Dr. Roberto Parra-Saldívar obtained his bachelor's degree in biochemical engineering from Instituto Tecnológico de Morelia (1995), followed by a master in food science and technology from Universidad Autónoma de Querétaro (2000), and doctoral degree in biotechnology from Cranfield University, UK (2004). In 2005 he was contracted in a FP6 EU funded project (SOPHIED) as a postdoc at Westminster University, London, UK. From 2017 to 2018 he was a visiting professor at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Harvard University and Brigham Women Hospital in Boston, USA. During his professional carreer, he worked as project manager at ECOLAB (2000), joint to Tecnológico de Monterrey, in 2009 at the Water Center, and later in 2014 he became part of the Biotechnology Center in the Emerging Technology Group. He is currently a member of the National Researchers Council SNI Level II, and he is a member of the Mexican Academy of Science. Dr. Parra Saldívar has been working as a PI in more than 30 national and international projects. He published more than 70 research papers in indexed journals, H-factor 20 and more than 1,200 cites.

In our group we work very closely with the industry in order to provide scientifically-based solutions, and we create innovation for increasing their competitiveness on an international level. We do it by developing projects along with the industries, adapting to their needs and applying the scientific knowledge we’ve been generating for years.
