Carlos Fernández Tornero

He has dedicated a dozen years to the structural characterisation of the transcription process. He has focussed chiefly on eukaryotic polymerase ARN, the enormous macromolecular complexes that catalyze the aforementioned process.

He was the pioneer in the large-scale isolation of these complexes, as well as their characterisation by x-ray crystallography and electron microscopy. His studies, among which the structural determination of polymerase I ARN at atomic resolution stands out, together with the three-dimensional reconstruction of polymerase III ARN as a sub-nonmetric resolution, have given led to enhanced understanding of how these enzymes work.

His scientific papers have been published in journals such as Nature, Molecular Cell, Nature Structural Biology and The EMBO Journal. He has also written educational articles for the Huffington Post, the Annals of the Real Academia de Farmacia and the Boletín de la Institución Libre de Enseñanza.
