Prof. Susana Marcos awarded Ramon y Cajal Medal by the Royal Academy of Sciences

Medalla Ramon y Cajal

The Royal Academy of Sciences, gathered in extraordinary plenary session on March 27, agreed to award the Ramón y Cajal Medal 2019, which rewards the trajectory of Spanish scientists under 50, to Prof. Susana Marcos. 

The jury of the award pointed that Prof. Marcos “has maintained an outstanding scientific career at an international level, with a fully multidisciplinary research program, using concepts of physics, optics, biology, biomechanics, ophthalmology and neuroscience to understand the basic mechanisms of human vision, develop diagnostic tools in ophthalmology and to invent new optical solutions for the correction of the most common vision problems. His work, highly productive both in the academic field and in technology transfer, has a high impact on basic science, the clinic and the ophthalmic industry”.

New in the Lab: Elena Campillo


We welcome Elena Campillo (BSc in Physics, Universidad Complutense de Madrid) who joined Viobio lab with a Predoctoral Fellowship of YEI Program funded by Comunidad de Madrid. She performed her degree practises at IMDEA Nanoscience working at Hypertermia (cancer research with nanoparticles) continuing her final Bachelor Thesis at Instituto de Magnetismo Aplicado.

Elena holds a MSc in Biomedical Technologies Management and Development from the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid. She did her master thesis at Centro de Investigaciones Energéticas, Medioambientales y Tecnológicas (CIEMAT).

She will work on Perception and Psychophysics using optotunable lenses.
