A. Bravin download abstract
Alberto Bravin got a PhD in Physics at the University of Trieste (Italy) on the development of X-ray phase contrast imaging. In 1999, he joined the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF) in Grenoble (France) and since 2003 he has been in charge of the Bio-medical beamline ID17. At the ESRF, he is leading the preclinical phase contrast imaging programs applied to mammography and cartilage studies and the in-house research program on Microbeam Radiation Therapy applied to brain tumors. He co-authored more than 60 peer-reviewed papers.

Department of Pathology, Section of Immunology, University of Verona, Italy)
Confirmed Associate Professor, Section of Immunology, Department of Pathology, University of Verona. Science-disciplinary MED/04 (Patologia Generale). His research concerns the mechanisms of action of conjugated antibody / ligand-toxin with particular attention to possible applications nell'immuno-therapy of brain tumors. his studies also concern  about biological and functional cells derived from brain tumors. More recently, his research has been devoted to the study of immunotoxins anti-prostate cancer and experimental aspects concerning the mechanisms of T-lymphocyte response and the functional interaction between T MBP-specific and human astrocytes.

A. Cuppoletti download  abstract
Andrea  Cuppoletti is the Chief Technical Officer  at Molecular Stamping where he’s directing the efforts towards the development of a novel technology to generate DNA microarrays.  Dr. Cuppoletti joined MS from Affymetrix where he was a Scientist in the Chemistry Department developing alternative and improved photoactivatable protecting groups  for the photolithographic synthesis of high density DNA arrays. More recently he was in the group that developed a novel technology for fabrication of DNA arrays with sub-micron feature sizes. Prior to that Andrea had held a postdoctoral research associate position at Stanford University, working on the synthesis and design of non natural nucleosides and their use as either fluorescent tags or  probes for polymerase fidelity requirements. Andrea received his Laurea degree from the University of Rome and MS and PhD from the University of Rochester.

G. Fassina download abstract
Xeptagen - Life Nanotechnology - Life Biotechnology
XEPTAGEN SpA is engaged in the discovery and validation of novel
molecular markers in order to produce innovative diagnostic kits for the
early detection, monitoring, and screening of cancerous cells. By
exploiting the natural immune response to early stage cancer and the
proprietary platform technology Combinatorial Proteomic®, XEPTAGEN has
discovered specific tumor markers that lead to an earlier and much more
accurate detection of developing carcinomas. Our mission includes
creating innovative tools that improve the diagnostic accuracy for cancer
and the clinical management of cancer patients.
Giorgio Fassina PhD, CEO, Chief Scientific Officer & Founder - has a doctoral degree in Bio-organic Chemistry from Padua University. In 1984, he started his scientific career as a Visiting Associate at the National Institute of Arthritis, Diabetes and Digestive Diseases (NIADDK) and later at the National Cancer Institute (NCI, NIH, Bethesda, MD, USA) dealing with proteomic approaches to cancer. At the end of 2001, Mr. Fassina founded Xeptagen, where he is currently the CEO
and Chief Scientific Officer.

G. Scoles download abstract
International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA)/Elettra, Trieste Italy).

Giacinto Scoles is a European & North American chemist and physicist who is best-known for his pioneering development of molecular beam methods for the study of weak van der Waals forces between atoms, molecules, and surfaces. He developed the cryogenic bolometer as a universal detector of atomic and molecule beams that not only can detect a small flux of molecules, but also responds to the internal energy of the molecules. This is the bases for the optothermal spectroscopy technique which Scoles and others have used to obtain very high signal-to noise and high resolution ro-vibrational spectra.
