 Professor at the University of Santiago de Compostela, Spain Director of the Galician Foundation of Genomic Medicine (SERGAS, Galician Service of Health) Director of the Spanish National Genotyping Center Member of the Centre for Biomedical Network Research on Rare Diseases (CIBERER) In a first step of his career AC activity was mainly devoted to population and forensic genetics, becoming an outstanding forensic geneticist, pioneering the use of new technologies in forensic identification and creating a center where visiting scientists from all over the world are trained. His group leads scientific production in the SCI area of legal and forensic science worldwide ( Director of the Institute of Legal Medicine (USC) from 1995. From 2002 he has been working also in the clinical genetics area where he has set up the Galician Foundation of Genomic Medicine. This center is carrying out most of the molecular genetics and cytogenetic analysis requested by the Galician system of Health, covering a population of 3.5 million inhabitants and being one of the most important public genetic services in Spain (with more than 25000 cases diagnosed per year including mendelian traits, cancer genomics, prenatal diagnosis and pharmacogenomics) . AC with other colleagues from Barcelona and Madrid has implemented the Spanish National Genotyping Center (2002) (actually he is the coordinator of this center under the umbrella of the ISCIII). The research activity of his group in integrated into the Spanish Network Center for Rare Diseases (CIBERER). 

Research Interest

Most of AC recent research is now mainly concentrated in the genetics of mendelian and complex traits (particularly on sudden cardiac death, colorectal and breast cancer, psychiatric diseases and pharmacogenomics).
