Ramón Campos-Olivas, born in Albacete in 1969, obtained his Bachelor of Science Degree in Chemistry from the University of Strathclyde (Scotland) in 1991, and graduated in Physical Chemistry and Biochemistry from the Universidad Complutense de Madrid in 1992 and 1995, respectively.
After obtaining his PhD in Chemistry in 1997 for work on NMR studies of proteins in M. Rico’s Group at the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC), Madrid, he carried out his postdoctoral research in the USA under the supervision of M. F. Summers at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, the University of Maryland, Baltimore, and A. M. Gronenborn at the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Bethesda, on the application of NMR spectroscopy to characterise diverse proteins of biomedical interest.
Shortly after returning to the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas in 2001, he obtained a Ramón y Cajal research contract from the Spanish Government and joined the CNIO’s NMR Group in 2002.
Since 2005 he has been an Honorary Professor of Biochemistry at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid. In February 2008 subsequent to the regrouping of NMR activity and focus at the CNIO, he was appointed as Head of the Spectroscopy and Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Core Unit.
