Felix Goñi, Avanti award for best European research in lipids
Date:3/5/2013

This press release is available in Spanish.

Professor Flix Goi, Doctorate of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology of the University of the Basque Country and Director of the Biophysics Unit, joint CSIC-UPV/EHU center, has just received the European Avanti award. This award is the most important in the world for research on lipids. Until now the American Society of Biophysics has issued this award, but this year for the first time, the European Biophysical Societies Association (EBSA) has also granted it. The awards ceremony will be held during the 9th European Congress of Biophysics, which will take place in Lisbon this coming July 13-17. At the ceremony, Professor Goi will deliver a speech explaining his most recent research.

This new award aims to recognize the most important European scientific contributions in the understanding of Biophysics of lipids, including metabolism, enzymology, structure and membranes. Lipids include materials as diverse as body fats, olive oil or the delicate membranes covering living cells. In Professor Goi's case, the award honors, above all, his work on certain lipids of cell membranes that trigger "programmed cell death", a key process in embryonic development and the natural defenses against cancer.

Flix Goi (Donostia-San Sebastin, 1951) holds a Doctorate in Medicine and Surgery from the University of Navarra (1975). He completed post-doctoral studies at the University of London (Royal Free Hospital) and in 1978 joined the UPV/EHU in the Faculty of Science and Technology, where he began to develop what later would be the Bio-membranes Group, and since 1999, the Biophysics Unit. His group is one of the highest performing of the Basque Government and the UPV/EHU. His research work focuses on molecular interactions in cell membranes.

He has published 6 books and 305 articles, and has given numerous lectures at
