Jorge obtained his PhD in Biochemistry in 2008 (Complutense University of Madrid), under the supervision of Prof. Álvaro Martínez del Pozo and Prof. Pepe Gavilanes.

After completing his PhD, Jorge joined the laboratory of Prof. Julio Fernández at Columbia University (New York, US). Prof. Fernández pioneered the development of single-molecule techniques by Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) to examine the mechanical architecture of proteins. During his time in New York, Jorge led several research projects to understand how the elasticity of proteins can be regulated by posttranslational modifications. His research was supported by several foundations and the NIH through a K99/R00 Pathway to Independence grant.

In 2014, Jorge joined the CNIC. Jorge was awarded the SBE-33 prize by the Spanish Biophysical Society “for his studies on the importance of mechanical forces on protein dynamics by using single molecule techniques and AFM”. In 2015, Jorge’s trajectory was recognized by a Ramón y Cajal award, the top distinction given by the Spanish Government to early career investigators.
