Alexander von Humboldt Postdoctoral Fellow
Development of Thermoresponsive Dendritic Nanocomposites
Dr. María Alejandra Molina received her BS (Hons) in Chemistry from the National University of Rio Cuarto (Argentina) in 2007. In 2007 she obtained a CONICET Fellowship to undertake her PhD studies (2011) in the group of Prof. Cesar Barbero (National University of Rio Cuarto) working on the preparation of smart hydrogels as drug delivery systems. In 2012 she started her postdoctoral research at Freie Universität Berlin, under the supervision of Prof. M. Calderón and Prof. R. Haag. Her current research is focused on the preparation of responsive nanogels for anticancer therapy within the the frame of the NanoMatFutur project entitled Themornanogele. In 2013 she was awarded an Alexander von Humboldt postdoctoral fellowship from the Georg Forster Programm.
