Biography
 

I graduated in Chemistry from the University of Valencia in 2006 (Extraordinary end-of-career prize), in Chemical Engineering, Organic chemistry specialty from the École Européenne de Chimie, Polymères et Materiaux de Strasbourg in 2006 (ECPM, France). I obtained my Master's Degree in Supramolecular and Macromolecular Chemistry from the University Louis Pasteur in September 2006 (Strasbourg). I did my PhD in the group of Pr. Leroux (Bayer-CNRS laboratory) and Pr.. Colobert (Syncat) obtaining on 9/10/2009 the European PhD from the University of Strasbourg. Next, I made a postdoctoral stay with Prof. Jerôme Lacour (Geneva, Switzerland) for a year and a half and another with Pr. Hermenegildo Garcia and Pr. Mercedes Álvaro (ITQ-UPV, SPAIN) for one year and 8 months. In 2013, I obtained a position as researcher (Doctor Junior fellow) in the Department of Organic Chemistry of the University of Valencia (UVEG) associated with a CONSOLIDER project (SUPRAMED). In April 2014 he won a position of associate professor 6 + 6. In July 2015 I joined the group of E. Garcia Spain (ICMOL Valencia) as postdoctoral researcher of the ministry (former Juan de la Cierva fellow, 2013 of 2 + 2 years). In November 2017 I joined the CSIC in the group of Dr. Rodrigo as a postdoctoral researcher (I2SysBio, CSIC / UVEG). In November 2018 I won a possition as  Profesor Ajudant Doctor at the Organic Chemistry department from University of Valencia

Biography
 

I completed my chemistry degree from University of Valencia in 1999. Then, I moved to the University of Girona to work on the synthesis (in solution and solid phase) of heterocycle libraries, as a fellow of the agreement between the University and the pharmaceutical company Janssen Cilag S.A., under the supervision of Professor Jose Manuel Villalgordo. In November 2001, I got a fellowship from the Generalitat Valenciana to perform my doctoral thesis at the University Jaume I (UJI) of Castellón, working on asymmetric synthesis of natural products and development of synthetic methodologies (specifically aldol reactions with double asymmetric induction), under the supervision of Professors J. Alberto Marco and Miguel Carda.

After the completion of my PhD I was granted a fellowship of continuity of the University Jaume I, followed by two postdoctoral research contracts in March 2006 and the year 2010, to continue my research in the group of Professors Marco and Carda. Firstly I finished the study about the aldol additions with double asymmetric induction, but later the research was evolving from synthesis of natural products to medicinal chemistry (specifically searching for improved antimitotics).

During this tenure I had a chance to visit several other laboratories for research experience and exchange. In late 2007 I made a postdoctoral stay of 4 months in the group of Professor M.C. Willis at the University of Oxford (in the Chemistry Research Laboratory), working on the development and application of enantioselective Suzuki couplings to the synthesis of natural products. In the years 2012-2013 I made several stays at the Center for Biological Research (CIB-CSIC), in Madrid, with Dr. Fernando Díaz to study interactions with tubulin and cytotoxic activities of synthetic products prepared within the collaboration that was taking place between UJI and CIB.

At the end of 2013 I started a new line of research in supramolecular organic chemistry, focused on the study of peptide derived molecular hydrogels for applications in catalysis, nanotechnology and biomedicine, with Professors J.F. Miravet and B. Escuder. At the beginning of 2014 I got the accreditation to University Associate Professor (Profesor Titular de Universidad) of the national agency of quality and accreditation evaluation (ANECA), but at that time I had difficulties to find a stable position in organic chemistry. For this reason, in September 2016 I moved to the Education Department of the University Jaume I as Assistant Professor (Profesor Ayudante Doctor), to focus on the didactics of experimental sciences.

Fortunately, in September 2019 I got a new position as Assistant Professor (Profesor Ayudante Doctor) in the Department of Organic Chemistry of the University of Valencia (UV), and one year later I promoted to Associate Professor (Profesor Titular de Universidad). Since then, I have been working with Professor C. del Pozo in asymmetric synthesis using tandem processes to obtain compounds of pharmacological interest.

Biography
 

Jorge Escorihuela received his degree in Chemistry in 2003 and his Ph.D. in 2009 (Excellent Cum Laude) from Universitat Jaume I in Castellón. In 2010, he joined the group of Prof. Maquieira at Universitat Politècnica de Valencia for four years as a postdoctoral researcher, where he worked on photoclick chemistry reactions for surface modification and preparation of microarrays of biomolecules. In 2014, he started a two-year postdoctoral stay with Prof. Han Zuilhof at Wageningen University and Research in The Netherlands, working on surface modification and strain-promoted click chemistry reactions. In 2017, he returned to Universitat Politècnica de Valencia at the group pf Prof. Compañ, where we worked on the preparation of novel polymeric membranes for fuel cell applications. In 2019, he was appointed as an Assistant Professor at the Organic Chemistry Department of the University of Valencia.

Biography
 

I graduated in BSc in Chemistry (2010) and in MSc in Org. Chemistry (2012), both from UV and obtaining Extraordinary Awards. During my BSc, I carried out a 9-months stay in the laboratory of Prof. D. Craig at Imperial College (UK).

In 2011, I was awarded an “Atracció de Talent” grant for my PhD, which I conducted at UV (Prof. J. R. Pedro / I. Fernández) working on enantioselective methods for the addition of hydroxyarenes using bifunctional organocatalysis. My PhD was awarded the Extraordinary Award, and I was finalist in the Lilly Awards. During this period, I conducted a 6-months stay in the group of Prof. G. Fu, at Caltech (2013, USA).

After the PhD, I moved to Stockholm University (April 2016), where I worked under the supervision of Dr. A. Mendoza on kinetic analysis, [3+2] cycloadditions and redox-active diazo compounds. During this period, I was awarded a Wenner-Gren Foundation grant, and a Generalitat-Valenciana Fellowship, which allowed me to go back to UV for a few months, conducting research, mentoring and teaching activities.

In October 2019, I joined the Prof. A. Echavarren group at ICIQ first as a postdoctoral researcher and then as JdlC-Incorporación (2020). I worked on the preparation of chiral ligands for enantioselective gold-catalysis, C-H activation and the generation of carbenes by retro-Buchner reactions. I also investigated on the design and synthesis of gold complexes for targeted intracellular applications, in collaboration with José Alberto López, from Prof. M. Serrano Group at IRB Barcelona. Our project was awarded by the “Ignite Program” by the BIST.

After a brief period (March-October 2022) as Assistant Professor at the Inorganic and Organic Chemistry Department at Universidad de Alcalá, I finally came back to UV, where I was appointed Assistant Professor at the Organic Chemistry Department.
