lic. A. Wolfel Sanchez PhD (Alexis)


About Me

 As a polymer chemist with a solid background in organic chemistry and materials, I’m passionate about creating and exploring new biomaterials and technologies for biomedical applications, particularly in drug delivery, theragnostics, tissue engineering, and biofabrication. I completed my doctoral degree in Polymer Chemistry at the National University of Córdoba and Freie Universität Berlin and currently serve as a postdoctoral researcher at the Developmental Bioengineering Department of the University of Twente.

 Throughout my journey, I have had the privilege of hands-on work within esteemed scientific groups across Argentina, Spain, Germany, and the Netherlands, fostering valuable networks and engaging in impactful projects. My expertise comprehends organic synthesis and polymer chemistry, stimuli-responsive hydrogels and nanogels for radiometry and drug delivery, biomimetic materials for cell-culture and tissue engineering, and proficiency in 3D-bioprinting techniques.

 My current research focuses on the development of cutting-edge 3D-bioprinting techniques to bioprint multi-scale architectures within practical time windows, thus offering a solution to an important and long-standing challenge in the large-scale biofabrication of living matter.

 While my profile as an independent researcher was established in the past years, my current position nurtures my development as a young, emerging leader. In this regard, I have been fortunate to secure my first personal grants and contribute to project management while supporting and guiding young researchers in their scientific pursuits.
