His research interests are centered in chemical virology, the use of small chemical probes to interrogate virus-infected cells to identify factors required for viral replication and leads toward the development of new antiviral drugs. His group discovered the first lipid-targeting antiviral compounds and spearheaded the study of chromatin dynamics and epigenetics in lytic HSV infections, playing a critical role in our current understanding of the roles of chromatin as an antiviral innate cellular defense. Previously, Dr. Schang had identified the roles of the cellular cyclin-dependent kinases in viral replication and pathogenesis, and championed the use of inhibitors of cellular protein kinases against virus-induced cancers. He has been continuously funded by Canadian and American sources since 2001. Dr. Schang has published 60 original research, review or editorial articles or book chapters and holds four issued patents on novel antivirals.

Ezio Ricca, biographical note

Ezio RiccaEzio Ricca is a professor of Microbiology of the Federico II University of Naples (Italy). As a student of the University of Naples, he worked for his Thesis at the International Institute of Genetic and Biophysics (IIGB) of Naples under the supervision of Prof. M. De Felice on the molecular characterization of Escherichia coli mutants altered in the biosynthesis of branched-chains amino acids. After that Ezio spent more than two years as a post-doctoral fellow in the laboratory of Prof. J.M. Calvo at the Department of Biochemistry and Cell Biology of the Cornell University, Ithaca, NY (US). At Cornell Ezio worked on the transcriptional regulation of the ilvIH operon of Escherichia coli and Salmonella typhimurium identifying and characterizing Lrp, a global regulator of metabolism in enterobacteria. From 1990 Ezio became interested in gram-positive spore forming bacteria and spent two years in the laboratory of Prof. R. Losick at the Department of Cellular and Developmental Biology of the Harvard University, Cambridge, MA (US). At Harvard Ezio worked on the activation of sigmaK, a sporulation-specific sigma factor of the RNA polymerase, on the characterization of the sporulation gene spoVM and on the identification of CotG, an abundant component of the spore surface. Since Ezio return to Italy at the Federico II University of Naples, his research interests have been focused on the study of the bacterial spore surface and on the use of spores as a biotechnological tool. In particular, Ezio developed the use of the spore as a mucosal delivery system and as a probiotic agent. More recently, Ezio became also interested in the study of the interactions between commensal bacteria and intestinal cells and in the effects of bacteria and bacterial molecules on the composition of the gut microbiota. Since 2003 Ezio Ricca is in the Editorial board of FEMS Microbiol Lett, and is in the Organizing Committee of the “European Spores Conference” (Bratislava, Slovakia, 2004 and 2006; Napoli, Italy, 2008; Cortona, Italy, 2010; Egham, UK, 2012 and 2014).

Jarosław Korczyński, biographical note

Jarosław KorczyńskiSince childhood I was interested in biology and generally nature. I followed my interests during my education process and finally graduated biology with honors at Jagiellonian University in Cracow, Poland. There, for the first time, I have become acquainted with the fascinating world of microscopy experiments. Continuing my fascination with biology I began PhD studies at the Nencki Institute of Experimental Biology in Warsaw, Poland, where I investigated signaling pathways which regulate actin cytoskeleton dynamics in glioma C6 cells and astrocytes, using both biochemical and confocal microscopy techniques. There I met with a different type of fluorescent experiments like 3D visualization, FRET and FRAP techniques, STED microscopy, Calcium measurement and live cell imaging. Now, since July of this year, I’m working as an application specialist in KAWA.SKA Company – distributor of microscopy equipment in Poland.

Florian Hollfelder, biographical note

Florian HollfelderFlorian Hollfelder was educated at the Technical University of Berlin (Diplom-Chemiker) and Cambridge University (MPhil). After a formative stay at Stanford (with Dan Herschlag) on free-energy relationships in enzymes, he joined Tony Kirby’s group at the Chemistry Department of Cambridge University working on enzyme models and physical-organic chemistry. During his PhD he also collaborated with Dan Tawfik (on the mechanism and evaluation of model enzymes such as catalytic antibodies). His postdoctoral work at Harvard Medical School (with Chris T. Walsh) was concerned with the biosynthesis and action of the natural antibiotic microcin B17. In 2001 he returned to Cambridge to start his own research group in the Biochemistry Department. The group’s research centers around quantitative and mechanistic questions at the chemistry/biology interface, involving low- and high-throughput approaches. Florian is Director of Studies and Graduate Mentor at Trinity Hall. He was coordinator of several EU-funded trans-national collaborative initiatives, e.g. the EU New and Emerging Science and Technology project MiFem on biological experiments in microdroplet reactors, and Marie-Curie networks on directed evolution of functional proteins (ENDIRPRO, ENEFP), on protein-protein interactions (ProSA) and on biological phosphates (PhosChemRec).
