John Gordon is an internationally recognised authority on immune cell biology and immune cell-mediated diseases. For the past decade or so, John has been pioneering the field of Neuro-Immuno-Pharmacology. He is one of the world’s most highly cited researchers (www.ISIHighlyCited.com) and has a proven track record in the successful application of research within the field of translational medicine.

Gwyn W Gould

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.

Maximiliano Gutierrez

Max studied biochemistry and molecular biology in Argentina. In 2005, he was awarded a PhD in cell biology where he focused on the interactions between intracellular pathogens and the autophagic pathway. After that, he was in Gareth Griffiths Laboratory at EMBL, Heidelberg, Germany as a postdoctoral fellow of the von Humboldt foundation and EMBO focusing on the cell biology of macrophages and mycobacteria. In 2009, he became the head of the Junior Research Group “Phagosome Biology” at the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research in Braunschweig, Germany. In 2012, he was recruited as a Programme Leader Track at the National Institute for Medical Research in London. Since 2015, he is a group leader at the Francis Crick Institute in London where he is developing imaging technologies and cellular models of infection to investigate the host-pathogen interactions in tuberculosis.
