Welcome Ariana Roldán Carretero at ICMAB!

Hi there! I am Ariana Roldán, a Chemical Engineer who is developing her Master’s thesis at ICMAB. I feel attracted to the world of engineering, more specifically, the one related to chemistry and biology. For this reason, I decided to broaden my knowledge by studying the master's degree in biological and environmental engineering. It brings together some of the fundamentals that I need to achieve my goal, which is being part of a scientific breakthrough. I am delighted to be able to contribute my experience in the field of drug nanoencapsulation being part of Nanoparticles and Nanocomposites group. I am looking forward to learn as much as possible from this opportunity.
