Miguel Mompeán holds two BSc degrees (Chemistry, 2010, and Biochemistry, 2015), and a European MSc in Theoretical Chemistry and Computational Modelling, an initiative from > 30 participating institutions from different countries (2013). In 2011, MM joined the IQFR-CSIC, obtaining his international PhD in Biophysics in 2015. During this period, he was trained in protein NMR and biophysical techniques, and merged this expertise with his interests in computational approaches to tackle the complex biological question of protein aggregation in health and disease. After four years trained as a postdoc in advanced NMR and computational methods, including theoretical aspects and hardware implementation, solid-state NMR and hyperpolarization techniques, MM obtained a Junior Leader fellowship from la Caixa Foundation, and re-joined the IQFR-CSIC as a Junior Principal Investigator. This allowed MM to initiate a new research line to study homo- and hetero-amyloids and other protein aggregate forms, using a unique, powerful combination of NMR techniques in solution and in the solid-state, combined with hyperpolarization strategies and a myriad of computational approaches that range from quantum mechanical calculations to molecular or spin dynamics simulations to match theory and experiment in the quest for relevant biological answers and new methods.
