From 2015 to 2017, Daniel was also part of the board of the Human Proteome Organization (HUPO).
He presented his results in dozens of international meetings and symposia acting as a keynote speaker at major psychiatric (SIRS, ICOSR, ECSR, WFSBP) and proteomics/biochemistry (HUPO, HBPP, BrMass, BrProt, SBBq) conferences. He organized as Guest Editor special editions to major psychiatric/proteomics journals and also published his own books. Currently, he is the permanent editor of a book series (Springer-Nature); a member of the editorial boards of seven scientific journals; and the Associate Editor of a Nature journal (npj Schizophrenia).
