Dr. Adawy, B.Sc. in Biophysics, cum laude; M.Sc. in Biomaterials) is the staff scientist responsible for the Electron Microscopy facilities at the University of Oviedo, Spain. Since her graduation she has been extensively involved in academic teaching and scientific research in multidisciplinary projects in which scientists from different disciplines collaborate to develop new scientific insights. Finishing her PhD on creating a new protein crystallisation at Radboud University, the Netherlands in the research groups of Professors Elias Vlieg (IMM) and Wim de Grip (RIMLS), in 2014, she joined Prof. Jan van Hest´s group at the same University to investigate nanoconfined crystallisation. In 2016, she moved to Groningen University to work on a Japanese-funded research project on the usage of SLS and microfluidics to study protein nucleation with Prof. Matthew Groves. However, in parallel, she has continued her research interests on biomaterials applications.
