Group Leader

Dr Daniel Maspoch is a chemist who has always maintained a rewarding balance between fundamental and applied research, making pioneering contributions to the fields of porous metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), covalent-organic frameworks (COFs), metal-organic polyhedra (MOPs) and delivery systems. His scientific career began with a degree in chemistry from the Universitat de Girona, followed by a PhD in Materials Science from the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona and the Institut de Ciència de Materials de Barcelona. He then spent two years at the Northwestern University (Illinois, US) as a postdoctoral fellow in the group led by Prof. Chad A. Mirkin. He has been an ICREA research professor and group leader at the ICN2 since September 2011.

In 2014 and 2019, Prof. Maspoch was awarded a prestigious ERC Consolidator Grant and a ERC Proof-of-Concept Grant, respectively. In 2015 he received the Marcial Moreno Mas Lectureship Award, and earlier this year (2020) he received the Research Excellence Award from the Spanish Royal Society of Chemistry. He has authored 157 papers and six book chapters.

Several technologies and materials developed under his leadership are currently being used by companies with products on the market. In total, Prof. Maspoch has signed 22 research contracts with private companies and filed 11 patents, four of which have been licensed. He has also signed four technology transfer contracts that have given rise to different product families, such as LuctaCaps® and Fungipol@CP. Most recently, he has co-founded the spin-off Ahead Therapeutics S.L.
