CURRICULUM VITAE XIMO PUIG

CURRICULUM VITAE XIMO PUIG

Curriculum Vitae Carlos Belmonte combined his research activity with a distinguished academic career and has trained many of the most prominent professors and researchers in Medical Physiology and Neurosciences of Spain. Tuesday, May 10, Belmonte has made also important contributions to general sensory neurobiology in the area of peripheral transduction by somatic and visceral primary sensory neurons deciphering some of the molecular and cellular mechanisms for pain and temperature transduction. First electrophysiological characterization of cold thermosensitive primary sensory neurons and discovery that different potassium currents contribute to cold transduction and thermal sensitivity of cold thermoreceptors Nature Neurosci. Friday, June 14, The lack of scientific knowledge on the neural basis of ocular sensations is surprising considering the clinical and social importance of its disturbances dry eye, post-surgical pain, contact lens discomfort.

First, to apply demanding criteria of scientific and intellectual excellence in their selection processes, and to expose them thereafter to a multidisciplinary vision of modern science. The work of Prof. The major objectives of EVI are to encourage cross-border cooperation in Vision Research with special emphasis on supporting research, training, health information, dissemination and other programs in the areas of blinding eye diseases, visual disorders, mechanisms of visual function, preservation of sight as well as the special health problems and requirements of the blind and visually disabled. I wish for Europe a more defined academic and professional status for scientists working together with clinical ophthalmologists and generosity in our hospitals and public institutions to allow our motivated ophthalmologists to conciliate their clinical work with the development of experimental research. What are your research priorities for the next years and who do you judge the present development in Vision Research? Eye research has experienced an impressive development in the last decades. Wenzel, Switzerland and N.

Eye research has experienced an impressive development in the last decades. In Sensory Neurobiology research: What is the strategy to promote young promising scientists? EVI was not formed for the purpose of making profits for itself.

Belmonte also founded and directed during the last 20 years, the Instituto de Neurociencias, a joint research Center of the University and the National Research Council Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Cientificas.

We need a new generation of first-class young eye scientists in Europe that works intensively, without interferences and uncertainties about their future.

  CURTAINS DISSERTATION MIXTAPE

For scientists, the most appreciated recognition is that coming from their own colleagues. The lack of scientific knowledge on the neural basis of ocular sensations is surprising considering the clinical and social importance of its disturbances dry eye, post-surgical pain, contact lens discomfort. Tuesday, May 10, Today, this figure is over 10, What was your first reaction, when you realized that you are the winner of the European Vision Award ?

At my age I do not believe in fairy godmothers and wishful thinking but rather in defining realistic goals and in working very hard to obtain them!. The first direct proof that nociceptive nerve terminals subserving pain have separate membrane mechanisms for transduction of mechanical and chemical noxious stimuli J.

The demonstration that intraocular pressure IOP variations within physiological limits activate afferent sensory nerve fibers that transmit to the CNS a sensory message about IOP values. The first direct recording of electrical currents in identified single mammalian sensory nerve terminals J.

His findings represent a fundamental advance in our present knowledge of the neurobiological basis of ocular discomfort, pain and dysesthesias, both in normality and in a number of pathological situations such as dry eye, contact lens wearing, herpes, diabetes and postsurgical pain.

The demonstration that genetic deletion of the NK1 receptor for Substance P in mice alters nociception, analgesia and aggression Nature, I wish for Europe a more defined academic and professional status for scientists working together with clinical ophthalmologists and generosity in our hospitals and public institutions to allow our motivated ophthalmologists to conciliate their clinical work with the development of experimental currriculum.

Zrenner, Germany, who is supported by the Steering Committee, consisting of Profs. The major objectives of EVI are to encourage cross-border cooperation in Vision Research with special emphasis on supporting research, training, health information, dissemination and other programs in the areas of blinding eye diseases, visual disorders, mechanisms of visual function, preservation of sight as well as the special health problems and requirements of the blind and visually disabled.

The IN in numbers. Its function is to carry out activities ancillary to those curricuulum its members, including but not restricted to research, technological development, organisation, management, fundraising and publicity pertinent to the defined aims to safeguard the procedures for high-quality Vision Research throughout Europe and worldwide.

  BEL 260 UITM ESSAY

His pioneering studies on the functional characteristics of ocular sensory innervation became established doctrine and are now part of textbooks. This Institute has become the largest and most prestigious institution devoted to brain research in Spain. First electrophysiological characterization of cold thermosensitive primary sensory neurons and discovery that different potassium currents contribute to cold transduction and thermal sensitivity of cold thermoreceptors Nature Neurosci.

Carlos Belmonte to this prestigious award.

Instituto de Neurociencias de Alicante

Belmonte has made also important contributions to general sensory neurobiology in the area of peripheral transduction by somatic and visceral primary sensory neurons deciphering some of the molecular and cellular mechanisms for pain and temperature transduction. Monday, April 15, I attended first an ARVO meeting in and we were about people.

The work of Prof. That said, I wish that the gradual acceptance cruriculum scientific values as common base for the curriculum between humans helps us to develop a more rational and peaceful global human society. Durriculum finally, the decision of returning to my home country to contribute actively to the development of its research infrastructure, badly needed in the post-civil war Spain, was very important to define what and how I could do in research during the rest of my life.

Carlos Belmonte has made seminal contributions to the functional characterization of the non-visual sensory innervation of cruriculum eye. He has also contributed to identify the participation of sensory neuropeptides in corneal wound healing, discovered the existence of sensory and autonomic fibers activated by intraocular pressure changes and, very recently established the role of cold ocular fibers in the maintenance of basal tear secretion.

My years as a NIH postdoctoral fellow in USA were also fundamental to understand and appreciate the rules and values of international research.
