Dr. Pant received his M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in Physics from Agra University, Agra, India. His postdoctoral studies were conducted on the mechanisms of electron and ion transport in model membrane systems at the Department of Biophysics at Michigan State University. He joined the Laboratory of Neurobiology in the NIMH as a senior staff fellow in 1974 with Dr. Ichiji Tasaki where he studied the function of the axonal cytoskeleton in the squid giant axon. In 1979 he moved to the NIAAA extending his studies on the neuronal cytoskeleton and the effects of alcohol on its regulation. Dr. Pant moved to the NINDS, Laboratory of Neurochemistry in 1987 where he is presently chief of the section on Cytoskeleton Regulation. His laboratory is studying the mechanisms of topographic regulation of neuronal cytoskeleton proteins by post-translational modification, including the role of kinase cascades in normal brain and during neurodegeneration.
Panteleimon Giannakopoulos was born in 1965 in Greece. He obtained his MD degree in the University of Athens in 1989 before completing a full training on psychiatry and psychotherapy in London (Maudsley Hospital and Geneva) as well as postdoc training in Paris (La Pitié-Sâlpetrière Hospital, Federation of Neurology). In 1998, aged 33 years, he has been appointed as associate professor and medical head of the Division of Geriatric Psychiatry of the University Hospitals of Geneva. Later on (2004) he obtained the position of full tenured professor of Psychiatry in the University of Geneva. From 2003 to 2011, he also assumed a parallel position of full professor of Old Age Psychiatry in the University of Lausanne in order to promote the academic careers of junior staff locally. He has been Chairman of the Department of Mental Health and Psychiatry in Geneva for ten years (2005-2015) and vice dean of the Faculty of Medicine in the University of Geneva in charge of postgraduate and continuous education (2003-2011). From December 1st 2015, he is the medical head of the forensic psychiatry development in Geneva country. Specialist of Alzheimer disease research, he published more than 240 peer-reviewed articles in the field of neurobiology of aging with particular focus on predictive biomarkers of cognitive decline.
Prof. Harry Steinbusch is appointed as Professor in Cellular Neuroscience, past-director of the School for Mental Health and Neuroscience, Founding Director of the European Graduate School for Neuroscience at Maastricht University and President-Elect of the Neurotoxicity Society. Recently he is appointed as Fellow of the Indian Society for Neurosciences, as Adjunctive Professor at Ajou University in Korea, Honorary Professor at Colombo University, Sri Lanka. He is the founding editor of the Journal of Chemical Neuroanatomy. His research is focussed on neurodevelopmental influences towards depression and neurodegenerative diseases studied in animal models. This implies combining a broad range of techniques, i.e. molecular neurobiology, quantitative neuromorphology, animal behavior and epigenetics. He has thus far guided 105 Ph.D. students. He has been involved as the director of the travel IBRO program. He was twice coordinator of a Marie Curie Early Stage Training site. His current Hirsch factor is 83; publications: 475; citations without self-citations: 29,613

Dr. Karindas is the President of The World Academy of Medical Sciences, where he has been serving for more than two decades now. Having extensive experience as a research scientist in Clinical and Molecular Oncology, he is the holder of landmark theories including the "Multicellular Origin of Cancer" and "Oncogenetic Evolution" as well as the OCAT and ECE theories. He is also the creator and writer of the KGS, the “Karindas Grading System”, the all-encompassing universal paradigm of tumor grading and a new integral method of clinical management in oncology. Having his main research interests in "Oncogenesis", "Metastasis", "Cancer Stem Cells", "Tumor Cell Biology", "Molecular Oncopathology", "Cell Signaling", "Signal Transduction", "Extracellular Matrix" and the "Origin and Evolution of Cancer", he is currently busy working on the creation and establishment of a new medical algorithmic system which will universally be used in oncology and all other fields of medicine.
Prof. Dr. Shahid Hussain Sheikh, M.D., Ph.D. Neurology. He served in various medical research positions at the Univ. of WA Med. Cntr. from 1982 to 1992. Asso. Prof. of clinical Physiology at the American College of Prof. Edu. and Med. Cntr, as a Research Scientist/ faculty in the clinical Research. Since 2004, pioneered unveiling the secrets of Nucleopathy, instigated by the Neuro-invasive viral genomic proliferation of the functional Neurons by furthering the AFM based nano biological research of Dr. Edward Wagoner group at UCI. The "Sheikh's Syndrome" defined in 2006 having established the pathophysiology of many diseases emerging from the nuclei of the infected neurons, have substantiated the term Nucleopathy. Prof Sheikh has successfully found the viral link and cured the IBS, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Hypertension, and 48 other diseases. He is the world's leading researcher that has now established a possibility of a better quality of life for all.
Sevinj Hamidova is currently working as a managing director of Medical Tourism in Azerbaijan. She graduated with MD from Azerbaijan Medical University in 2009. She then completed Internship in City Clinical Hospital in Baku and has now worked for over 6 years as a Neurologist at several hospital settings.
