He is a Full Professor in the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Cientificas and a Member of the European Society for Biomaterials ESB, since 1987 and of the Council of the Society since 2006. He is the Fellow of the Biomaterials Societies since 2004. He held the president position of Iberian Society for Biomechanics and Biomaterials, Polymer Section of the Spanish Royal Society of Chemistry and European Polymer Federation. He has been a member of the Scientific Committee of ESB meetings in the last 10 years adn the chairman of the European Polymer Congress EPF 2011 organised in Granada, Spain, and chairman of the 2013 congress of the European Society for Biomaterials organised in Madrid, Spain. The Scientific activities are centred in the study and development of polymer systems for biomedical applications, and specifically in Tissue Engineering, Polymer Drugs and Drug Delivery Systems. He has published more than 400 refereed articles in specialised journals of Polymer Science, Biomaterials, and the Biomedical field. He has contributed with more than 40 Chapters in specialised books and is co-editor of two books on biodegradable polymers for biomedical applications and Biomaterials.
