During my research life, I had the great opportunity to mentor ten students (Bsc., Msc, PhD) and research colleagues in their integration in the research project and life as a researcher, laboratory protocols, project organization, project focus, and hopefully, helped them develop has researchers. Thanks to: David M. Dias, Tommaso Martelli, Pedro Garcia Lorente, Simone Höfler, Guillermo Iruela Martin, Josemari Urtasun Elizari, Xavier Sanz Daroca, Miguel Arbesú, Larreb Irrem and Héctor Fuentes de la Osa.

And, definitively, thanks to all those colleagues that shared a life in the lab and with who so much I’ve learned, and specially those who directly mentored me: Susana Barrera-Vilarmau ;-), André F. Martins, João P.G.L.M. Rodrigues (Guru), Maciej Mikolajczyk, Niko Sarti (sensei), Linda Cerofolini, Miguel Arbesú, Larreb Irrem, Oriol Marimon, and all of you that definitely are part of my past, present and future!
