Narcis Fernandez-Fuentes received his B.S. degree in biology from the University of Girona in 1997. Then, he moved to Barcelona where he received his B.S. degree in biochemistry from the University Autonomous of Barcelona in 1999. Between 2000 and 2004, he did his Ph.D. studies at University Autonomous of Barcelona, supported by the Catalan Government with the FI-FIAP predoctoral fellowship, where he received a Ph.D. degree in computational Bbiology in June 30, 2004. During his Ph.D. studies, he collaborated with several bioinformatic labs in Europe and USA: from September 2001 to February 2002 he was Marie Curie Training Fellow at the Structural Genomic Group in EMBL-EBI, Hinxton; Cambridge, UK where he worked with Professor Liisa Holm. From October 2002 to April 2003 he worked with Professor Michael J.E. Sternberg, Imperial College of London, UK, supported by EMBO and FEBS short-term fellowships. Finally, between Ocober 2003 and March 2004, he served as a Visiting Fellow at Dr. Andras Fiser's Lab., Albert Einstein College of Medicine, NY, supported by Boehringer Ingelheim Fonds Fellowship . On August 2004, he was appointed Research Associate at Dr. Andras Fiser Laboratory at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, NY. Since September 2007, he serves as an RCUK Academic Fellow and Group Leader at University of Leeds, UK. The scientific interests of the group range from protein structure and function prediction, fragment-based physicochemical characterization of protein binding sites, rational design of peptide inhibitors, study of protein interactomes, and drug discovery.
