José Miguel Palomo Carmona

He was born in Malaga (1976). He obtained a degree in Chemistry in 1999 from the Universidad Autónoma, Madrid (UAM). In 2003 he received a doctorate in Sciences (Summa Cum Laude) from the UAM after completing his PhD thesis on the development of new biocatalysts of highly effective immobilised lipases applied to selective bio-transformations in the production of precursor drugs in the Department of Biocatalysts in the Catalysis and Petrochemical Institute (ICP) of the CSIC.

After obtaining the prestigious EMBO postdoctoral fellowship, he joined Professor Waldmann's group in the Department of Biological Chemistry of the Max-Planck Institute of Molecular Physiology, where he worked from 2004 to 2006 on the design of semi-synthetic Ras proteins and their involvement in tumoral processes. In 2006, he returned to the ICP with an I3P-CSIC contract and later secured a Ramón y Cajal contract in 2008.

From 2009, he became senior scientist at CSIC in the ICP. His current research focuses on the study and design of protein chemistry and nanocatalysis applied to carbohydrate and medical chemistry. He has published over 100 articles in highly prestigious international journals, with over 4,000 citations. He has an h-index of 38.
