Jordi Villà-Freixa

PhD in Chemistry.

Vice Chancellor for Research and Professor at the UVic-UCC.

Know more

Jordi Villà-Freixa received his PhD in Chemistry in 1998, at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, working on chemical reactivity and dynamics of small molecules in the gas phase.

After several pre- and postdoctorals stays at the University of Minnesota, visiting Don Truhlar’s lab, and at the Institut Municipal d’Investigació Mèdica in Barcelona, in Ferran Sanz’s lab, he obtained a long term EMBO fellowship to join Arieh Warshel’s lab at the University of Southern California.

There, his research definitely turned into condensed phase molecular dynamics, focusing on enzymatic reactivity. After this postdoctoral stay, he joined the faculty of the Universitat Pompeu Fabra, in Barcelona, first as a Ramón y Cajal fellow and later as an associate professor.

He promoted the first official MSc program on Bioinformatics in Spain in 2004. In 2012 he moved to the young University of Vic -Central University of Catalonia- as the dean of the Faculty of Sciences and Technology. Since 2014, he is the Vice Chancellor for Research and Professor at UVic-UCC. In addition to UofM and USC, he has visited Imperial College London, the IIMCB in Warsaw, Oxford, UCSF and, recently, University of Chile.
