Dr. Pragyan Acharya is an Associate Professor in the Department of Biochemistry, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, India. The major interests of her laboratory is in understand immune dysregulation in liver diseases and understanding the interaction of the immune system in tissue injury and infection. Towards this, she combines studies on clinical samples, in vitro cultures and animal models of liver disease. She is specifically studying non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and acute-on-chronic liver failure (ACLF) using proteomics and cell biological approaches. Work carried out in her laboratory has led to the identification of the importance of the CD177+ neutrophil sub-population in ACLF and its association with patient outcomes.

Prof. Maria Elena Flacco is Associate Professor of Epidemiology, Medical Statistics and Public Health at the University of Ferrara, Italy. Her areas of research include epidemiology, public and occupational health, and biostatistics and methods.
My research focuses on investigating the patterns of gene flow in pathogen populations, focusing in phylogenetics and phylogeography as tools to recreate and understand the determinants of viral outbreaks and how this information can be translated into public policy recommendations. More specifically, my research focuses on recent arboviral outbreaks in Latin America (Zika, Chikungunya, Dengue and Yellow fever viruses and more recently SARS-CoV-2 in Brazil, Italy and South Africa), combining genetic, spatial and ecological information. I am interested in the epidemiology and ecology of viruses in natural populations. My research involves developing and applying techniques to integrate virus genetic data with traditional clinical and demographic data.
