Alberto Martín-Molina (Granada, Spain 1974) is Associated Professor at the Applied Physics Department, University of Granada (UGR) and he is a research member of the Institute Carlos I for Theoretical and Computational Physics (iC1). He has published 70 peer-reviewed international publications (80% in Q1) and 4 international peer-reviewed book chapters, having h-index=30. His main line of work is one that began with his PhD (special award doctorate from the University of Granada, Spain, 2003) where he studied the role of ionic correlations in charged colloidal systems. His current research work consists in the application of his theoretical, experimental and computational experience to biocolloidal system in Biomedicine. Following his postdoctoral stay (2003-2005) at the “Laboratorie de Physique Statistique de l’Ecole Normale” of Paris (France), where he joined EU-FP5 project “Nanocapsules with Functionalized Surfaces and Walls” (HPRN-CT-2000-00159), he built a new research line around biophysics of lipid complexes at the UGR. He has participated in 16 research projects including 4 transfer of knowledge actions. He has collaborated with scientists from more than a dozen of international research centres as well as with numerous Spanish centres. He has supervised 3 PhD students (international awarded) and has been principal investigator of the following projects:
1. “Physicochemical properties of DNA-lipid complexes with biotechnology applications” (P09-FQM-4698). Junta de Andalucía (2010-2014)
2. “Surface biophysics of phosphatidic acid lipids” (BS28-2015). CEIBioTIC-UGR (2015).
3. “Interactions and collective properties of nanogel/microgel-based soft-matter systems of nanotechnological interest” (FIS2016-80087-C2-1-P). Ministerio de Economía y Competitividad (2017-2019).
