Dr. Eric B. Bauman is an award-winning educational designer and author, and proven researcher who promotes the integration of innovative educational technology for clinical teaching and learning within the health sciences. He is best known for his analysis and synthesis of contemporary pedagogy that supports the integration of innovative technology such simulation, VR/AR/XR, game-based teaching and learning across the health sciences. Dr. Bauman's portfolio has been widely published and disseminated through peer reviewed journals, textbooks and conference proceedings. He has presented and/or facilitated well over 100 venues, including the White House and National Academies of Science.
Curator (research professor) in the Integrative Research Center, Field Museum of Natural History, Chicago and Member of the Committee on Evolutionary Biology, University of Chicago
Research interests include evolutionary systematics, biogeography, comparative morphology, and taxonomy, with special focus on marine Mollusca, especially Gastropoda and Bivalvia. As a “museum person,” he is particularly interested in the development and application of organismal, collections-based research, ranging from extensive new field surveys and large-scale specimen and data management issues, to the integration of morphological, paleontological, and molecular data to address biological research questions. He recently served as lead PI of the Bivalve Assembling-the-Tree-of-Life (BivAToL.org) effort and is involved in coral reef restoration projects and associated invertebrate surveys in the Florida Keys. Past offices include service as president of the American Malacological Society and of the International Society of Malacology (Unitas), and he currently is a chief editor in the MolluscaBase.org effort.
INSERM Tenured Researcher in the field of Cardiovascular Research, currently focusing on therapeutic angiogenesis with polymer-based targeted growth factor delivery.

Senior research scientist working at the Regional Centre for Applied Molecular Oncology (RECAMO) at the Masaryk Memorial Cancer Institute, Brno, Czech Republic. BSc in Biochemistry at the University of Manchester, UK: PhD in Medicine/Biochemistry at the University of London (St Bartholomew's Hospital, London, UK) and has worked in the Departments of Pathology at Bart's, St Thomas's Hospital and the University of Dundee, UK. Also worked at the MRC Radiobiology unit, Oxford, UK. Has a long-standing interest in developing and applying molecular biology techniques to diagnostic histopathology samples. Current research interests include studies of the p53 family in human cancers and the regulation of cell proliferation and survival in cancer.
Associate Professor in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Group leader (Developmental Biology and Stem Cells Department), IGBMC, France. Member of the Institut Universitaire de France.
I am an invertebrate embryologist, and my main areas of interest are different topics of sponges regeneration, embryonic, postembryonic development and the evolution of sponge’s morphogenesis. I'm also interested in the sponge’s biodiversity, taxonomy and phylogeny. I am currently a Senior Researcher at French National Centre for Scientific Research in Marseille and Professor in St-Petersburg State University in Russia
Dr. Carlos Eurico Fernandes is Professor within the Experimental Pathology Laboratory at the Institute of Biosciences, Federal University of Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil.
His research within the Experimental Pathology Laboratory focuses on descriptive and functional histology, with an emphasis on biometric, histological, histopathological and histomorphometric analyses, having fish and anurans as experimental models.
