Henry M. Sobell completed his studies at Brooklyn Technical High School (19481952), Columbia College (1952-1956), and the University of Virginia School of Medicine (1956-1960). Instead of practicing clinical medicine, he then went to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) to join Professor Alexander Rich in the Department of Biology (1960-1965), where, as a Helen Hay Whitney Postdoctoral Fellow, he learned the technique of single crystal X-ray analysis. He then joined the Chemistry Department at the University of Rochester, having been subsequently jointly appointed to both the Chemistry and Molecular Biophysics departments (the latter at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry), becoming a full tenured Professor in both departments (1965-1993). He is now retired and living in the Adirondacks in New York, USA.
Dimitrios H. Roukos, MD, PhD, is Professor of Surgery - Precision Cancer Medicine and Founding director of "Centre for Biosystems and Genome Network Medicine" in the Ioannina University, School of Medicine. Assessing the unmet needs of traditional linear single - gene research, he has shifted to intrapatient comprehensive coding and non-coding genomic and regulatory network heterogeneity in time and space towards the achievement of Precision Cancer Medicine. He has published > 240 PubMed papers, 32 on Precision Medicine and Oncology, and 44 on static and spatiotemporal genome analysis with NGS. These publications have received more than 8756 citations with h-index: 73 (Scopus). He is reviewer in many high impact journals including some with impact factor (IF) >30, evaluator in innovative research projects (EU, France, Belgium, Luxemburg, Poland), member in the editorial board of 25 international journals with IF, and Organizing Committee member in >20 International Conferences.
Dr. Gusarov received his Ph.D. in Quantum Mechanics of molecular systems from the Saint Petersburg State University in 1999. After completion of his degree, he was appointed as a Faculty Fellow in the Department of Physics (Fock Institute of Physics, SPb University). In 2000 he got a visiting fellowship from Swedish Institute to study in Sweden. In the Fall of 2001, Dr. Gusarov joined the Department of Theoretical Chemistry at Lund University (Sweden) as a postdoctoral fellow. In 2004, he moved to Edmonton to join the National Research Council of Canada (National Institute of Nanotechnology). From August 2015, he was appointed as Senior Research Officer and Group Leader in 2016 at NRC-Nano Research Center.
Dr. Gusarov specializes in the modeling and simulations of nano- and biosystems in the environment. The success of future applications in a high-tech industry requires a deep understanding of fundamental mechanisms on different levels of description and their communication. That could be provided only by an appropriate combination of experimental study with predictive theoretical modeling. Multi-scale modeling and simulation in this regard provide a most appropriate solution which allows to describe a complex system in a very efficient way. Currently, Dr. Gusarov is working on computational simulation of hybrid organic-inorganic perovskites for photovoltaic applications. Another direction of his research is the modeling of new drug delivery system based on smart polymers. Expertise
