CalveteDr Juan J. Calvete (Valencia, Spain, 1957) is Research Professor of the Spanish Research Council (CSIC) and Head of the Evolutionary and Translational Venomics Laboratory at the Instituto de Biomedicina de Valencia. He studied Biology at the University of Valencia, and earned his PhD degree in Biochemistry from Complutense University (Madrid, 1985). Dr Calvete completed post-doctoral training in Protein Chemistry and Structural Biology at the Banting Institute (Toronto, Canada) (1987), the Max-Planck-Institute für Biochemie (Martinsried, Germany) (1988-92), and the Institut für Reproductionsmedizin (Hannover, Germany) (1993-98) prior to assuming his current position in the Instituto de Biomedicina de Valencia in 1998. Dr Calvete has coauthored more than 450 scientific publications in peer-reviewed journals and monographic books, having received over 19000 citations according to the Google Scholar database. His current research focuses on structural and functional proteomics of snake venoms, having developed proteomics-based tool ("venomics" and "antivenomics") for exploring the evolution, composition, interactions with antivenoms, and biotechnological applications of venoms and toxins. Since 2011, Dr. Calvete serves as President of the European Section of the International Society on Toxinology. Dr Juan J. Calvete has served as first President of the Spanish Proteomics Society (SEProt). Currently, he is Editorial Board Member of Toxicon, Journal of Venom Research, Toxin Reviews, and Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Proteomics.
