Daniel Ortuño-Sahagún is Researcher Professor in biomedical sciences at the University of Guadalajara, Guadalajara, JAL, Mexico, and Visiting Professor with the M.S. in neuroscience and drug development, University of Barcelona, Barcelona, Spain. Ortuño-Sahagún was awarded a Ph.D. in biomedical sciences at the Cajal Institute (Spanish Research Council), Madrid, Spain; he has taught under- and postgraduate levels for 26 years including periods in Spain (Madrid, Barcelona, Seville, and Alicante) and Germany (Leipzig). Having published over 40 articles in scientific journals with more than 500 citations and 28 book chapters, he has also been Coeditor of 5 books. He is a Review Editor for Frontiers in Aging Neurosciences, and expert Reviewer for 17 international journals. He is currently Vice-President of the Sociedad Mexicana de Biología del Desarrollo; his main research interests lie in elucidating the molecular mechanisms that regulate gene expression during the differentiation of precursor cells in the central nervous system, alongside building knowledge of the molecular mechanisms involved in aging and various neurodegenerative pathologies, such as Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's, and multiple sclerosis. He also studies the immunomodulatory effects of organosulfur compounds in garlic and the development of vaccines through genetic engineering.
