Boris Rubinsky

Professor at UC Berkeley since 1980. Resides in the Department of Mechanical Engineering. Research in biomedical engineering.

Dr. Rubinsky's research interests include:
Heat and mass transfer in biomedical engineering and biotechnology in particular low temperature biology, bio-electronics and biomedical devices in particular micro and nano bionic technologies and electroporation, medical imaging in particular electrical impedance tomography and light imaging, biomedical numerical analysis in particular genetic and evolutionary algorithms and fractal techniques.

Ana M Soto

Research interests: cell proliferation, breast and prostate cancer, endocrine disruptors. In collaboration with Dr. Sonnenschein she proposed the tissue organization field theory, which posits that cancer is a problem of tissue organization and that the default state of metazoan cells, like that of unicellular organisms, is proliferation. She also works on the clarification of epistemological issues arising from the study of complex biological phenomena.

Shi-Cong Tao

Shanghai Jiao Tong University Affiliated Sixth People’s Hospital.

Current research interests include extracellular vesicles, micro‐ and nano‐biomaterials, regenerative medicine, and tissue engineering.

A senior member of the International Society For Extracellular Vesicles (ISEV), an international member of American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS), a member of American Society for Bone and Mineral Research (ASBMR), a member of American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), a member of International Society for Cellular Therapy (ISCT), and a member of International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR).

Walter M. van Gulik

Assistant Professor, Department of Biotechnology, Delft University of Technology, Delft, The Netherlands.

Our research is focused on obtaining a quantitative understanding of the functioning of industrial microorganisms under the harsh dynamic conditions of the large scale industrial bioreactor. To achieve this we apply both computational and experimental tools.

My group has obtained an excellent reputation within the field of metabolic systems engineering in the international scientific community, combining both theory and experimentation. Especially with respect to quantitative metabolomics and the development of experimental and theoretical tools for the unravelling of in-vivo metabolic regulation of microbial cells.

Robert Winkler

Robert Winkler is Principal Investigator of the Laboratory of Biochemical and Instrumental Analysis at the CINVESTAV Unidad Irapuato and faculty member for the postgraduate programs Plant Biotechnology and Integrative Biology. His research topics include novel mass spectrometry techniques such as low-temperature plasma ionization and covalent protein staining, new approaches in the high-throughput metabolomic profiling of plants, computational mass spectrometry and proteomics.

Wei Yang

Researcher at Bloodworks Research Institute and UW Medicine, University of Washington. Current work mainly focuses on zwitterionic-based surface coatings for long-term biomedical applications.

Mark T Young

Dr Mark Young received his BSc (Hons) in Zoology from the University of Edinburgh in 2005, and his MSc (distinction) in Advanced Methods in Taxonomy and Biodiversity from Imperial College London in 2006. Mark completed his PhD in Earth Science from the University of Bristol, in collaboration with the Natural History Museum London in 2009.
Currently, Mark is a post-doctoral researcher at the School of GeoSciences at the University of Edinburgh. Specialising in the taxonomy, biomechanics, anatomy, and phylogeny of crocodylomorphs and marine reptiles. His current work is focused on the land-to-sea transition of marine crocodylomorphs - examining their palaeoneuroanatomy and sensory systems. Two additional active research areas are: (1) the crocodylomorph SuperMatrix Project, and (2) the fossils of Scotland.

Amir A. Zadpoor

Amir Zadpoor studied Biomed Eng for his MSc and obtained his PhD (cum laude) from Delft Univ. Tech. He joined the Dept. Biomech. Eng. to work in the area of tissue biomechanics and implants in 2010 and started a research lab focusing on biomaterials, orthopedics, and biomechanics of tissues and implants. Amir is on the review and editorial board of several journals and has published many peer-reviewed article. He recently received the prestigious ERC and Veni personal grants.
