Dr. Hélder A. Santos is a physical chemist specialized in electrochemistry, biological mimetic models, and soft interfaces. In 2003, he obtained his MSc in Chemistry from the Department of Chemistry, University of Porto (Portugal). In 2007, he obtained his DSc in Chem. Eng. from the Laboratory of Physical Chemistry and Electrochemistry, Helsinki University of Technology (Finland, now named Aalto University). In 2007, Dr. Santos joined the University of Helsinki, Division of Pharmaceutical Chemistry and Technology, as a Postdoctoral Fellow. In 2009, he was appointed Academy of Finland Postdoctoral Research Fellow. Currently, he is an Associate Professor (tenure-track) in Pharmaceutical Nanotechnology, Principal Investigator/Group Leader, Head of the Division of Pharmaceutical Chemistry and Technology, Head of the Nanomedicine and Biomedical Engineering Group, and Head of the Preclinical Drug Formulation and Analysis Group at the Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Helsinki. He is also the Director of the Doctoral Programme in Drug Research at the Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Helsinki. In 2012, Dr. Santos received the ERC starting grant for 2013-2017 worth of 1.5 M€. Dr. Santos' research is focused on nanobiomaterials, including nanoporous silica/silicon materials and polymeric-based nanoparticles for controlled drug delivery, diagnostics and therapy. The research interests include the development of nanoparticles/nanomedicines for biomedical and healthcare applications. His current work makes the bridge between engineering, pharmaceutical, and medical research. His main research focus is in the use of biodegradable and biocompatible nanoporous silicon nanomaterials, polymers, the application of microfluidics technology for nanoparticle production for simultaneous controlled drug delivery, diagnostic and treatment of cancer, diabetes, and cardiovascular diseases, and further translation of these nanotechnologies into the clinic. He is the author of more than 220 publications (> 5070 citations, h-index = 45) in prestigious high impact, peer-reviewed publications, such as Advanced Materials, ACS Nano, Advanced Functional Materials, Chemistry of Materials, Biomaterials, Small, etc. He is also the author of more than 21 book chapters and more than 200 conference proceedings/abstracts, in a total of more than 366 publications, He has supervised several undergraduate students and more than 50 MSc students. He supervised/co-supervised more than 30 Ph.D. students, mentor of 20 post-docs, and is currently the supervisor of 12 Ph.D. students and mentor of 7 post-doctoral researchers. He has also given more than 120 invited/selected talks in national/international meetings/conferences/lectures.
