Current Secretary General of Public Health and Research, Development and Innovation of the Ministry of Health and Consumption of the Andalucía Government. Also, I had been Secretary General of Research, Development and Innovation of the Ministry of Health and Families of the Andalucía Government, as well as Vice Chancellor of Personnel (HR) of the University of Córdoba.
Full Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the Faculty of Medicine and Nursing of the University of Córdoba, Spain, with four teaching components, PhD in medicine and surgery, university master's degree in research methodology in health sciences and course in development of managers, professor, trainer, and mentor in undergraduate and postgraduate studies (master's, doctorate and own studies). With more than 25 years of university teaching experience. I have directed 11 Doctoral Theses to which they were awarded the highest rating (one awarded by the Ministry of Tourism, Commerce and Sport) and 16 master's theses also with the highest rating. I have been Director and promoter for 5 editions of the pioneering course in Spanish on Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation together with Dr. Álvaro Pascual-Leone (Professor of Neurology at Harvard Medical School) and have published several teaching and specialized books and book chapters.
With more than 25 years of experience as a researcher with four research components and five regional components. Neuroscientist in the field of neuro-plasticity and -regeneration. My studies analyze the effects of transcranial magnetic stimulation, as well as other therapeutic strategies such as the administration of melatonin or principles present in nutrition in neurodegenerative processes such as multiple sclerosis or Huntington's disease. I have more than 150 papers in journals present in the JCR and I have an H index of 35. The papers developed focus on understanding the molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying diseases of the Nervous System and their potential use to improve the prognosis of neurodegenerative disease by modifying it, trying to restore cognitive-motor function in these diseases. The research activity includes having participated in projects that have had the support and funding of the public administration and industry, including as an example the funding to analyze the effect of extra-virgin olive oil intake on the course and evolution of multiple sclerosis. The work developed has been recognized with different awards for communications presented at congress, as well as having resulted in patents.
