Aniruddha Adhikari

Dr. Adhikari is a highly accomplished Biochemist currently associated with University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA), USA. Dr. Adhikari's research is focused on the development of nanohybrid drug delivery systems and nanomedicines for the treatment of chronic diseases. His particular focus was to explore the therapeutic potential of nanomaterials against chronic diseases where redox modulation plays a crucial role with an emphasis on their molecular mechanism of action including bio-molecular interactions, toxicity, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics. Dr. Adhikari's seminal work on the chemoprevention of bilirubin encephalopathy has led to the discovery of a new and groundbreaking one-of-its-kind nanomedicine, which is currently under phase 2 clinical trial. His current research interest includes bacteriophage mediated nanotherapy and stimuli-responsive antibody conjugated nanomaterials.

Dr. Adhikari has received numerous prestigious national and international awards and grants for his research contributions. Most notable ones are Gandhian Young Technological Innovation (GYTI) Award/Appreciation from the Rashtrapati Bhavan (Office of the President, Republic of India), DMM Travel Grant from Company of Biologists, UK, Nano-challenge Award, Indo-US and four GRC Travel Grants from Gordon Research Conference, USA.

Dr. Adhikari's research contributions are widely acknowledged, and in his short research career span of about seven years he has published more than 50 research articles in high-impact prestigious international peer-reviewed journals (h-index: 13, i-10 index: 17), filed 3 patents, delivered lectures in 16 international conferences. Additionally, he has twice served as the discussion leader at Gordon Research Seminar (GRS). He also serves as the Editorial Board member and reviewer of various journals.

Antonio Guilherme Basso Pereira

Antonio Guilherme Basso Pereira is a professor at Universidade Tecnológica Federal do Paraná (UTFPR). He has a B.S. (2005), M.Sc (2008) and Ph.D (2013) degree in chemistry from Maringa State University (Brazil). Part of his PhD research was performed at University of California, Davis (UC Davis, 2011-2012). The main research goal is to add value to under used natural polymers, generally, but not only, found as agricultural wastes, to produce polymeric devices for environmental, biomedical and other applications.

Jovan M Nedeljkovic

Dr. Jovan Nedeljković got his bachelor degree at the Faculty of the physical chemistry of the Belgrade University in 1984, and since then he has been employed in the Institute of nuclear sciences Vinča in Belgrade. Dr. Nedeljković obtained his Ph.D. degree in 1991 at the Clarkson University, Potsdam, USA. After that Dr. Nedeljković returned to the Institute of nuclear sciences Vinča, and in 1999 he was appointed as researcher professor. Dr. Nedeljković is the principal investigator in the field of nanomaterials. He has extensive international collaboration, and he worked in Argonne National Laboratories, and National Renewable Energy Laboratory. Under his supervision, 12 Ph.D. students graduated. Dr. Jovan Nedeljković published more than 170 scientific papers. Papers published by Dr. Nedeljković have been cited more than 6000 times, and his h-index is 40. Dr. Nedeljković is a referee for many journals. Dr. Nedeljković main research interest includes the development of colloidal methods for synthesis of nanoparticles of different type of materials. His research goal is to obtain nanoparticles with high uniformity and controllable shape (spheres, rods, wires, tubes), as well as to understand the size- and shape-dependent properties of materials at nano-scale. Also, the research interest of Dr. Nedeljković is a synthesis of nanocomposite materials using nanoparticles as building blocks (polymer-based nanocomposites, functionalized textile fibers, thin films, etc.).
