Prof. Guangpu Li, Ph.D.

University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center USA



Thank you to Bentham Science Publishers for providing the opportunity to publish our eBook on ‘Rab GTPases and Membrane Trafficking’. The staff at Bentham Science Publishers are extremely knowledgeable and helpful in providing timely guidance to the authors.

Biography: Dr. Guangpu Li is currently a professor with tenure in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center (OUHSC), USA. He received a Ph.D. degree in molecular biology from Washington University in St. Louis, USA, in 1991, studying Sindbis virus replication. He completed post-doctoral research from the Department of Cell Biology and Physiology also at the Washington University in St. Louis, investigating the role of endosomal Rab GTPases such as Rab5 in the regulation of endocytosis and endosome fusion. Dr. Li became an assistant professor at OUHSC in 1996, an associate professor with tenure in 2004, and established a productive research program that identified a new Rab5-interacting protein (PRA1 or prenylin), characterized the GTP hydrolysis mechanism of Rab5, and in collaboration with Drs. H Qian and XC Zhang, developed mathematical models to explain the GTP hydrolysis and activation mechanisms of Rab5 and determined crystal structures of Rab5, mutants, and Rab5-effector complexes. In recent years, Dr. Li’s laboratory has revealed functional divergence between the early endosome-associated Rab5 and Rab22 in the regulation of NGF signal transduction and cell differentiation. Dr. Li’s current research program is focused on the functions of endosomal Rab GTPases in the biogenesis of signaling endosomes and regulation of cell growth and differentiation.

I was impressed by the thorough approach taken by Bentham Science Publishers throughout the entire publishing process. Their attention to detail, rigour and high standards inspired confidence in the company. Communications from the publishing team were frequent and clear; they were always readily available to help with my queries. The final product was of a high quality and carefully prepared and I am very grateful for the support and hard work that the Bentham team provided.

Biography: Catherine Greene Ph.D. is a Senior Lecturer in the Dept. Medicine in Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland. Her research focuses on the role of microRNAs and sex-specific factors in pulmonary innate immunity.

   
Robert Smith
Park University and Consultant Science Advisor
USA



It has been a pleasure working with Bentham Science, first as a guest editor for The Natural Products Journal, then as an author of my first ebook, Medicinal Chemistry - A Fusion of Traditional and Western Medicine. The staff has been friendly and helpful throughout the publishing process. The two special issues in The Natural Products Journal dealt with Brazilian natural products. So, I have had very positive experiences with Bentham Science.

Biography: Robert Smith received his Ph.D. from the University of Missouri – Kansas City (UMKC) and had a postdoctoral fellowship at the ETH-Zurich. He has been a Principal Investigator on a contract with the National Toxicology Program. He is now an assistant professor at Park University, and a science advisor for the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). He has written two books (including Medicinal Chemistry – A Fusion of Traditional and Western Medicine) and over 70 research articles in refereed journals, including a recent review article on network medicine. He is also an associate editor for The Natural Products Journal.

   
Roberto Vittorio Murri

University of Camerino
Italy



I had a good publishing experience working with Bentham Science Publishers as Editor of an ebook. I am very happy with the excellent service provided by all the team members to assure the highest quality of the electronic printed text. Readers could appreciate the quality of the text and graphical high level of the figures.

Biography: Born in 1942, Roberto Murri graduated in Physics from the University of Bologna in 1966. In 1983, he became a Professor in Structure of Matter in the Physics Department of Bari University. Since 1989, he has been working at the University of Camerino as Professor of General Physics, and then of Photovoltaic Conversion: Materials and Technologies. From 1998 to 2007, he was the Rector’s Delegate for Technology Transfer.

Throughout his career, Professor Murri's research has involved the study of semiconductors materials: deposition mechanisms of thin solid films and measurements of their electrical and photo-electronic transport properties both on crystalline and amorphous semiconductors.

Joseph Zaretsky
Tel Aviv University
Israel



I consider Bentham Science Publishers as one of the best among other prestigious International Science Publishers. The service you provide to your authors is excellent. Your editing staff is very friendly and helpful, and it is a real pleasure to work with such high professionals. I am thankful to them for their support and cooperation which were helpful, very productive and invaluable. I will recommend to my colleagues to publish their papers and books with Bentham Science Publishers.

Biography: Dr. Joseph Zaretsky is a world-known molecular biologist. He received Medical Degree (MD) at the Moscow Medical Institute in 1967 and PhD in biochemistry at the Moscow D. I. Ivanovsky Institute of Virology in 1971. Studying viral carcinogenesis, he demonstrated the role of definite types of retroviruses in human oncogenesis. His results were published in numerous papers and in his monograph entitled “Molecular Biology of Oncogenic Viruses”, which, however, was forbidden in the Soviet Union after his decision to emigrate to Israel in 1978.

Dr. Zaretsky continued his career at Tel Aviv University by studying the expression mechanisms of mucin genes. He was the first who discovered the complex overlapped structure of the regulatory elements in promoter of the MUC1 gene and clarified the role of estrogen receptors in regulation of the MUC1 gene transcription. He published numerous papers and reviews on the subject. As a well-known specialist in “mucinology”, Dr. Zaretsky was invited by Bentham Science Publishers to write the e-book “Mucins – Potential Regulators of Cell Functions”.
