Francisco Jose Blanco is a structural biologist working as Group Leader at the Centro de investigación Cooperativa en biociencias CIC bioGUNE, Biscay, Spain. 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,[1] and the analysis of the folding pathway of the SH3 domain from the α-spectrin protein.[2] His 68 structural biology papers listed in Web of Science have been cited over 2500 times, giving him an h-index of 27.
