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.
Assistant Professor of Biological Sciences at Louisiana State University and Research Associate as the LSU Museum of Natural Sciences. Research interests include population and evolutionary genomics of non-model organisms; community genomics; genotype-phenotype interactions; (immuno-)genetic basis of mate choice; mating behavior; social behavior; and natural history.
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.
By using stable isotope labelling and natural abundance approaches, I conduct research to:
1) explore how forest ecosystems respond to global environmental changes, e.g., N deposition and global warming;
2) reveal tree growth and N cycling in the past 200 years;
3) quantify nitrogenous gas losses and the contribution of microbial processes from terrestrial ecosystems soils;
4) examine plants plasticity and link them to plant biodiversity.
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.
Karoline Faust is a biologist turned bioinformatician who graduated at the Humboldt University in Berlin and earned her PhD at the Université Libre de Bruxelles under the supervision of Prof. van Helden. She worked as a postdoctoral researcher at KU Leuven and VIB in the group of Prof. Raes. Recently, she started as an Assistant Professor at KU Leuven. Being interested in the analysis of microbial sequencing data and modelling of microbial communities, her work is situated at the intersection of bioinformatics, systems biology and microbial ecology.
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.
I joined Penn’s biostatistics in August 2009 after receiving my PhD in biostatistics from Yale University and working as a faculty in the Department of Biostatistics at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. My research interests focus on methodologies and applications in clinical and genetic studies.
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.
