On January 31st, ACS on Campus invites all students and researchers in Ecuador to join ACS Editors for an engaging afternoon all about publishing. Learn what editors are looking for when reviewing manuscripts, how to give and receive peer review, and participate in an open Q&A with the editors! In partnership with Universidad Regional Amazónica Ikiam.
The event is FREE and open to all students and researchers studying the sciences, not just chemistry! All who attend the full event will receive a personalized participation certificate and the chance to win great prizes!
This event will be held primarily in Spanish.

Grissel Trujillo de Santiago, Ph.D.
Topic Editor, ACS Materials Letters, Mexico
Assistant Professor, School of Engineering and Sciences at Tecnológico de Monterrey
Grissel Trujillo de Santiago is a Professor at the School of Engineering and Sciences at Tecnológico de Monterrey. She is CSO and the scientific founder of FORMA Foods. She was trained as a Chemistry & Pharmacy Biologist at Universidad Autónoma de Nuevo León (summa cum laude); she obtained her MSc degree in Biotechnology (summa cum laude), and her Ph.D. degree in Biotechnology from Tecnológico de Monterrey. Dr. Trujillo de Santiago conducted research in Material Sciences at the Università degli Studi di Napoli Federico II (Naples, Italy) during her Ph.D. program. She was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Dr. Khademhosseini’s Lab in the Harvard-MIT Health Sciences and Technology Division (2014-2016) and the Microsystems Technology Laboratories at MIT. Dr. Trujillo is a member of the National System of Researchers in Mexico (level 2). She has published more than 70 papers, has been granted a Mexican patent, and has 6 more patent-pending technologies, including 3D chaotic printing. Her work has been cited more than 4700 times, and she has an H-index of 25. She has been recipient of several awards, including the “Professional Development” award by the ISBF, the For Women in Science Fellowship from the L’Oréal-UNESCO-AMC-CONACyT foundation, “Distinguished Citizen” by her hometown, Matamoros Coahuila, the Romulo Garza award for research that leads to entrepreneurship and is member of the “Distinguished Circle of Faculty Members” of her institution. Trujillo is an Associate Editor at ACS Materials Letters and a member of the Scientific Advisory Committee for the United Nations University (Latin America and the Caribbean program). Her main area of interest and expertise is bioprinting, biofabrication, and materials engineering for Tissue Engineering applications. Dr. Trujillo de Santiago research is currently focused on the development of novel platform technologies based on chaos to produce multilayered complex 3D micro-structured living tissues.
Erick M. Carreira, Ph.D.
Editor-in-Chief, Journal of the American Chemical Society (JACS)
Professor of Chemistry at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich
Born in Cuba in 1963 and based in Switzerland, Professor Carreira is both the first JACS editor-in-chief to live outside of the U.S. and the first Latin American to lead the journal. Carreira obtained his Bachelor of Science in 1984 from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign under the supervision of Scott E. Denmark and a Ph.D. degree in 1990 from Harvard University under the supervision of David A. Evans. He has been a full professor at the Organic Chemistry Laboratory of the ETH Zürich since 1998. A self-described “generalist,” Professor Carreira’s current research focuses on a variety of multidisciplinary fields, including natural products total synthesis, synthetic methods, and catalysis to prepare molecules with asymmetric bond construction. He is co-founder of three start-up companies and has been involved in the development of several chemistry education software tools. Professor Carreira is a member of both the U.S. National Academy of Sciences and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. He’s been a member of the American Chemical Society for 37 years and has received numerous awards from the society, including the 2013 ACS Award for Creative Work in Synthetic Organic Chemistry.
Dr. Jhoan Toro-Mendoza
Development Editor, ACS Omega
El Dr. Toro-Mendoza es físico con 20 años de experiencia en el campo altamente interdisciplinario de la ciencia de la materia blanda con más de 30 publicaciones en revistas como ACS Nano, Langmuir, JPC, entre otras. Jhoan obtuvo su Ph.D. en Física del Instituto Venezolano de Investigaciones Científicas. Su trabajo tuvo como objetivo comprender la deformabilidad de las gotas como un factor crítico que afecta la evolución de la emulsión. Después de su doctorado, Jhoan fue postdoctorante en la Universidad de Nuevo México, EE. UU., con el Prof. Dimiter Petsev. Allí desarrolló una nueva estrategia para predecir la evolución de la película durante la coalescencia de las gotas. De regreso a su tierra natal en Venezuela, Jhoan estableció su grupo de investigación independiente, ampliando su repertorio de intereses de investigación a dispositivos microfluídicos, microreología de sistemas coloidales iónicos, gotas activas, maduración de Ostwald, nanotubos de carbono autoensamblados en interfaces de fluidos, dinámica de nanopelículas, formación de emulsiones y comprensión del comportamiento granular de dispersiones liquidas. Durante este período, Jhoan supervisó estudiantes en todos los niveles desde pregrado hasta porstdocs mientras se desempeñaba como jefe del Centro de Estudios Interdisciplinarios de Física, un período que duró más de seis años. Jhoan trabajó recientemente con el Prof. Luis Liz-Marzán en CIC biomaGUNE en España en interacciones proteína-nanopartícula y formación de corona. Desde hace más de un año, Jhoan se unió a ACS Omega como publishing editor basado en Oxford, UK.
