Upon completion of his second MSc degree, he moved to Lyngby (Denmark), where he enrolled in a PhD program at the Center for Process Biotechnology at the Technical University of Denmark and did research on novel methods for the production and purification of biopharmaceuticals, especially plasmid DNA. Upon obtaining his PhD degree, Marcos stayed at the Royal Veterinary and Agricultural University of Denamark as a researcher for two years.
In 2002 Marcos moved to San Sebastian (Spain). Since then, he has founded three biotech companies. The first one, now more an investing tool, was the origin of the second one which went bankrupt recently. The third one is still up and running.
Since mid-2012 Marcos has devoted his energies full-time to the development and protection of the technological solution that supports this business project and to start this initiative. Currently, Marcos promotes the Bolt-on Bioreactor (BoB) project while working full time as Technology Transfer Manager at a biomaterials research center.
