Dr. Gillespie is an evolutionary biologist with broad interests in organismal and molecular evolution. The major focus of his current research is deciphering the mechanisms by which obligate intracellular species of Rickettsiales (Alphaproteobacteria) invade, survive and replicate within eukaryotic cells.
In research funded by the National Institutes of Health, Dr. Gillespie utilizes phylogenetics, comparative genomics and bioinformatics to guide experimental research on various pathogenic species of Rickettsia and their associated arthropod vectors. His early research resulted in the reclassification of Rickettsia species and the identification of many lineage-specific pathogenicity factors. Through years of intense scrutinization of dozens of diverse rickettsial genomes, Dr. Gillespie and colleagues have described a large, dynamic mobilome for Rickettsia species, resulting in the identification of integrative conjugative elements as the vehicles for seeding Rickettsia genomes with many of the factors underlying obligate intracellular biology and pathogenesis. Via an iterative process of genome sequencing, phylogenomics, bioinformatics, and classical molecular biology and microbiology, Dr. Gillespie continues to lead and assist research projects on the characterization of rickettsial gene and protein function.
Professor of Cellular Immunology (and Head of College of Medical and Dental Sciences Graduate School), University of Birmingham. Raine Visiting Professor, University of Western Australia. CSO & co-Founder, Celentyx Ltd.
I have an MSc in Biotechnology from Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi, to extend my horizons and expertise in the field of biology. From 1997 to date I have been actively engaged in biotechnology, cell-biology and biochemistry-related research work. During this period, I have developed my interests and expertise in neurobiology and cell biology. In the last 13 years I have worked mainly on microtubule cytoskeleton and TRP channels.
Gwyn is Professor of Cell Biology at the University of Glasgow where he has held a group leader position since 1989. He did his undergraduate and postgraduate work at the University of Southampton, studying lipid/protein interactions under the supervision of Tony Lee for his PhD. This was followed by postdoctoral work at Dartmouth Medical School where his interest in membrane trafficking began. His research focusses upon the control of glucose transport by insulin in adipocytes, muscle and cardiac tissue.
