María Díaz González
María Díaz González holds a degree in Chemistry from the University of Oviedo since 2000. In 2006 she obtained a PhD title in Chemistry from the same University (with a Cum Laude distinction), for her work in the use of screen-printed carbon electrodes as transducers in biosensors.
After completing her Doctoral Thesis, she undertook a three-year postdoctoral stay (2006-2009) at the Molecular and Industrial Biotechnology Group (GBMI) of the “Universidad Politécnica de Catalunya” (UPC, Barcelona). During her stay, she contributed to the creation of a new line of electrochemistry research, focused on the study of enzymatic systems that were of interest in the textile and paper industry.
In January 2010, she was awarded a “Juan de la Cierva” fellowship to enable her to join the Chemical Transducers Group (GTQ) at the “Instituto de Microelectrónica de Barcelona” (IMB-CNM), belonging to the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC). During her nine-year stay at the CSIC, she specialized in the development of electrochemical analytical microsystems for biomedical applications and environmental monitoring.
In June 2019 she returned to the University of Oviedo and since January 2020 is part of Healthsens S.L.
Throughout her 20 years of experience, she has participated in 15 national and European research projects, has published more than 30 peer-reviewed scientific articles, 2 book-chapters , 2 patents and presented communications in more than 30 national and international conferences. In addition, she has been co-director of 3 MSc and 2 BSc thesis projects, and supervised the work of PhD students and international visitors, among other merits.
