M. Teresa González got her Bachelor Degree (1996) and her PhD in Physics (2003) at the Universidad de Santiago de Compostela in Spain. Her PhD thesis obtained the Outstanding Doctorate Award. She is an expert in electrical transport properties of matter. She has worked in different fields including superconductivity, during is PhD research, and molecular electronics, that she started during her postdoctoral stay at Universität Basel in Christian Schönenberger’s group (2004-2008). Since 2016, she is also working in the development of new nanostructured electrodes to interact with the nervous tissue and study the neural activity. She joined IMDEA-Nanociencia in 2008 as Ramón y Cajal researcher. She is in charge of the IMDEA Molecular Electronics Laboratory and the IMDEA Neural Interfaces Laboratory.

Nicolás Agraït has been full professor in Physics at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM) since 2006 and associated senior researcher of IMDEA since 2008. He has developed state-of-the-art scanning probe techniques for studying transport in the nanoscale and performed pioneering studies of transport in nanocontacts, atomic contacts, freely-suspended atomic wires and single-molecule junctions, including mechanical properties, electron-phonon interaction, and thermopower, using scanning probe techniques. He has over 90 refereed publications with over 5800 citations; his h-index is 29 (ISI WoS).
