Dr. Ramon Cacabelos

Dr. Ramón Cacabelos (Cambados, 1955) is one of our most distinguished scientists at an international level in the fields of Neuroscience, Genomic Medicine, and Pharmacogenetics of Central Nervous System diseases.

Biography

After graduating in Medicine and Surgery from the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Oviedo, he began his professional career in the Department of Psychiatry at Osaka University (Japan), where he specialised in Neuropsychiatry and obtained a Doctorate in Medical Sciences (Internal Medicine and Psychiatry) (DMSci). He has a second doctorate in Medicine and Surgery (Ph.D.) from the University of Santiago de Compostela, where he was Professor of Psychiatry after his return to Spain. Later he obtained by opposition the position of Titular Professor in the Faculty of Medicine of the Complutense University of Madrid.

 

He voluntarily left his life position at the Complutense University of Madrid to form EuroEspes and create the first Institute for Central Nervous System Diseases, which later became the EuroEspes Biomedical Research Centre, the current headquarters of the International Centre for Neuroscience and Genomic Medicine in A Coruña.

 

He was appointed the first Professor of Genomic Medicine in Europe at Camilo José Cela University in Madrid, where he also held the position of Vice-Chancellor for Research and Science. He founded the Spanish Society of Genomic Medicine, the World Association of Genomic Medicine and the Spanish Association of Medical Nutraceuticals. In his long scientific career he has directed hundreds of national and international research projects, collaborating with leading Asian, European, and American scientists, such as Prof. Tsuyoshi Nishimura, Masatoshi Takeda, Hiroshi Wada, Takehiko Watanabe, Atsushi Yamatodani and Hiroyuki Fukui in Japan, Prof. Bengt Winblad of the Karolinska Institute in Sweden, Prof. Alen Roses of North Carolina (USA), Prof. John Pearson of New York, Prof. Dmitry Goldgaber of New York, Prof. Dmitry Goldgaber of New York and Prof. Dmitry Goldgaber from Stony Brook, New York (USA) and others. In addition to this, he has more than 2000 publications and 30 books; he is a member of a hundred scientific and medical societies, referee of hundreds of international scientific journals, Editor-in-Chief of more than 20 national and international medical and scientific journals, and editor of the first world guide to pharmacogenomics(World Guide for Drug Use and Pharmacogenomics,EuroEspes Publishing Co., 2012) and the first treatise onPharmacoepigenetics (Pharmacoepigenetics) (Academic Press/Elsevier, 2019).

 

His medical activity, as Director of the International Centre for Neuroscience and Genomic Medicine in Spain, and his corporate responsibilities, as President of the EuroEspes Group, are combined with his Chair in Genomic Medicine at the Faculty of Medicine of the Continental University in Peru and his scientific work as Professor at the Sechenov University in Moscow.
