Ana M. Pizarro completed a PhD in Chemistry at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid in 2004 under the supervision of Prof. C. Navarro-Ranninger, working on trans-platinum cytotoxic compounds. She was awarded a Marie Curie Fellowship (EIF) to work in the laboratory of Prof. P. J. Sadler FRS at the University of Edinburgh (UK) on new organometallic ruthenium-based organometallics. She then moved to the University of Warwick (UK) where she focused on how selected metallodrugs (based on ruthenium, osmium and iridium) exert their anticancer effects in tumour cells. In January 2014 she was awarded a Ramón y Cajal Fellowship and joined IMDEA Nanociencia as an Assistant Professor. Her main interest lies in exploiting the extraordinary features of transition metal complexes inside the human cell to modulate its machinery at the molecular level in the nano-space. Additionally, Dr. Pizarro coordinates the Cell Culture Unit and Microbiology at IMDEA Nanociencia.
