December 7, 2022. Sara gives a seminar in the nanotechnology and nanoscience introductory course for bachelor students in La Coruña (Spain). This initiative organized by the University of Coruña to introduce first- and second-year students to the nanoscience and nanotechnology. Thanks, Moises Canle, for the invitation.
|October 7, 2022. Project funded!! In the Ecological and digital transition call by Spanish ministry of science. Our project on sustainable H2 production with new 2D bio-hybrid photocatalysts based on Earth abundant and environmentally friendly resources has been founded (172 k Euros).|
September 30, 2022. Sara participates in La Noche de la Investigación outreach event in Madrid (Spain). Great opportunity to show what we do in the lab to the society in the Caixa Forum (Madrid, Spain).
July 21, 2022. New paper out in JACS. Check out action mechanism hydrogenase and polymer dots assembly and its performance for solar driven hydrogen evolution. Full text in the link: https://doi.org/10.1021/jacs.2c03882.
July 17, 2022. Sara presents at IUPAC photochemistry symposium in Amsterdam (The Netherlands). Sara discusses on excited state modulation based on induced protein conformational changes. Great opportunity to meet photochemistry community and share ideas.
|April 1, 2022. Grant awarded! In the Junior Leader incoming call by La Caixa Foundation. Our project in on-demand photochemical energy conversion in bio-hybrids with proteins and nanoclusters in synergy is being funded (300 K Euros). This grant gives the support to explore novel research ideas to develop photosystems that perform efficient light conversion at IMDEA Nanoscience research institute (Madrid, Spain).|
March 1, 2022. Our group is at Madrid es ciencia outreach fair at IFEMA (Madrid, Spain). This is a science fair in Madrid (Spain) where different research institutes, and universities presents scientific approaches. We were presenting how to made a solar cell and time-resolved resolution of waves!
