Education

Eva Sánchez Rexach earned her technical certificate in Industrial Chemistry, as well as her degree in Industrial Organization from the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU).

During 2013-2014 she did the Master in Advanced Materials Engineering in the Faculty of Engineering in Bilbao. In the course of the master project she studied the interactions and miscibility of biodegradable polymers with biologically active molecules under the supervision of Prof. Emiliano Meaurio and Prof. Jose-Ramon Sarasaua.

In 2018 she earned her international doctorate in Materials Engineering and Sustainable Processes through the development of biodegradable polymeric blends with biologically active compounds for making drug eluting medical devices under the supervision of Prof. Emiliano Meaurio and Prof. Jose-Ramon Sarasaua.

Research

Her research interests have always focused on biodegradable polyesters for making medical devices. These materials combined with biologically active molecules, have the ability of preventing infections related to medical devices.

During her PhD at Faculty of Engineering in Bilbao, she worked in the creation of amorphous solid dispersions (ASDs) formed by miscible polymer-drug blends for making drug eluting devices, and in the application of a biocompatible antifouling coating which limits the biofilm formation on polymeric surfaces.

In 2019 she earned a Marie Skłodowska-Curie (MSCA) Global Fellowship, and she is currently at the University of Washington in Seattle, carrying out a project that combine new fully biodegradable water-filled hydrogels with additive manufacturing or 3D printing to design smart materials that can undergo a temporal change in their shape under the influence of an external stimulus, under the supervision of Dr. Alshakim Nelson, and under the guidance of Dr.Haritz Sardon.
