological systems by Molecular Dynamics, as well as by Quantum Mechanics. In this context, Àlvar spent three months in 2017 working in the University of Vienna with Prof. Dr. Leticia González in the modelling of the catalytic cycle of superoxide radicals dismutation carried out by copper complexes.

  • September-October, 2018

    Research stay in the University of Florence

    During the realization of his PhD, he started working with Dr. Roberto Tejero in the modelling of biological systems by Molecular Dynamics, as well as by Quantum Mechanics. In this context, Àlvar spent three months in 2017 working in the University of Vienna with Prof. Dr. Leticia González in the modelling of the catalytic cycle of superoxide radicals dismutation carried out by copper complexes.
