Francisco Jose Blanco is a structural biologist working as Group Leader at the Centro de investigación Cooperativa en biociencias CIC bioGUNE.[1] His research utilizes Nuclear Magnetic Resonance spectroscopy to characterize [protein structure] and protein folding. His major contributions to the field of protein folding include the study of the formation and stability of isolated β-hairpin structures,[2] and the analysis of the folding pathway of the SH3 domain from the α-spectrin protein.[3] His 68 structural biology papers listed in Web of Science have been cited over 2500 times, giving him an h-index of 27,.[4]
