Early Stage Researcher
Juan Salamanca (ES) ESR Project 15
I completed my bachelors in Biochemistry at the University of Castilla-La Mancha which included one year as an exchange student in the University of Sevilla..Following that I undertook a MSc Bioinformatics at the Univerisity of Copenhagen. I wrote my thesis at the Computational Biology Laboratory in the Danish Cancer Society Research Center (DCRC) which focused on molecular modelling and simulations. The aim here was to better understand long-range structural communication in an oncogenic mitochondrial chaperone and how it can be affected by post-translational modifications using atomistic molecular simulations and graph theory. After my studies I continued to work at the DCRC as a visiting researcher involved in numerous projects.
I chose the project proposed by Intelligent Pharma as it fits perfectly with my background and future goals.
