FunNanoBio (former Colloid Chemistry Group) was founded at Universidade de Vigo in 1995 by Prof. Luis M. Liz-Marzán and Prof. Pablo Hervés Beloso. Prof. Luis M. Liz-Marzán led the group till 2012 when he moved to Basque Country after being appointed Scientific Director at CIC biomaGUNE.
Since then, Assoc. Prof. Isabel Pastoriza-Santos and Jorge Pérez-Juste lead the group. FunNanoBio group research is focused on the design and fabrication of novel nanostructured materials, mainly plasmonic, for a broad range of applications, including environmental sensing, biosensing, catalysis, imaging, or theranostics.
