Ludmil B Alexandrov

I am an enthusiastic early career scientist with an interdisciplinary training and a strong computational background. My interests lie in leveraging the information hidden in large-scale omics data for better understanding of the mutational processes causing human cancer, for identifying potential cancer prevention strategies, and for developing novel approaches for targeted cancer treatment.

Veerasathpurush Allareddy

Dr. Veerasathpurush Allareddy is an Associate Professor in the Department of Orthodontics at College of Dentistry - The University of Iowa.

Rachel L. Allen

Head of the Graduate School at St George's, University of London.

Heike Allgayer

Research fields include translational research, invasion, metastasis, disseminated tumor cells, transcription, tumor-associated proteolysis, targeted therapy, micro-RNA, molecular staging of cancer. Associate Editor of the International Journal of Cancer, and on the Editorial Boards of: Advances in Medical Sciences, Journal of Cellular and Molecular Medicine, Frontiers in Molecular and Cellular Oncology, The Open Surgical Oncology Journal.

Patrick Aloy

Dr Patrick Aloy is an ICREA Research Professor and Principal Investigator of the Structural Systems Biology lab at the IRB. He has a BSc in Biochemistry and a MSc in Biotechnology from the Univ. Autònoma de Barcelona, Spain, and spent six years as postdoctoral researcher and staff scientist at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory, Heidelberg, Germany. For fifteen years, Dr Aloy has been developing and implementing new technologies and algorithms, applying state-of-the-art methods to specific problems and bridging the gap between theoretical models and experiments in different disciplines. In the last years, he has pioneered system-scale analyses of macromolecular assemblies and networks using high-resolution three-dimensional structures, which has become a new discipline in structure prediction. Dr Aloy has over 100 publications in first-rate journals, with over 9500 citations and remarkable press coverage, illustrating the scientific and social impact of the work.

Christian L. Althaus

Research group leader at the Institute of Social and Preventive Medicine (ISPM) at the University of Bern (Switzerland). Christian Althaus' research is focused on modeling the dynamics of infectious diseases within and between hosts. He is a co-founder of the Swiss Meeting for Infectious Disease Dynamics (SMIDDY).

Javier Alvarez-Rodriguez

My research concerns the influence of nutritional and management strategies on livestock physiology and product (milk and meat) quality (sheep, cattle and swine).

Jose Amador

Professor of Soil Science and Microbial Ecology in the Dept. of Natural Resources Science, University of Rhode Island.

The research of our lab spans various aspects of the ecology and microbiology of soil, water, and wastewater. We are interested in understanding the interplay among microorganisms, flora and fauna, and the physical environment, and how this affects the biogeochemical processes they carry out, as well as their fate. This knowledge can be used to address a variety of contemporary environmental problems, from optimizing soil-based wastewater treatment, to identifying the sources of bacterial contamination in surface waters, to improving soil quality and sustainable food production. We are also interested in science education, including novel pedagogical approaches to teaching soil science, teacher training, and experiential education.

Zandrea Ambrose

Associate Professor in the Division of Infectious Diseases, Department of Medicine, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine.
