Dr. Vincenzo Brancaleone is Assistant Professor of Pharmacology, Department of Science, University of Basilicata.
Dr. Brancaleone main research field includes:
1) vascular biology in vivo and in vitro in physiopathological conditions related to gaseous mediators: role of nitric oxide (NO) and hydrogen sulfide (H2S);
2) role of sphingosine-1-kinase/sphingosine-1-phosphate (S1PK/S1P) pathway in vascular, respiratory and inflammatory processes;
3) role of Annexin A1 and its receptor (Formylated Peptide Receptor 2, FPR2) in resolving mechanism in inflammation.
Dr. Brancaleone is full member of British Pharmacological Society (BPS) and Italian Society of Pharmacology (SIF).
He performs reviewer activity for international relevant and impacted scientific journal: Mediators of Inflammation (IF:3.263), British Journal of Pharmacology (IF:4.409), Inflammation Research (IF:2.109), Diabetes & Vascular Disease Research (IF:2.116), FasebJ (IF:5.299)

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.
Mainly involved in the discovery of new bioactive compounds from Antarctic and Arctic bacteria. Also working on on Antarctic psychrophilic microorganisms with potential biotechnological applications, and the dissection of the virulence determinants of some human pathogens by the use of non-vertebrate host model, like Caenorhabtidis elegans.
Dr. Liang Gao currently works as a senior Research Fellow at the Center of Experimental Orthopaedics, Saarland University, Germany. His clinical interests include sports medicine, arthroplasty, and traumatology. His research focuses on joint preservation and orthobiologics.
Dr. Gao studied Medicine in China and Germany with intensive fellowship training in both Asia and Europe. He completed the orthopaedic residency training at Peking University Medical Center, China and received the ECFMG certificate. Moreover, he obtained his master of science degree from Heidelberg University, Germany and his doctorate summa cum laude from Saarland University, Germany.
Dr. Gao is the Member of the Basic Science Committee of International Cartilage Regeneration & Joint Preservation Society (ICRS), the Member of the Young Investigator Committee of Osteoarthritis Research Society International (OARSI), and the Founding Member of the Sino Euro Orthopaedics Society (SEOS).

PhD = cloning and characterizing potential vaccine antigens from schistosomes; first postdoc = fine details of HIV replication (with David Harrich); second postdoc = best ignored; third postdoc = role of Max network, especially Mnt, in cancer and development (with Peter Hurlin). After that I made HIV POC tests and other diagnostic devices in two small biotech companies. Now I'm a research manager with Canon US Life Sci.
