Francesc Xavier Aviles, PhD, Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona (UAB), Spain, is director and full professor at the Department of Biochemistry & Mol Biol of UAB and group leader at the Institute for Biotechnology and Biomedicine of this institution (center also directed by him time ago). Besides UAB, where he got his PhD, he has been trained at the field of structural biology and biotechnology of proteins at the CSIC (Inst. Rocasolano, Madrid), University of Porstmouth (Biophysics Lab.), ETH-Zurich (Inst. Mol Biol & Biophys, Wüthrich Dpt.), Max-Planck Inst. Biochemie Munich (Huber Dpt.), University of Cambridge (Dept. Biochemistry), University of Uppsala (& BMC center) and University of Lund (Clinical Med. Dpt. & Grand Hosp.), with long or medium stays. There, also completed his training in bioinformatics and proteomics and a further specialization on proteolytic enzymes and inhibitors. He supervised 39 PhD thesis, coauthored more than 230 peer-reviewed publications (H-index 39) and leaded a significant number of research projects and networks at the national and international levels. He organized and/or has been invited as speaker in more that a hundred of international and national scientific meetings or workshops. Also, has been member of the executive committees and/or coordinator of sections of scientific societies (such as SEBBM, SBE, SCB), and member of editorial boards of international scientific journals, particularly in the fields of protein sciences and molecular-structural biology, protein biotechnology and proteomics.
