Do not forget to indicate last name, first name and laboratory under your photo on the online platform.
Dr. Vicente Micol is the head of the research group “Development and Design of Bioactive Molecules” at the Institute of Research, Development and Innovation of Health Biotechnology” (IDiBE) of the Miguel Hernández University (UMH). He obtained his PhD at the University of Murcia (Spain) on biomembranes and made his postdoctoral research at the Division of Biology of CALTECH (Pasadena, CA) in mitochondrial diseases.
Currently he is Full Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the UMH and holds the position of Vice Rector for International Relations since June 2015.
His research group is focused on the biological activity and mechanism-of-action of plant polyphenols and their application to alleviate human chronic diseases such as cancer, obesity and non-communicable diseases using cell and animal models and human trials. The group has also an intense activity on technology transfer and services to companies belonging to areas such as food market, functional beverages, nutraceuticals and dermocosmetics. His teaching activity has been focused on the Biotechnology Degree, Cellular and Molecular Biology PhD Program and several Biotechnology related Masters.
