FOUNDERS

CarlosCarlos Martínez-Salgado, PhD, has a Degree and a Doctorate with Honours in Biology (University of Salamanca, 1999). From 2000 to 2002 he conducted a 3-year postdoctoral training at the Max-Delbrück-Centrum in Berlin, Germany, funded by a grant from the European Marie-Curie program. He returned to the University Hospital of Salamanca in 2003 and since then he has established a translational research group focused on the study of chronic kidney disease and cardiovascular and renal damage associated with hypertension and diabetes. He also obtained a position as Associate Professor of Physiology in the Faculty of Medicine, University of Salamanca. Since 2011, his group belongs to the Institute of Biomedical Research of Salamanca (IBSAL). The research group is a member of the Spanish National Network for Renal Diseases (REDinREN), the European Renal Association (ERA-EDTA), and the European Society of Translational Medicine (EUSTM). The group’s scientific research is sponsored by Spanish public institutions, such as the Carlos III Health Institute and other ministerial agencies. The current interests of the group are the study of mechanisms, mediators and receptors involved in the pathophysiology of fibrosis leading to renal and cardiovascular damage, and the search for effective prognostic and diagnostic biological markers of these damages.

He was visiting scientist at the University of Vermont (USA) in 1994, and at the University of Puerto Rico in 1993 and 1995. Dr. López-Hernandez spent 6 years in the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center (San Diego, CA, USA) as a Post-doctoral Associate (1999-2004). From 2004 to 2005, he spent a year in the biotech industry. In 2005, he returned to academia, founding a translational research group in the University Hospital of Salamanca and becoming Associate Professor of Physiology in the University of Salamanca. Since then, his main interests have focused on understanding the pathophysiological basis of acute kidney injury, and on developing innovative diagnostic and preventive tools. By 2012 his group was transferred to the Salamanca Biomedical Research Institute (IBSAL). In 2014 he was among the founders of the Group of Biomedical Research on Critical Care (BioCritic). In 2009 Dr. López-Hernández promoted the creation of a spin-off biotech company to further develop academic knowledge into clinical applications, where he now serves as Scientific Advisor. His group is a member of the National Network for Renal Diseases (RedinRen), sponsored by the Carlos III Health Institute, the European Kidney and Urinary Proteomics (EuroKUP) Group, the European Renal Association (ERA-EDTA), and the European Society of Translational Medicine (EUSTM). Dr. López-Hernandez has gained expertise in translational research, technology transfer and development through public-private partnerships and international initiatives.
