Dr. Barbacid is Professor AXA-CNIO of Molecular Oncology and head of the Experimental Oncology group at the National Centre for Oncological Research (CNIO), a centre he founded in 1998 and of which he was Director until June 2011.

Dr. Barbacid studied Chemical Sciences (speciality in Biochemistry) at Madrid Complutense University. He obtained his doctorate at the same University in 1974 after reading his doctoral thesis at the Institute of Cellular Biology at the Higher Council for Scientific Research (CSIC). That same year he joined the USA National Cancer Institute (Bethesda, Maryland) where he carried out his post-doctoral training until 1977.

In 1978 he formed his own research group focusing on the characterisation of animal retroviruses. In the spring of 1982, Dr. Barbacid's group managed to isolate for the first time a mutated human gene capable of causing cancer (oncogene) and demonstrated that it was a mutated version of the H-Ras gene, previously identified in certain strains of rodent retrovirus. These discoveries, carried out independently in another two research groups, opened up a new field in Molecular Oncology and were used to establish the molecular bases of cancer in humans. Other notable discoveries include the identification of the family of tyrosine kinase (Trk) receptors and their role as receptors of neurotrophins, a group of growth factors essential for the survival of neurones. More recently, his studies have demonstrated that the cell cycle in mammals is conceptually similar to that of yeasts and that the interphase CDKs are only essential in certain cell types, thus opening up the possibility of their use as therapeutic targets.

He worked in the pharmaceutical industry for ten years (1988-1998), and in 1995 became Vice-President of the Oncology area. During the period 1995-98, Dr. Barbacid introduced the development of selective inhibitors against molecular targets, and was responsible for the generation of Farnesyl Transferase inhibitors and CDKs.

He has been awarded numerous prizes and distinctions, notable amongst which are the King Juan Carlos Prize (Madrid, 1984), the Rhodes Memorial Award from the American Association for Cancer Research (USA 1985), the Josef Steiner Award (Switzerland, 1988), the Ipsen Neuronal Plasticity Award (Vienna, 1994), the Charles Rodolphe Brupbacher Cancer Prize (Switzerland 2005) and the Medal of Honour from the International Cancer Agency of the World Health Organization (France, 2007). He is also a member of EMBO and Doctor Honoris Causa from the Menéndez y Pelayo International University and the University of Cantabria.

He is the author of 257 scientific publications, of which 187 are original research works, 24 invited reviews; the remainder are chapters in books. Dr. Barbacid currently has an h-index ("Hirsch Factor") of 94.
