Paula Mabee

Professor of Biology, University of South Dakota; Past President, Society of Systematic Biologists; Elected Fellow, AAAS.

Robie W Macdonald

I am a biogeochemist who studies aquatic pathways. These include predominantly the freshwater cycle in arctic seas, carbon cycles in arctic seas and in the coastal North Pacific Ocean, and contaminant pathways in the Arctic and Pacific Oceans and in lakes. I am especially interested in routes of entry (rivers, coastal erosion), pathways of transport (particle flux), burial in marine sediments and what climate change does to these pathways.

Barbara J MacGregor

Research Asst. Professor, Marine Sciences, Univ. of North Carolina - Chapel Hill (2003-2017); Postdoctoral fellow, MPI – Marine Microbiology, Bremen, Germany (2000-2003); Research assistant and postdoctoral associate, Civil Engineering Dept., Northwestern University, Evanston, Ill. (1994-1999); PhD, Bacteriology, University of Wisconsin - Madison (1994); BS (1984) and MS (1986), Biology and Marine Microbiology, University of Massachusetts - Boston.

Research projects include: new methods to directly link species identity with carbon source utilization; direct profiling of microbial communities without PCR; direct detection of microbial enzymes in environmental samples.

Stephen L Macknik

Stephen L. Macknik trained as a postdoc with Zachary Mainen at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, and David Hubel at Harvard Medical School. He has a BA in Psychobiology, Biology and Psychology from the Univ of California, Santa Cruz, and a PhD in Neurobiology from Harvard Univ, with Margaret Livingstone. His research seeks to understand the neural underpinnings of visual awareness and attention, and the neural consequences of cerebral blood flow in the healthy brain and in neurological disorders.

Vicky E MacRae

BBSRC Institute Career Path Fellow and Senior Lecturer at The Roslin Institute, University of Edinburgh. My group presently investigates several inter-related research themes in bone formation and vascular calcification.

Laura Maggi

She graduated in Biological Science and achieved the PhD at the University of Rome "Sapienza". She trained as a post doc with Enrico Cherubini at SISSA, and with Cornelius Gross at EMBL. She is Assistant Professor at the University of Rome "Sapienza”. The main projects of her lab are devoted to the study of long-term changes of neural activity in hippocampal slice as result of glia-neuron interactions and environmental stimulation, using electrophysiological and molecular techniques.

He started his scientific research career in the year 1984 at the CSIR-Indian Institute of Chemical Technology, Hyderabad, where he now holds a Chief Scientist and Head of Inorganic and Physical Chemistry division position. He has been a visiting scientist or an award fellow at the Institute of Catalysis, Novosibrisk, Russia (1986-87), Institute of Physical Chemistry, LMU, Munich, Germany (1988-89 and 1998-99), State University of New York, Buffalo, USA (1993-94), Texas A&M University, College Station, USA (1994-95), AIST, Osaka, Japan (2001), Institute for Research on Catalysis, Lyon, France (2001, 2003, and 2005), Inha University, Incheon, South Korea (2007-08), Ruhr University Bochum, Germany (2005, 2010, and 2012), Paul Scherrer Institute, Villigen, Switzerland (2013 and 2014), and RMIT University, Melbourne, Australia (2013).

He has guided 35 Ph D and 50 M Sc/M Tech/B Tech students for their degrees. He has more than 290 research publications (h-index 52) in high quality international and national journals and holds 8 patents to his credit. His papers have been cited more than 9300 times

Ian J Majewski

My research group is working to identify genetic mutations that contribute to the development of leukaemia, and studying how these mutations influence a patient’s response to therapy. The cancer landscape is both complex and dynamic and we're using genomic approaches to study how cancer cells evolve in response to treatment.
