Rodríguez Fernández

Isabel Rodríguez graduated in Pharmacy from the University of Alcala de Henares and received a PhD in Science from the National University of Singapore in 1999. After her PhD, she worked at the Institute of Materials Research and Engineering (IMRE), A*STAR, Singapore. In 2013, she joined IMDEA-Nanoscience as a Senior Research Professor.  She has extensive research experience in the field of micro and nanofabrication technologies applied to polymeric soft materials. Her research primarily focuses on developing functional surfaces often bioinspired, to control interfacial interactions, cell adhesion, wettability, and optical phenomena. Her work finds applications in nano-structured antireflective surfaces, superhydrophobic surfaces, self-cleaning surfaces, and cell instructive topographies with antibacterial properties. Recently, she has also been working on lab-on-chip devices to recreate the tumor microenvironment and study nanomedicines' transport properties.
