Organic Chemistry: Gold based thermoresponsive nanogels
Dr. Julián Bergueiro Álvarez received his BS in Chemistry from the University of Santiago de Compostela (Spain) in 2007. In 2008 he obtained the MS in Organic Chemistry and in 2013 he received his PhD from USC for his work in sterecontrolled synthesis of retinoids employing transition metal catalyzed reactions in the key steps. During the last year of his PhD he joined the group of Prof. R. Riguera and Prof. E. Quiñoá to work on the synthesis and characterization of stimuliresponse helical polymers and poly(phenylacetylene)s@gold nanoparticles nanocomposites. In October 2013, he joined Prof. M. Calderón group to carry out his postdoctoral research at Freie Universität Berlin. His current research is focused on gold based thermoresponsive nanogels as novel drug delivery nanocarriers.
