ÓSCAR MILLET

He holds degrees in Chemistry (Univ. Ramon Llull,1994) and Chemical Engineering (IQS, 1995). After obtaining a PhD in Organic Chemistry (University of Barcelona, 1999) he joined the group of Lewis Kay in Toronto for a post-doctoral stay (University of Toronto, 2000-2004). He was then recipient of a Ramon y Cajal reincorporation contract at the Parc Cientific de Barcelona (2004-2006) and he currently is group leader at the CIC bioGUNE. His research line focuses of the use of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) to the study of biologically relevant proteins and enzymes, paying special attention to the delicate balance existing between protein stability and dynamics. Such knowledge is applied for the development of new compounds with therapeutic activity, specifically in the field of rare diseases. He have published more than 55 papers with a total number of citations (1998-2015) of 2050 and an h-index of 17. He was the Spanish delegate for the trans domain of the COST program (2009-2014). He was awarded the prize of the Real Sociedad Española de Química (2004) and the Spanish NMR group prize (2005). He currently is the president of the Spanish NMR group
