Biography

David graduated in Materials Engineering at the University of Seville, Spain, in 2013. There he cultivated a special interest in magnetic materials and magnetic instrument development while working in Prof Victorino Franco’s group. Later, David moved to Madrid, Spain, to complete his Masters and PhD studies in Condensed Matter Physics, Nanoscience and Biophysics at the Research Institute IMDEA Nanociencia. During this time, David started his transition from the field of material engineering to the multidisciplinary world of nanomedicine working in the group of Prof Francisco Terán. There, he mainly focused in developing advanced tailored instrumentation for characterising exotic properties of magnetic nanoparticles for cancer treatment. In 2018, David moved to Keele University as a Postdoctoral Research Associate joining Dr Alan Harper´s group for the aim of developing a magnetic nanoparticle-based therapy to improve current stroke treatments. Recently, David was awarded a prestigious Sir Henry Wellcome Postdoctoral Fellowship. During the term of this fellowship, David will pursue to develop a novel magnetic nanoparticle-mediated therapy to provide a safer and more effective treatment for Venous Thromboembolism (VTE), a poorly treated disease with high prevalence in the UK, which leads to up to 60,000 deaths a year in the country and many disabilities.


David´s main interests and expertise relies on nanomagnetism, nanoparticles and nanomedicine, and on how the special properties found in the nanoscale can be useful to effectively treat highly prevalent, lethal diseases such as cardiovascular disease and cancer.
