Mercedes Vila received her PhD (suma cum laude) in Materials Physics from the Autonomous University of Madrid, Spain, in 2003 for her work carried out at the Materials Science Institute of Madrid (Spanish National Research Council CSIC). After 5 years of international post-doctoral experience on the design of biomaterials for regenerative medicine, funded by the European Commission through Marie Curie actions and National Spanish and Portuguese scientific Programs, she spent 5 years as a researcher in one of the most prominent European groups of Nanomedicine and Regenerative Medicine, at the Faculty of Pharmacy (Universidad Complutense de Madrid, Spain).

In 2010 she was awarded with the Lóreal-UNESCO Award "For Women in Science" as recognition of her scientific career as young researcher and in 2012, she was positively evaluated as Distinguished Researcher through the Programme I3 (Incentives for strengthening of research activity of lecturers-researchers with a prestigious research track record, Spanish Ministry of Science and Technology).
In 2013 she joined University of Aveiro (Portugal) as Principal Investigator, where nowadays is the coordinator of the lab for graphene applications in Nanomedicine. Her interests are based on the design and applications of graphene oxide nanoparticles as vectors for imaging and hyperthermia of tumors, and carbon nanotubes for tissue growth stimulation.
