    Carlos González is a Research Professor at CSIC since 2009, leading the Nucleic Acids NMR group at the Blas Cabrera Institute of Physical Chemistry.Carlos earned his Bachelor’s degree in Physics at UAM. He then joined the research group of Professor Manuel Rico at the Institute of Structure of Matter, where he pursued his PhD studies under the supervision of Prof. Jorge Santoro, focusing on computational methods for determining protein structures from NMR data. During his postdoctoral period in the lab of Professor Thomas L. James at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), he developed an interest in the structure of nucleic acids, a research theme that has continued throughout his scientific career. At present, his main research interests include non-canonical DNA structures, chemically modified nucleic acids, and molecular recognition processes involving nucleic acids. His group has contributed to these research areas with more than 150 peer-reviewed publications.
