Online Lecture by Professor Jose Luis Mascareñas, CICUS-USC, Spain, organized by the Spanisch Chemical Society

José Luis Mascareñas completed his PhD at the University of Santiago in 1988, and carried out postdoctoral studies at Stanford University (1989-1990) and Harvard University (1993 and 1995). He has been visiting professor at the University of Cambridge and the MIT during the summers of 2009 and 2013, respectively. He became full professor at the University of Santiago in 2005, and has been scientific director of CIQUS since 2014. He has published over 200 articles and supervised 37 PhD theses. In 2014 was awarded with an ERC Advanced Grant ( and, more recently, with an ERC Proof of Concept (2020). In 2015 he received the Gold medal of the Spanish Society of Chemistry and in 2016 was appointed as member of the European Academy of Sciences. His current research splits between a synthetic program aimed at discovering novel methods based on metal catalysis, and a chemical biology program focused on the development of synthetic tools for biological intervention.
