“I have always understood Medicine and Medical Research as an opportunity and a challenge to improve people's lives, and that has been the driving force behind my professional career”

Guillermo Antiñolo

The greatest impact of Medical Research is the one that is transferred to improve health outcomes and the lives of your patients by generating clinical innovation, which brings medical advances closer to social reality by incorporating knowledge and new technologies.
The performance of Professor Antiñolo is closely related to this concept and is what has been tried to capture in FORESIGHT.

Guillermo Antiñolo is Full Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Seville and Director of the Department of Maternal-Fetal Medicine, Genetics and Reproduction at the Virgen del Rocío University Hospital (one of the main hospitals in Spain). In addition, he directs the Master’s Degree in Assisted Human Reproduction, the Master’s Degree in Fetal Medicine and Therapy, and the subject of Genetics and Personalized Medicine in the Master’s Degree in Biomedical Research at the University of Seville.

Professor Antiñolo has a long international career in the fields of Biomedicine, Human Genetics and Medical Genomics, Fetal Medicine and Reproductive Health.

In the area of Genomic Medicine, one of his greatest milestones, as scientific director of the Genomics and Bioinformatics Platform of Andalusia, has been the Medical Genome Project that has generated the first Reference Genome in Spain (http://csvs.babelomics. org/), which is widely used by national and international researchers as a template for the identification of genetic and genomic variants.

He has also developed new diagnostic and knowledge management tools in rare diseases and genomic medicine such as an innovative genomic approach for genetic diagnosis of Mendelian diseases based on next-generation sequencing. This strategy has made it possible to efficiently increase diagnostic performance for more than 2,800 rare diseases in a standardized, safe, flexible and reproducible way. This work has been reflected in 18 scientific articles that describe this genomic solution for the diagnosis of rare diseases. In addition, he has developed two patents related to fetal surgery.


Professor Antiñolo has been part of the International Advisory Board helping the German Ministry of Health in the organization of the future development and implementation of Genomic and Personalized Medicine in the National Health System (GenomDE).

Guillermo Antiñolo has been named by FORBES one of the 100 best doctors in Spain (2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021 Edition), in the specialty of Gynecology and Obstetrics. The journal publishes the most important names by specialty, recognized nationally and internationally for excellence in the development of their healthcare, clinical, research, dissemination and teaching activities.

These initiatives have been recognized, along with others, by the Civil Health Order (2008, Ministry of Health, Spain), Favorite Son of Andalusia (2018, Andalusian Government) and the European Citizen Award (2018, European Parliament).
