|Prof. dr. Dušica Vujaklija, PhD., Chorvátsko|
|Názov príspevku: Streptomyces: Twisted bacteria in nature and biotechnology|
Dušica Vujaklija works at the Ruđer Bošković Institute in Zagreb, Croatia (http://www.irb.hr/eng/People/Dusica-Vujaklija).Currently her research group is investigating the functions, interactions and temporal expression of genes important for DNA metabolism and chromosome segregation during the reproductive phase. In addition they are investigating an unusual class of lipolytic enzymes produced by streptomycetes and other Actinobacteria from various ecological niches. Dušica Vujaklija is also co-director of the international John Innes- Ruđer Bošković Summer Schools in Applied Molecular Microbiology organized every second year in Dubrovnik. These Schools, concentrating on the chemistry, biology and applications of microbial natural products, have earned an excellent reputation over the last 10 years and have been extremely well received by the participants who came from many different countries (http://www.jic.ac.uk/science/molmicro/summerschool/).

|Antonio Martínez-Murcia (B.Sc. Biochemist/Molecular Biologist, Valencia University 1987; Ph.D. Microbiology, Reading University, UK, 1993), professor of microbiology (Molecular Pathogenicity and Vaccines) at the University “Miguel Hernandez”, Orihuela, Alicante, where also was promoter and director of the “Unidad de Diagnóstico Molecular” (2001). He counts with 30 years’ experience in genetic analysis applied to bacterial phylogeny, evolution, taxonomy, typing, identification and molecular microbial ecology. He has participated in over 30 national and international financed projects, including "C.L.E.A.N." Coastal Lagoon Eutrophication and Anaerobic Processes, European Community Environment Research Program (1992- 1995), AQUACHIP FP5 (2001-2003), CLINICALAIR EUREKA 3350/F1172 2005- 2006, HEALTHY-WATER FP6 (2006-2009), AQUAVALENS-FP7 (2013-2018), and ARREST-TB (2019-2020) on the development of diagnostic methods for Tuberculosis. He is co-author of > 80 papers in peer-reviewed journals and book chapters, a patented PCR method (1994), co-director of 8 doctoral theses, and has described 15 new bacterial species. He is an active member of the “Aeromonas Working-group” of the “International Sub-Committee on Vibrionaceae, Aeromonadaceae, and related genera” (International Committee on Systematics of Prokariotes). He is the promoter and current director of GENETIC ANALYSIS STRATEGIES SL, developing qPCR assays for > 300 different pathogens of interest in veterinary, food, water, and clinical environment. Several biotech entrepreneur activities and innovations were awarded in 2002, 2012, and 2015|
|RNDr. Boris Klempa, DrSc., Slovensko|
|Názov príspevku: Hantaviruses: a story of (not only) mice and men|
|Boris Klempa is a head of Department of Virus Ecology at the Institute of Virology of the Biomedical Research Center of the Slovak Academy of Sciences in Bratislava, Slovakia. His main field of interest are zoonotic RNA viruses. He is mostly focused on molecular evolution of hantaviruses and other rodent-borne viruses as well as transmission mechanisms of tick-borne viruses. He is also one of the founding members of the European Virus Archive, European infrastructural initiative with a mission to stimulate virological research and increase preparedness against virus diseases.|
