M.D., Ph.D. He has a deep knowledge of and experience in electrophysiology in monkeys (single neurons recordings) and humans (transcranial magnetic stimulation, study of spinal excitability and brain imaging). His current research include the study of the relationships between action and language and the realization of brain-computer interfaces specifically designed for human use.
PhD in Cell Biology from the Biozentrum, University of Basel. Postdoctoral stays at the EMBL Heidelberg and the Biozentrum Basel. Group leader at the Biozentrum Basel (2003-2009), since 2009 Professor at the ULB. Research interest: nuclear pore complexes and nucleocytoplasmic transport; the role of nuclear pore proteins beyond nucleocytoplasmic transport; epigenetic regulation of cell death in yeast. Editorial board member: Microbial Cell; Cells.
Since completing my Ph.D. in Italy in Psychology my research interests have centered on Memory and Aging, emotion and cognition, binding and Source monitoring. I am currently a researcher at the University of Chieti, Italy where I teach Cognitive Psychology and Psychology of memory and aging.
Dr. Farke received a B.Sc. in Geology from the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology in 2003, and completed his Ph.D. in Anatomical Sciences at Stony Brook University in 2008. He joined the staff at the Raymond M. Alf Museum of Paleontology in June 2008, as Augustyn Family Curator of Paleontology.
Dr. Felber received her Ph.D. in molecular biology from the University of Bern, Switzerland. After carrying out postdoctoral studies in the Laboratory of Biochemistry, NCI, she joined the Molecular Mechanisms of Carcinogenesis Laboratory, ABL-Basic Research Program, in 1985. In 1990, Dr. Felber established the Human Retrovirus Pathogenesis Group. In 1998, Dr. Felber received her tenure appointment and, in 1999, she joined the Center for Cancer Research, NCI.
Graduated in toxicology at the University of Lausanne, then trained at the Occupational Health Science Institute and at the Swiss Experimental Cancer Institute, and at the National Cancer Institute, USA. Main interest is cancer-related inflammation with special focus on mesothelioma. Principal investigator of translational research projects for the treatment of patients with mesothelioma, and non-clinical studies, which aim at a better understanding of the biology of mesothelioma development.
I have been developing and applying statistical models and algorithms in genetics and genomics for more than 10 years. I have contributed both methodological and applied work in family-base studies, copy number variation analysis, genome-wide association studies, and next generation sequence data analysis.
Early studies (Oxford University) on DNA damage, DNA repair, mutagenesis in yeast. Current 50% Auckland Cancer Society Research Centre, Mutagenicity testing to predict carcinogenesis, 50% Discipline of Nutrition and Dietetics, The University of Auckland. Studies gene-diet interactions in the development of chronic disease (e.g. Inflammatory Bowel Disease, prostate cancer). 2004-2014, Programme leader of Nutrigenomics New Zealand, bringing nutrigenomics tools to food development in New Zealand.
Professor in Genomics and Molecular Biology. My main research interests are antimicrobial peptides, microRNAs and the epigenetic regulation of myogenic gene networks by environmental factors, such as temperature and photoperiod. Recipient of the “outstanding young investigator award” from the Research Council of Norway in 2008. Founder of the Genomics in Aquaculture biennial symposium. Academic editor of Marine Genomics, Fisheries Science and Acta Histochemica.
Associate Professor of Faculty of Medicine/University of Porto (UNIFAI/CINTESIS Researcher). Teaching PhD Mental Health, Gerontology/Geriatrics. Psychiatrist in CHSJ and Family Therapist (Portugal). Past President Portuguese Association Gerontopsychiatry(2009-12), Board of Directors of: International Psychogeriatric Association(2011-14), Dementia Cerebral Aging Group Study(2008-10), Portuguese Society Family Therapy(1997-2000;2000-03), International Family Therapy Association(2009-12;2012-15).
Professor of Human Physiology, I'm a systems neuroscientist and neurologist by training. My current researches include the study of the cognitive aspects of motor control and the neural correlates of hierarchical learning in human and non-human primates. I'm also interested to multidimensional signal analysis and to the progress of neurotechnologies for developing innovative brain-computer interfaces.
Prof. Marcelo Ferreira is a medical parasitologist with over 20-year experience in field-oriented and laboratory research. He graduated in Medicine from the University of São Paulo, Brazil (1988), where he was trained in Internal Medicine (1999-2004) and obtained his MSc (1993) and PhD (1997) degrees. Further research training was obtained in Japan (Nagoya University, 1995-97) and the United States (Harvard University, 2005-06). He teaches medical parasitology at the University of São Paulo since 1990 and currently serves as a member of the Technical Advisory Committee on Malaria of the Pan-American Health Organization.
