Ana Lopez Hernandez, Postdoctoral Researcher

Ana Lopez received her PhD in “Environmental Chemistry Engineering” at the Industrial Engineering School of the Technical University of Madrid (ETSII-UPM), in the group of Optics, Photonics and Biophotonics at the Center for Biomedical Technology CTB-UPM in Madrid. During her PhD, she worked on the optimization of label-free optical biosensors based on Resonant Nanopillars in the frame of the European project Enviguard (GA 614057). After that, she was involved in the European Project Allerscreening (768641) for the development of a multiplexed biokit for allergens detection. She holds great expertise in biosensor development. She worked with spinners, photolithography equipment’s and different dry (ICP-RIE) and wet etching strategies. She managed characterization equipment such as XPS, SEM, AFM and fluorescence microscopy. Also, she worked on the development of the fluidic set-up for biomolecules detection. As well as different bio-applications (Antigen-antibody), for multiplexed measurement of proteins, toxins, virus, and bacteria. She studied various strategies of chemical treatment for biofunctionalization of diverse substrates including polymer-based and chemical surface modification approaches. Also, she faced matrix effect problems from real samples, and she worked on the development of diverse solutions. She joined Khademhosseini´s lab in October 2019 as a postdoctoral Marie Sklodowska Curie fellow for the development of a multiplexed biosensing and tissue-on-a-chip integrated platform for breast cancer biomarkers monitoring.
