Maria Godoy and Jordi Guillem, Ramón y Cajal Fellows at BBT

Dr. María Godoy-Gallardo and Dr. Jordi-Guillem Martí, both members of the Biomaterials, Biomechanics and Tissue Engineering Research Group, obtained two Ramón y Cajal Fellowships from Agencia Estatal de Investigación (AEI) to consolidate their research careers at the UPC.

Dr. María Godoy-Gallardo (Granollers, 1983) and Dr. Jordi Guillem-Martí (Linyola, 1981) have obtained two Ramón y Cajal Fellowships in the 2023 Call of Agencia Estatal de Investigación (AEI).

Dr. Godoy-Gallardo graduated in Chemistry from the University of Barcelona (UB) in 2008 and in Materials Engineering from the UB/UPC in 2009. She completed her Master's in Biomedical Engineering at UPC (2011) and received her PhD from BBT (UPC) in 2015 through her work on the development of various antibacterial coatings for dental implants to prevent peri-implantitis. Then, she moved to the Technical University of Denmark (DTU), where she obtained a DFF Mobilex COFUND Fellowship . Later, she returned to Spain with a Beca Beatriu de Pinòs associated with the International University of Catalonia (UIC). Currently, she is a senior postdoctoral researcher at the BBT, within the ERC Advanced Grant BAMBBI, led by Prof. Maria-Pau Ginebra.

Dr. Guillem-Martí studied Biochemistry (2005) and Biology (2011) at UB. He completed his doctoral thesis at the Biomedical Research Unit, at Vall d'Hebron Research Institute (2006-2010), based on the knowledge of the process of initiation and formation of the abdominal incisional hernia through the identification of cell alterations cellular and molecular that affect the tissues that make up the abdominal wall, as well as the knowledge of the cellular response to treatment using biomaterials to identify the routes involved in biointegration. After completing his doctorate, he joined the rBiomaterials, Biomechanics and Tissue Engineering Research Group (BBT, 2010) as a Postdoctoral Researcher. In recent years, he has obtained a Personal Researcher Doctor Junior grant (PDJ2014) from AGAUR (Generalitat de Catalunya) and a Marie Sladowska Curie that allowed him to spend two years at the University of Washington (USA). Currently, he is a María Zambrano (AEI) Fellow at BBT.

Both researchers will join our research group as Ramón y Cajal Fellows in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at UPC.
