Fernando Ortega, holds a PhD in Physical Chemistry from the University of Barcelona in 2004. The area of study focussed on developing new methods for the understanding of metabolic and signalling networks.
In 2005, he moved to the University of Birmingham to participate in a NERC funded project in the area of fish toxicogenomics with the objective of linking changes in fish genetics and metabonomics networks with the presence of a wide spectrum of pollutants in different UK estuaries and rivers.
In 2008, he started to work in the Computational Biology group at AstraZeneca where he worked in a wide variety of projects mainly related to metabolic diseases. Also, he worked in Alzheimer’s disease, more specifically developing models of Amyloid-β formation. He was awarded a Senior Research Fellow at the University of Manchester in 2014 where he developed statistic/mechanistic models in oncology and he continued developing mathematical models that consider different of aspects of Amyloid-β formation and accumulation. Fernando joined Physiomics in November 2016.
