Professor María Vallet-Regí is a Spanish chemist, scientist and Professor at Universidad Complutense de Madrid, Spain. She is a widely recognized and cited researcher in Biomedicine, particularly in the fields of regenerative biomaterials and drug delivery systems. Her publications (more than 650 peer-reviewed papers) have been cited over 37,000 times and her h-index is 90. Prof. Vallet-Regí has been awarded many important International prizes and she is member of the Spanish academies of Pharmacy and Engineering and the International College of Fellows of Biomaterials Science and Engineering (FBSE) and the American Institute for Biomedical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE).

Prof. Vallet-Regí is widely regarded for her contributions to Biotechnology and Medicine. Moreover, she is a Highly Cited Researcher 2018 (Clarivate Analytics). This list recognizes world-class researchers selected for their exceptional research performance, demonstrated by production of multiple highly cited papers that rank in the top 1% by citations per field and year in Web of Science. She is recognized as a pioneer in the field of ceramic materials applied to medicine. On one hand, she has been working in the biomaterials area developing bioceramics for bone grafting applications and scaffolds for regenerative biomedicine. On the other hand, prof. Vallet-Regí has intensely investigated on nanocarriers of different nature to deliver therapeutic agents to diseased tissues without affecting healthy organs. She was the pioneer who suggested introducing drugs into the pores of mesoporous silica materials, which inspired thousands of publications worldwide involving mesoporous silica nanoparticles for drug delivery.

She is a Fellow of Biomaterials Science and Engineering at the International College of Fellows of Biomaterials Science and Engineering (ICF-BSE), Numbered Fellow of the Spanish Royal Academy of Engineering and the Royal National Academy of Pharmacy and Fellow of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE). Moreover, she has received the Jaime I Basic Research Award 2018, the Prix Franco-Espagnol 2000 from Societé Française de Chimie, the Spanish Royal Society of Chemistry (RSEQ) award in Inorganic Chemistry 2008, the Spanish National Research Award in Engineering 2008, FEIQUE Research award 2011 and the RSEQ Research Award and Gold Medal 2011. She has received the Honorary degree (Doctor Honoris Causa) by Universities of Pais Vasco (Spain) 2013 and Jaume I (Spain) 2015, and is Honorary member of the Materials Research Society in India. Moreover, she has been also awarded as IUPAC 2013 Distinguished Woman in Chemistry or Chemical Engineering and the Prix Miguel Catalán 2013 of Madrid Community. She was included in the 1k Club of Chemistry of Materials and have received an ERC Advanced Grant (call 2015). More recently she received the Lilly Foundation Award for Distinguished Scientific Career, 2016 and the Julio Pelaez award 2017 to Female Pioneers in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics.

She works mainly in the following fields of research:

Bioceramic based bone grafting materials and scaffolds for regenerative biomedicine.

Production and study of bioceramic systems for controlled release of biotechnological and antitumoral species.

Nanoparticles and biocompatible matrices for biotechnological applications.

Silica based ordered mesoporous materials as release systems of biologically active species, cell encapsulation in silica porous materials, mesoporous materials for gene therapy and transfection, organic-inorganic hybrid materials.

She has written more than 700 articles indexed in the Journal Citation Report. According ISI Web of Knowledge she was the most cited Spanish scientist in Materials Science from 1997 to 2013. Now is the second. Her H factor is 90, and she has been cited more than 37.000 times. See Scolar Google.
