Eduardo Gil Santos joined the Bionanomechanics Laboratory (CSIC, Spain) in October 2007 through a national competitive grant (JAE Predoc). He obtained his PhD in Physics in May 2012, working on the development of novel devices, concepts and techniques in order to improve the capabilities of micro- and nano-mechanical sensors, looking for applications to biology and biomedicine. In February 2013, he joined the Materials and Quantum Phenomena Laboratory (Paris Diderot University, France) thanks to an international competitive grant (Research in Paris). During this time, the researcher learnt theoretical and experimental aspects about optomechanical devices and their applications. In November 2016, he came back to the Bionanomechanics Laboratory by means of a European grant (Individual Fellowship, Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions) with the goal of applying optomechanical devices as biological sensors. Currently, he is a "Ramón y Cajal" researcher working at the Bionanomechanics Laboratory. His main research objective is to develop optomechanical devices as biological sensors, definitively bringing them into clinical diagnosis. In the last years, he has obtained four national project (ComFuturo, RETOS Tipo A, "Ramón y Cajal" and "Intramural Especial") which has enable him to consolidate his own research line. His scientific work has been published in 1 book chapter, 28 ISI-indexed articles and 3 patents (2 granted, one registered). This work has received 707 citations, with an h-index of 15 (Publons).
