José Antonio Encinar is associate professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Miguel Hernández de Elche University. He obtained his doctorate (Biochemistry-Neuroscience) in 1998 (Instituto de Neurociencias de Alicante) and enjoyed two postdoctoral stays in Paris (Institut de Biologie Phisico-Chimique. Prof. Philippe Devaux) and Heidelberg (European Molecular Biology Laboratory. Prof. Luis Serrano). He established his current research activity with a main interest in the computational study dedicated to the search for compounds that modulate the activity of proteins of biomedical interest (cancer, obesity, diabetes). He is author or co-author of 76 research publications (http://shaker.umh.es/publications/).
