Congratulations Dr Laura Rodriguez!
The past 22 October, our PhD candidate Laura Rodriguez successfully defended her PhD thesis titled “Synthesis and Characterization of Curcuminoids and their derived polymeric systems” supervised by Nuria Aliaga from the Funnanosurf and Concepción Dominguez Pascual from the Supercritical fluids and functional materials group. She brilliantly presented the work, and after a depth and inspiring question session animated by the PhD commitee formed by Maria Rosa Aguilar de Armas from the Instituto de Ciencia y Tecnología de Polímeros (ICTP-CSIC), Mónica Giménez Marqués from the Instituto de Ciencia Molecular (ICMol) and Silvia Gómez Coca from the Instituto de Química Teórica y Computacional (IQTC), she became a new doctor of our group and a new Icmab graduate. It was indeed among the first thesis defended in a hybrid format allowing both live and online participation after the pandemic. Congratulations Dr Laura Rodriguez and all our best wishes for your future, we will miss you!
