Besides speakers from MaxSynBio we will have international guest speakers and speakers from the Center for Dynamics Systems in Magdeburg.
Sheref S. Mansy received his BS and PhD degrees from the Ohio State University where he studied the biosynthesis of iron-sulfur clusters with Jimmy Cowan. He then went on to carry out postdoctoral work on protocells with Jack Szostak.
Jason Chin is a Programme Leader at the Medical Research Council Laboratory of Molecular Biology (MRC-LMB), where he is also a Head of the Centre for Chemical & Synthetic Biology (CCSB). He is a Professor of Chemistry and Chemical Biology at the University of Cambridge Department of Chemistry and a fellow and director of studies in Biochemistry at Trinity College, Cambridge.
Patricia Bassereau is currently CNRS Directrice de Recherche (equivalent to professor) at the Institut Curie in Paris where she is the leader of the group "Membranes and cellular functions". She started her carrier in Soft Matter in Montpellier (GDPC) and spent one year as a visiting scientist at the IBM Almaden Center (San Jose, USA).

Udo Kragl studied chemistry at the University of Bonn. He finished his PhD thesis in 1992 in the field of biochemical reaction engineering. After a postdoc at Ciba-Geigy International Research Laboratories in Takarazuka in Japan, he returned to the Juelich Research Center and University of Bonn for his habilitation.
Speakers of the Center for Dynamics Systems
Michael Naumann is head of the Institute for Experimental Internal Medicine at the Otto-von-Guericke-Universität. His research team investigates clinically important signaling modules which are relevant for cancer development.
Steffen Klamt studied Systems Science at the University of Osnabrück and finished his PhD thesis in the field of metabolic modeling in 2005 at the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics of Complex Technical Systems in Magdeburg. Since 2009 he heads the research group "Analysis and Redesign of Biological networks" at the MPI Magdeburg.
Further speakers of the CDS will be presented here soon.
Barbara Prainsack is a Professor at the Department of Political Science at the University of Vienna, and at the Department of Social Science, Health & Medicine at King’s College London. Her work explores the social, regulatory and ethical dimensions of biomedicine and bioscience.
Further participants in the panel discussion are
Kai Sundmacher (MaxSynBio)
Petra Schwille (MaxSynBio)
Peter Dabrock (MaxSynBio)
Further guest speakers will be presented here soon.
