Project: Development of termoresponsive gel systems based on peptide amphiphiles

Key Areas of Expertise
  • Synthetic Organic Chemistry
  • Supramolecular Chemistry
  • Nanobiotechnology
  • Self-assembled nanostructures

Carlos received his BSc in Chemistry and his MSc in Supramolecular Chemistry from the University of Costa Rica (Costa Rica). He studied the self-assembly behaviour of bile acid hydrophobic derivatives as molecular gelators under the supervision of Prof. Luciano Galantini in La Sapienza University (Rome) and moved to the Costa Rica National Nanotechnology Laboratory before joining QMUL. He’s currently developing smart multiresponsive peptide amphiphile-based hydrogels for biomedical purposes.
