Franco M. Cabrerizo received the BSc in Chemistry (2002) and PhD in Chemical Science (2005) from UNLP, Arg. He was a postdoctoral research fellow at the CIHIDECAR (CONICET–UBA, 2005–2006). He has carried out research stays in Germany, Japan and Denmark. Since 2006 he has been a Research Member of CONICET, leading (rom 2010 to date) the Photochemistry and Molecular Photobiology research group at IIB-INTECH (CONICET-UNSAM). He served as an Assistant Professor at UNLP and UNSAM (2011–2013). In 2013 he was appointed Associate Professor at UNSAM. His current research focuses on understanding the molecular aspects of mechanisms underlying the photosensitized processes triggered by UVA and visible light. This knowledge provides valuable information for the development of different biotechnological applications that might contribute to attend unresolved or neglected socially relevant local and global problems related to some chronic and/or infectious diseases, renewable energies, etc. Dr. Cabrerizo was awarded the: G. Cilento Award (I-APS, 2006), R. Caputto Award (The Nat. Acad. Sci, Arg, 2009), and Dr. E. Gros prize (The Nat. Acad. Exacts, Phys. Nat Sci, Arg, 2015).
