🔬 Exciting news! ✨ We published our cutting-edge method for precise micropatterning using silver nanorods. By harnessing laser-induced photosculpting and plasmonic interactions, we can create intricate 3D structures known as "Airy castles." 🏰 Discover the potential of these … Leer más acerca de Airy castles in Small Methods
Our recent paper, with Prof. Luis Álvarez de Cienfuegos, about the mechanism of co-assembly in short-peptide hydrogels has been selected as an HOT Article in the journal Polymer Chemistry.

In our last contribution at ACS Sensors, we report an amazing methodology (DYNEX) to determine specific intracellular microenvironments taking advantage of excimer kinetics of acridones. Check it out! … Leer más acerca de Cover in ACS Sensors
Our group has identified and improved by rational mutagenesis the first chloride-sensitive red fluorescent protein (RFP). This protein presents a cis–trans isomerization of the chromophore that produces a dual emission band (green and red) with different chloride sensitivities, which allowed us … Leer más acerca de Characterization of the first chloride-sensitive RFP!
Our recent collaboration with Prof. Alvarez de Cienfuegos, studying the formation of supramolecular peptide hydrogels has been published in Materials Chemistry Frontiers. Using advanced, multiparametric fluorescence microscopy and single-molecule fluorescence spectroscopy, we have studied the … Leer más acerca de see hydrogel fibrils grow!
