Dr Martin Daumer: Director of the SLCMSR e.v. - The Human Motion Institute in Munich and managing director of the IT company, Trium Analysis Online GmbH. He is also visiting lecturer for Telemedicine and Clinical Applications of Computational Medicine at the Technical University Munich.
Dr Daumer received a diploma in Physics in 1990 and a Ph.D. in mathematics from the Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich in 1995, after having worked at CERN, Switzerland, and Rutgers University, USA.
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.
I am Assistant Professor of Soil and Plant Community Restoration in OSU's School of Environment and Natural Resources. My research focuses on developing methods for the restoration and management of ecosystem properties and functions including vegetation community composition, habitat structure, fire regimes and carbon and nutrient cycling. Current research sites include temperate, semi-arid and tropical ecosystems.
Josh is a clinician researcher, and divides his time between clinical work as an Infectious Diseases physician in Newcastle, and research work as a principal research fellow based at Menzies.
He completed his clinical infectious diseases training in 2004, and then worked on a PhD from 2007-2010 on the epidemiology, pathophysiology and adjunctive treatment of sepsis in the Top End of the Northern Territory (NT).
His main clinical interests are general infectious diseases, viral hepatitis, hepatology, HIV infection, refugee health and infections in the critical care setting. His main research interests are clinical trials in the management of severe infections and epidemiology of severe bacterial infections.
Josh is the vice president of the Australasian Society for Infectious Diseases (ASID) and is also the deputy chair of the ASID clinical research network. In 2015, Josh was awarded a prestigious career development fellowship from the NHMRC and also a $1 million project grant to conduct a randomised controlled trial investigating the use of combination antibiotic therapy for MRSA blood stream infection (the CAMERA study).
Dr Melissa Davis is a computational biologist and Laboratory Head in the Bioinformatics Division of the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research. Her background is in genetics and computational cell biology with expertise in the analysis of genome-scale molecular networks, systems biology, and knowledge-based modelling of regulatory networks.
In 2014, Melissa was awarded a four year National Breast Cancer Foundation Career Development Fellowship, and took up a position as Senior Research Fellow in Computational Systems Biology at the University of Melbourne, before moving to the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute for Medical Research as a Laboratory Head in 2016. Melissa specialises in the integration of genomic, transcriptomic, and proteomic data with knowledge-based network models to understand the regulatory logic of mammalian systems.
