Plenary lecturers:

Prof. Boris Maček, Proteome Center Tübingen, Eberhard Karl University of Tübingen, Germany

Boris MacekBoris Macek received M.Sc. in Molecular Biology at the University of Zagreb (Croatia) and Ph.D. in Biology at the University of Muenster (Germany). He pursued his postdoctoral research in quantitative proteomics with Matthias Mann at the University of Southern Denmark and Max-Planck-Institute of Biochemistry in Martinsried (Germany), where he was involved in early applications of Orbitrap mass spectrometry in analysis of eukaryotic and prokaryotic signal transduction. Since 2008 he is Professor of Quantitative Proteomics at the University of Tuebingen (Germany) and Director of the Proteome Center Tuebingen. His current research interests involve proteogenomics, mitochondrial proteomics and analysis of regulatory networks involved in regulation of bacterial persistence. He co-authored about 180 peer-reviewed articles in the field of shotgun proteomics and biological signal transduction.

Prof. Richard Burchmore, Glasgow Polyomics, University of Glasgow, UK

Richard J.S. BurchmoreRichard J.S. Burchmore received B.Sc. in Parasitology at the University of London in 1989, and Ph. D. at School of Life Sciences, King’s College London in 1993. He was a postdoctoral fellow at Oregon Health Sciences University, St George's Hospital Medical School and University of Glasgow. In 2003 he moved to Sir Henry Wellcome Functional Genomics Facility (University of Glasgow) as Senior RA (2003-2006). Currently he is Senior Lecturer and Head of Proteomics at Glasgow Polyomics. His research is focused on understanding the mechanisms by which pathogens thrive in the challenging environments which they encounter. He was an early adopter of mass spectrometry for proteomics and metabolomics and, over 20 years, he has been instrumental in establishing both these research areas at the University of Glasgow. His group was among the first to apply proteomic approaches to Leishmania and to other parasites. With colleagues in Glasgow, he pioneered the use of orbitrap mass spectrometry for untargeted metabolomic analyses. In collaboration with many colleagues across the world, he has applied mass spectrometry to address diverse questions, from animal nutrition to archaeology. He has published over 150 papers and he has supervised more than 30 PhD students.
