He has been the Organizer of numerous Meetings including the World Conferences on Liquid Crystals (1992), the Biodegradable Polymers & Plastics (2002), the Gordon Research Conference (GRC) “On Biodegradable Polymers”(1997), and of two Symposia of the American Chemical Society (ACS) on “Bio-active Polymers”(2000) and on “The Synthesis & Detection Property/Structure Relationship in Polysaccharides”(2007). He has been and he is still today in charge of research contracts financed by Industries and by the European Community. He has been the Founder and President of the Doctorate Course in Biomaterials of the Doctorate School in Biological and Molecular Sciences “BIOS” at the University of Pisa-Italy. He has been the Founder and Director of the Interdisciplinary Laboratory of Bioactive Polymeric Materials for Biomedical and Environmental Applications where researchers have operated, who had competences in Materials Science and Technology, Organic Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Materials Science, Pharmaceutical Technologies, Microbiology and Environmental Chemistry. He has been among the promoters of the foundation of the “Inter-university National Consortium of Materials Science & Technology (INSTM)” (1992), of which he is honored to serve yet as Member of the Scientific Council.

Anton V. Dolzhenko received his degree (with Distinction) in Pharmacy in 2000 and then a Ph.D. degree in Medicinal Chemistry in 2004, both from the Perm State Pharmaceutical Academy (Russia). After that, he joined the Pharmacy Department of the National University of Singapore and worked there for 6 years before he moved to the School of Pharmacy, Curtin University (Australia) in 2010 and continued his academic career as a Senior Lecturer. In 2013, he joined the School of Pharmacy, Monash University Malaysia working as an Associate Professor and Director of the NMR Campus Infrastructure Platform. His current research interests include synthetic and structural aspects of the chemistry of nitrogen heterocycles. He has been actively working on the development of new synthetic methods for the preparation of potentially bioactive compounds. His publications in form of more than 100 journal papers and book chapters received more than 1,000 citations.

My broad research interests are in the areas of proteomics, a subset of the ‘Omics Technology’. My publications so far mainly related in utilizing proteomics technology in studying samples composed of protein such as snake venom, jellyfish toxin, bull semen, prawn hemolymph, mice or rat serums, plant extracts etc. The technologies involved either the bottom-up type of proteomics i.e two-dimensional electrophoresis combined with mass spectrometry to characterize complex protein mixtures or the 2DE guided purification application to isolate useful protein.
Takashiro AKITSU, Ph.D. is a full Professor for the Department of Chemistry, Faculty of Science Division II at Tokyo University of Science. He completed his undergraduate school training (chemistry) from Osaka University, Japan and his graduate school training (physical & inorganic chemistry, especially coordination, crystal, and bioinorganic chemistry) from Osaka University (Ph.D. 2000). After Keio University and Stanford University, He moved to the current affiliation since 2008. Dr. Akitsu has published up to about 180 articles in peer-reviewed journals and has had posters presented at international level. He has been a peer reviewer of many journals and acted as an organizing committee of several international conferences.
