Carolina Casagualda Clapés

PhD Student

I earned my Chemistry Bachelor’s degree in 2015 at Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. After doing a master specialized in Chemical Research, I started my PhD studies in Chemistry in 2016. Currently, I am an organic chemist and I am finishing my Doctoral Thesis focused on the development of bioinspired functional materials based on catechol compounds. We have synthesised a new family of catechol derivatives for multifunctional coatings and for developing novel nanocarriers capable of crossing the blood-brain barrier in order to treat Parkinson’s disease.
