Luís Matías Hernández
Luis was responsible for all the R&D work undertaken in the lab for Artennua from the very beginning, and tried every method possible to optimize the concentration of artemisinin. In true Luis style, when all of them failed, he came up with his own. His approach did work and so, since October 2017, he heads up the production department in the Canary Islands.
PI at Sequentia Biotech from 2015 to 2018, where he was responsible for all the R&D work carried out in the laboratory for Tricopharming and Artennua from the beginning, as well as for different lines of plant biopharming research.
Postdoctoral fellowship in Biopharming of plants at the CRAG, Barcelona. Doctorate in Plant Genetics at the University of Milan. Master in International Health from Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh. Postgraduate Diploma in Natural Products and Plant Biotechnology by CIHEAM, Greece. Degree in Biochemistry from the University of Navarra.
Science communicator at BigVanScience.
Luis is also an author, traveler and prolific networker.
