In 2008 he won the call for the position of Group Leader at the Oncology Area of the CIBIR. His main line of work centers on the development of new pro- and anti-angiogenic therapies in the fight against cancer, Alzheimer´s disease, and other clinically relevant diseases. His studies usually involve genetically engineered mice as well as cutting-edge techniques at the molecular and cellular level. The angiogenesis laboratory believes in translational (from bench to bedside) research and is leading several clinical trials based on basic observations made by the group.

Dr Martínez´s curriculum contains more than 190 publications in specialized international journals and he has been the principal investigator of numerous national and international research grants.
