Metal ions for biological and sustainable applications 

  • Metal ions in biofuels, petroleum, artificial photosynthesis and alternative energy systems.
  • Development of nanomaterials based in metal ions for technological, environmental and health applications.
  • Organometallic and coordination compounds of biological interest, including chelation therapy and metallodrugs

Omics approaches for studies of metal and metalloids in the environment and health 

  • Metallomics
  • Molecular omics (including genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics, glycomics and lipidomics)
  • Systems biology and Bioinformatics

Environmental bioinorganic chemistry and environmental toxicology 

  • Environmental risk assessment and management in the Exposome Era
  • Toxicology through alternative methods that reduce, refine and replace animal use (3R principle)
  • Environmental toxicology of metals and its implication for neurodegenerative disorders.
  • Metal toxicity and biomarkers: Metalloproteins, enzymes, metal homeostasis and trafficking.
