The Murcian researcher María Cuartero Botía, who, together with Gastón Crespo, joined UCAM HiTech last November to set up the UCAM-SENS unit, the first sensor chemistry centre in Europe, has received several appointments from associations and scientific journals of worldwide prestige for her excellent research career, focused on the area of electrochemistry, analytical chemistry and chemical sensors.   
  
The researcher has been appointed president of Division 1 of the International Society of Electrochemistry, focusing on her area of expertise, electroanalysis. In the coming years, her work in the association will be to select specific topics for the different conferences, to disseminate quality science, to encourage the participation of young researchers, especially women, and to seek funding for the progress of electrochemistry.   
 
At the same time, Cuartero has been selected as editor of the prestigious scientific journal Analytical Chemistry, of the American Chemical Society, which publishes worldwide advances in analytical chemistry in general and sensors in particular. One of Cuartero's recent publications in the journal shows nanosensors which analyse the inside of cells with a future application in medicine and clinical research, such as measuring the acidity of cells through nanosensors to see if they are tumour cells or healthy cells. 
  
This appointment ‘is enriching both scientifically and personally, and being editor of such an important journal is a dream come true; a splendid recognition for me and my whole team’, said the scientist.  
  
In addition, the researcher has received the 2022 Analyst Emerging Investigator Lectureship Award from the journal Analyst, an annual award for a researcher who has held a PhD for less than 10 years and who makes a significant contribution to the field of analytical chemistry.
