E. Ada Cavalcanti-Adam is a research group leader at the Institute of Physical Chemistry, University of Heidelberg and head of Central Scientific Facility “Biomaterials and Molecular Biology” at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Stuttgart. Her main research interest is on extracellular stimuli which guide cell structure and functions with a special focus on the role of growth factors on cell adhesion and migration.
Dr. David Cheung is a Lecturer in Biophysical Chemistry in the School of Chemistry, University of Galway. Prior to this he was Lecturer in Physical Chemistry in the Department of Pure and Applied Chemistry, University of Strathclyde and a Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellow in the Department of Chemistry and Centre for Scientific Computing, University of Warwick.
Dr. Cheung began his academic career at the University of Durham where he worked in the group of Prof. Mark Wilson. Following this he performed postdoctoral research at the University of Bielefeld (in the group of Prof. Dr. Friederike Schmid) and University of Warwick (in the groups of Prof. Michael Allen and Alessandro Troisi) before beginning his independent career.
I am Full Professor of Applied Physics, affiliated to the Department of Neuroscience, Imaging and Clinical Sciences, at the University “G. d’Annunzio” of Chieti – Pescara, Italy.
My research focuses on biomedical signal processing, mainly on development of methods for removal of artefacts from EEG signals recorded in adults and neonates, and of methods to study brain dynamics and inter-organ functional dynamics in adults and infants to detect the neural correlates of behavior in studies adopting a multimodal and multidisciplinary approach.
Professor of Molecular & Cellular Biology and Obstetrics & Gynecology and Chief Scientific Officer of the Department of Defense-Funded Gynecologic Cancer Center of Excellence and the Women's Health Integrated Research Center at Inova Health System.
Senior Lecturer in Biological Sciences at the University of Huddersfield, since 2015. Previously Junior Research Fellow, College Lecturer In Biochemistry and various postdocs at the University of Oxford (2013-15). Working on DNA replication, genome integrity and transcription factors in human cancers (and also in prokaryotes). Additional interests in phylogenomics and novel protein expression systems.
I spend my time trying to understand the proteins known as ion channels that are responsible for electrical signalling in cells using simulation and fluorescence. I am fascinated by how organisms can survive despite the chaos taking place at the molecular level.
I received my PhD from the Australian National University in 2003. After 9 years in 'The Wild West' (Perth, WA) where I won the 2008 West Australian Young Scientist of the Year 2008, I have found my way back to work at the ANU.
Liza is a protein biochemist. She was awarded a Wellcome Trust International Postdoctoral Fellowship (University of St Andrews, UK) and then a National Breast Cancer Foundation Fellowship (University of Sydney, Australia). She moved to the School of Science and Health, University of Western Sydney in 2011 where she is a Senior Lecturer in Biochemistry. Her current research focuses on understanding the molecular interactions of novel proteins involved in DNA repair and chromatin remodeling.
