José Manuel García Fernández is Doctor in Chemistry from the University of Seville (1988). Between 1990 and 1995 he pursued postdoctoral research at the Centre d’Etudes de Grenoble, working in the field of carbohydrate molecular and supramolecular chemistry. In 1996 he joined the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) at the Institute for Chemical Research (CSIC – University of Seville), where he promoted to Research Professor in 2006. He has co-authored about 250 scientific articles, is co-inventor of 18 patents and has supervised 21 PhD Thesis. Current targets of the laboratory include the design of self-assembled glycocarriers for drug and gene delivery, the development of glycodrugs targeting defective glycoconjugate processing enzymes and the implementation of new technologies for the preparation of prebiotic oligosaccharides as functional food ingredients.
