About the Author
Daniela Gamenara, PhD, is Assistant Professor in the Organic Chemistry Department of the Faculty of Chemistry of Universidad de la República, Uruguay. After two short postdoctoral internships, her current scientific interest is the development of enzymatic methodologies for the synthesis of high added-value compounds and natural products as well, together with the use of new trends in organocatalysis for the same purposes.
Gustavo A. Seoane, PhD, is Full Professor and Head of the Organic Chemistry Department of the Faculty of Chemistry of Universidad de la República, Uruguay. His main scientific interest is the use of green procedures for the synthesis of bioactive natural products and analogs, in particular, intensive use of biotransformations to prepare polyoxygenated targets. He works actively to promote the development of biocatalysis in South America.
Patricia Saenz-Méndez, PhD, is Assistant Professor of Physical Organic Chemistry in the Faculty of Chemistry of Universidad de la República, Uruguay. She was previously appointed as postdoctoral fellow at the Örebro University, Sweden, and the National University of Ireland, Galway. Her work is devoted to the experimental and in silico development of biotechnological and organocatalytic tools for the preparation of high added-value chemicals and natural products.
Pablo Domínguez de María, PhD, is Group Leader at the Institute for Technical and Macromolecular Chemistry (ITMC), RWTH Aachen University, Germany. He was previously affiliated with AkzoNobel BV in the Netherlands and Degussa AG in Germany. Dr. Domínguez de María has also worked as a technical freelance advisor on emerging technologies (e.g., catalysis) applied to sustainable chemistry (www.sustainablemomentum.net). He was awarded the Young Scientist Prize by the Iberoamerican Academy of Pharmacy.
