Carlos Polanco is a postdoctoral researcher at Instituto Nacional de Ciencias Médicas y Nutrición Salvador Zubirán, he has a PHD in science from Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México. Since 2007 he developed three lines of research as group leader: mathematical epidemiology, developing an early warning supervised model for infections of the respiratory tract, with clinical and non-clinical variables; computational proteomics, developing a supervised method (Polarity index method), which identifies the main function associated with proteins; prebiotic proteomics, computationally recovering proteins dating back 4 billion years ago, re-creating the experiments of Miller-Urey, Fox & Harada, B.M. Rode, and P.H. Abelson. These implementations were Markovian models executed in high performance computing architectures. Dr. Carlos Polanco also directs five thesis of master degree and one of doctorate. He has published 36 scientific articles, and 70 reviews in Nature magazine, Science magazine, Lancet, and Annals of Internal Medicine. His supervised method PIM is patent pendin
