Carlos Prieto obtained his PhD in Computational Biology at the Cancer Research Center of Salamanca (CIC USAL/CSIC) in 2009. In his PhD his research was focused on the study of molecular cancer processes. He developed new algorithms, software and methods for the analysis of transcriptomic and protein interaction data. His post doctorate professional experience has been focused on the corporate and academic sectors. He worked as a Bioinformatic Analyst for Icinetic, performing a project for the pharmaceutical company PharmaMar and he also worked for the biopharmaceutical company Celgene as computational biologist. In the academic sector, he obtained two postdoctoral positions in INBIOTEC (Biotechnological Institute of Leon) and in the Biomedical and Biotechnological Institute of Cantabria (IBBTEC CSIC). In these positions, he developed new bioinformatics skills in the biotechnology and human health research areas. He is currently working at the University of Salamanca (USAL), where he is exploiting all his bioinformatics skills for the creation of a new bioinformatics core facility. His experience in research projects and peer reviewed articles during the last years (ORCID: 0000-0001-8178-9768), includes data visualization, protein-protein interaction networks, RNA-Seq analysis, reverse engineering, microarray analysis, pattern recognition, machine learning, genome sequencing, algorithm design, software development and integrative bioinformatics.
