Dr. Miguel Arroyo is Full Professor at the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from Complutense University of Madrid (Spain). His main research interest is related to Enyme Technology and Applied Biocatalysis. Past projects have been related to different microbial enzymes of biotechnological interest such as lipases, penicillin acylases, D-amino acid oxidases, polyhydroxyalkanoate depolymerases and nucleoside deoxyribosyltransferases. Current research is focused on enzymes in glycochemistry such as hexosaminidases and alpha-glucuronidases.
