Prof. Mónica Pérez-Temprano has been promoted to Senior Group Leader after being evaluated by the institute’s Scientific Advisory Board. The group leader joined ICIQ in 2015 through the institute’s Starting Career Programme, which supports highly talented young researchers willing to start an independent scientific career. Now, she has tenure at ICIQ.
The long-term goal of the Pérez-Temprano group is to use mechanisms as a reaction design tool for streamlining the development of more sustainable synthetic methodologies and unlock new reaction modes. Among other distinctions, Dr. Pérez-Temprano was selected as one of the “Talented 12” of 2018 by Chemical & Engineering News (C&EN), the weekly newsmagazine of the American Chemical Society (ACS), and more recently she was the recipient of the 2021 Young Investigator Award by the EuChemS Division of Organic Chemistry.
