Marcelo A. Marti

Dr. Marcelo A. Martí earned his PhD in Biophysical Chemistry from the University of Buenos Aires (Argentina) in 2006 working with Prof. D.A. Estrín and F. Doctorovich. In this period, he pioneered the use of hybrid QM/MM based methods to study metalloprotein reactivity with Reactive Nitrogen and Oxygen Species (RNOS), while performing the first studies on HNO reactions with metallporphyrins. After his PhD, he worked on heme protein Raman spectroscopy in the field of protein electron transfer. In 2010, he accepted a professorship in the Department of Biological Chemistry at the University of Buenos Aires where he leads the protein structure biophysics and bioinformatics group. As a scientist in the triple frontier of chemistry, informatics, and biology, his research is focused on the comprehension of the underlying chemical basis of protein function. This approach has allowed for the construction of a detailed atomic picture of several biological processes, in particular metalloprotein reactions with RNOS. Prof. Martí has published over 100 works in international Journals such as Plos Comp. Biol., J. Am. Chem. Soc., PNAS, and Nat. Comm. He received the Technology Review Argentina Innovators Under 35 Award in 2012, and the Young Scientist Award in Chemistry from the Argentinean National Academy of Sciences in 2013. Since 2008, Dr. Martí has been a member of CONICET.
