Affiliation: Institute of Immunology and Experimental Therapy, Polish Academy of Sciences, Wrocław, Poland (Bacteriophage Laboratory).Position: professor.
Current field of interest: non-bactericidal effects of phages in mammals; i.e. phage molecular biology tools for studies of phage impact on immunological system and other physiological aspects in mammals.
Group leader of the Epigenetics of Lipid Metabolism Group, IMDEA Food Institute, Dr. Alberto Dávalos holds a degree in Pharmacy and Biochemistry by San Marcos University (Lima) and a PhD in Pharmacy by Universidad Complutense de Madrid (Madrid).
He has conducted postdoctoral research at the Hospital Ramón y Cajal (Madrid), at Yale University School of Medicine, (New Haven), and at New York University School of Medicine (New York). Dr. Dávalos’s research program focuses in identifying and characterizing new noncoding RNAs (miRNAs, lncRNAs and other type of regulatory RNAs) that regulate lipid metabolism and the effects of minor dietary components (micronutrients) on their expression.

Rikke Meyer is associate professor of microbiology at the Interdisciplinary Nanoscience Center at Aarhus University, Denmark. Her research combines microbiology and nanoscience in the pursuit of understanding how bacteria attach to surfaces and form biofilm, and how these can be prevented or treated through novel formulations of antimicrobial compounds or antifouling surfaces.
