My name is Jesús R. Requena. I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Medicine at USC. My main research areas are on the one hand the elucidation of the structure of the prion, PrPSc, and on the other, the determination of the role of the DISC1 protein in the development of schizophrenia and mental disease in general. I am Coordinator of the prion-focused European Project "Priority" ( In my research group there always are research opportunities.
On a personal level, I like the work of Borges and Torresnte Ballester, baroque music, travelling, and a good conversation, although, just as Severo Ochoa once said, my main hobby is biochemistry.
