Prof. Carles Arús (male) is Full Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology of the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona and head of group at UAB and the Centro de Investigación Biomédica en Red (CIBER-BBN). He is PhD in Chemistry involved with protein NMR and a postdoctoral work in muscle NMR with Michael Bárány and John L. Markley, in Chicago (IL) and Purdue (IN) USA, 1982-1985. Back in Spain (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, UAB) in September 1985, after achieving the Spanish accreditation for Tenured Assistant Professor (Idoneidades, Profesor Titular). His work was extended in in skeletal muscle to the evaluation using 31P MRS of human muscle bioenergetics of elite athletes. The group goals in the near future are to be translational with the preclinical results obtained and profiting from the clinical links established within the CIBER-BBN group. We target improving early detection or brain tumour response to therapy and of relapse. This should allow optimization of standard radio-chemical therapeutic protocols and prompt switching to second line therapies, improving survival and quality of life of patients afflicted with brain tumours. Present interests: MR-based molecular imaging of brain tumours, for diagnosis, prognosis, therapy planning and immune system involvement surrogate biomarker detection. He has co-autored more than 162 publications and advise 13 PhD Thesis since 2008 (h=34).
