About: Jose studied his Bachelor in Biotechnology at the Universitat Politècnica de València (Spain). Later, moved to the Netherlands to study his MSc in Biomolecular Sciences and MSc in Bioinformatics and Systems Biology at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. During his career, he has become interested in the structural properties of proteins and their effect on protein functions and applications. His expertise lies in protein biophysics, data science and machine learning. Jose has also been part of the teaching team of the Centre for Integrative Bioinformatics (VU Amsterdam) and enjoys exploring innovative ways to communicate his research.
Jose aims to improve the understanding of RRM proteins with a more flexible and dynamic picture of them. He will integrate NMR data of RRM proteins into predictive models to offer a properties-enriched representation of the protein. His ultimate goal for the RNAct project is to understand RNA recognition motifs in sufficient detail to design tailored proteins which bind to an RNA sequence of choice.
