This year, at Maker Faire Galicia, we wanted the first hit we announced to be someone very special, someone who could change the world with their projects and, if it were Galician, then much better :)
Well, we got it, this year César de la Fuente (A Coruña, 1986) will be with us at the Maker Faire Galicia, the Galician biotechnologist known lately for the low-cost cardboard test to detect COVID-19 (more maker impossible), but has a trajectory that goes much further.
This man from A Coruña, who was trained at the Eusebio da Guarda Institute (A Coruña), went to León to obtain a degree in Biotechnology from the University of León, continued his studies in Vancouver, completed his post-doctorate at MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) and since 2019 has been researching at the University of Pennsylvania.
Among his achievements is being designated in 2019 by MIT as one of the 35 best innovators in the world under 35 years of age and in 2020 as the Best Young Researcher in infectious diseases in the US by the American Chemical Society.
César will share knowledge with all of us at Maker Faire Galicia 2021 during the biotechnology conference on June 3. In his presentation he will talk about his beginnings, where they see him as a biomaker and what biotechnology can offer us in the coming years.
