Dr. Mari Cruz Cardeñosa Rubio is a PROBIST postdoctoral fellow under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie agreement No. 754510 at the Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (ICN2). She did her undergraduate studies in Biotechnology at the University of Salamanca. After that, she moved to Belgium and France to pursue the Erasmus Mundus Master in Nanosciences and Nanotechnology. Then, she got a fellowship from La Caixa to pursue post-graduate studies in North America. This fellowship allowed her to carry out her Ph.D. in Chemistry at the University of Michigan (US). During this stage, she worked in silicon photonic microring resonators for the detection of noncoding RNAs and polyphosphates in complex matrices. In the NanoB2A, her current work is based on the development of protocols for the multiplex detection of biomarkers in clinical settings using the silicon bimodal waveguides.
