Manuel Tena-Sempere

Manuel Tena-Sempere (1969) MD, PhD is Professor of Physiology in the Department of Cell Biology, Physiology and Immunology of the University of Córdoba, and deputy Scientific Director of the Maimonides Institute of Biomedical Research (IMIBIC), Cordoba, Spain. His expertise lies in Reproductive and Metabolic Neuroendocrinology, with attention to the neuroendocrine regulation of the reproductive axis, and in particular to the neurohormonal and molecular mechanisms responsible for the control of puberty onset in mammals. In addition, Tena-Sempere's work has allowed the characterization of novel signals involved in the integral control of energy balance and reproduction, and their mechanisms of action, with the ultimate aim of understanding the basis for alterations in puberty onset and fertility linked to severe disturbances of body energy/metabolic status, from obesity to anorexia and cachexia. Altogether, Tena-Sempere has published >240 articles in international peer-reviewed journals during the last 20 years. The international impact of his work is reflected by the high citation numbers of his publications (presently, >8100) and an H-index of 51.
