Personal profile

Personal Statement

Jesús Mosquera received his PhD (2014) from the University of Santiago de Compostela, under the direction of Prof. José L. Mascareñas, working in the field of Chemical Biology. With the aim of gaining the broadest possible technical and theoretical knowledge, he carried out three postdoctoral stays each of 2-yeas duration: (i) metal–organic containers ( University of Cambridge, Prof. Jonathan Nitshcke), (ii) plasmonic nanoparticles (CIC Biomagune, Prof. Luis Liz Marzán), and (iii) supramolecular polymers (Eindhoven University of Technology, Prof. Bert Meijer). Since 2020, he is a Strathclyde Chancellor's Fellow.

Research Interests

Live properties emerge from connections between multiple chemical subsystems, each consisting of structurally complex biomolecules that interact in a very precise way. Thus, highly specific molecular recognition plays a central role on the biochemical basis of life and is also a critical point to regulate and study biological systems. 

My research objective is to design artificial molecular containers that can mimic the recognition properties of complex biomolecules, and therefore, they can be applied as analytical and therapeutic tools.
