Main honors, awards, and competitive grants that I have received during my career

Recipient of a Ramón y Cajal Fellowship from the Spanish Ministry of Science, Innovation, and Universities (1/9/2024 – 31/8/2029).
The Ramón y Cajal Fellowships is the most prestigious program of the Spanish Ministry of Science, Innovation, and Universities to attract experienced researchers with an outstanding, international profile and retain them in Spanish academia. Thanks to this fellowship Dr. Lorenzo will join the University of A Coruña as a tenure-track senior researcher and assistant professor.

Recipient of a Postdoctoral Junior Leader Fellowship (Incoming) from Fundación La Caixa for the project “A digital twin to optimize radiotherapy of prostate cancer and patient monitoring via personalized computational forecasts based on biomechanistic models” (1/9/2023 – 31/8/2024).
The Postdoctoral Junior Leader Fellowships is a highly competitive and prestigious program from one of the largest private foundations in Spain (Fundación La Caixa). These fellowships are awarded to experienced researchers whose performance is outstanding in terms of originality and significance of their contributions, while also exhibiting leadership potential to head their own research group. Although the intended ending date was 31/08/2026, Dr. Lorenzo resigned and declined the last two annuities in order to start his Ramón y Cajal fellowship at Universidade da Coruña in September 2024.
Recipient of an H2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Action – Individual Fellowship for the project “PICModForPCa: Personalised Image-based Computational Modelling Framework to Forecast Prostate Cancer” (1/9/2020 – 31/8/2023).
The H2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions – Individual Fellowships are a prestigious and considerable source of funding from the European Commission for young postdoctoral researchers. Due to the high number of candidate projects and the international scope of the program, obtaining one of these fellowships requires an extremely high grade during a strict assessment of the project, including scientific excellence, quality of project implementation, the researcher CV, and the impact of the project in the scientific community, society in general, and the scientific career of the postdoctoral  researcher.
