Blanca Estela Chavez Sandoval

Dra. Blanca Estela Chavez-Sandoval, 42 years old, is a scientist Professor-Researcher working at Universidad AutónomaMetropolitana in Mexico City. She received her Ph.D. degree in Sciences and Environmental Engineering in 2015. During her PhD periodshe has focused her research on the Biosensors to detect pathogen microorganisms in water. After a post-doctoral position at the Laboratory of Gene Therapy (2016-2017) at ENCB-IPN, she developed a technique to biosynthesize nanoparticles from plant extracts and evaluated the efficiency of the AuNPs as therapeutic gene transfer vehicles.

Since November 2002, her research activities are mainly centered on the role of Transposable Elements (ETs) the Mystery of mysteries: how new species are generated?

She is currently the secretary of the Mexican Transdisciplinary Association of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology A.C, which seeks to bring together professionals, students and entrepreneurs from different areas with a focus onnanoscience and nanotechnology worldwide, seeking transdisciplinarity.

Michelle Yepiz Soto

Currently studying Biomedical Engineering in Instituto Politecnico Nacional. Also working in the Health Tech division of Philips as an Ultrasound Sales Intern which involves a constant tracking and visibility of the potential clients seem directly or by a distributor. This includes managing all these opportunities through a tool called SalesForce. And last but not least, I create weekly reports that show the progress of our goal and the actions we need to take in order to reach this goal. Since I started working with Philips I’ve been part of some congresses like FLASOG, the biggest congress of gynecology and obstetrics in Mexico.
