The PhD Thesis Committee was formed by Antonio Villaverde Corrales, Institut de Biotecnologia i de Biomedicina, UAB (President), Aitziber López Cortajarena, CIC biomaGUNE (Secretary) and Dagmar Fischer, Friedrich Schiller Universitäty Jena, Germany (Vocal). Thank you to all three for accepting to evaluate the thesis. 

  • Why did you choose the ICMAB for your PhD?

ICMAB is a great institute in the area of materials science.

  • How would you explain your research to a non-scientific audience? 

My research will contribute to the healthcare of stroke patients in the future.

  • What are the main applications of your research? Could you give us an example?

My research can be applied to nanomedicine, specifically the therapeutic protein delivery for stroke treatment.

  • From the lessons learnt here, which one do you value the most?

I value all the lessons I learnt here, they furthered my understanding of materials science.

  • What will you miss the most from ICMAB?

I will miss my supervisor, Anna Roig, the most.

  • How do you think this experience will contribute to your training and to your future? 

The excellent training experience I had here will gain me a bright future, and support my research in materials science.

  • What are your plans once you finish your PhD?

I will go on my research and dedicate myself to the development of nanomedicine for stroke treatment.

  • What do you wish you had known at the beginning of your PhD, that now you can recommend to the ones who are starting?

I have no regrets during my PhD, the recommendation to the starters is to enjoy the research.

  • Why did you become a scientist? Which have been your role models? 

I enjoy exploring the unknow. My supervisors are my role models.

  • Which is your favourite female scientist? 

My supervisor, Anna Roig, is my favorite female scientist.

  • Describe in 3 keywords… 

        * Your research: Biomaterials, Nanomedicine, Drug delivery
        * Barcelona: Sea, Mountain, Sky
        * Your experience at ICMAB: Excellent, Wonderful, Comfortable

Thank you very much, Yajie! Good luck in your future endeavors!
