H. Abrahamse
University of Johannesburg
South Africa
Prof. Abrahamse is presently serving as a Director in the Laser Research Center. She has been awarded a degree of PhD in Molecular Biology/Biochemistry from Wits University. Her research interests include photobiology and photochemistry with specific reference to photodynamic cancer therapy, nanotechnology and targeted cancer therapy investigating the intricate mechanisms underlying cancer cell death induced by novel photochemotherapeutic compounds in conjunction with the use of nanoparticles. Her international standing as a researcher of distinction is supported by the fact that she has hosted 3 international conferences and has been invited to present her research at several international conferences. Her publication record is impressive with 154 peer-reviewed accredited journal publications, 19 chapters and 3 books, and a Scopus H-index of 27.

D. Corina
University of Medicine and Pharmacy "Victor Babes"
Dr. DANCIU CORINA is a Researcher, Pharmacist and the Head of Department of Pharmacognosy in Victor Babes University of Medicine and Pharmacy Timisoara. She has been awarded a degree of PhD in 2013. She has contributed her valuable 60 publications in different scientific journals. She is also a member of the editorial board of 6 international journals and co-author of patents. Her research interests include: quantitative and qualitative characterization of vegetal extracts, in vitro and in vivo evaluation of pure natural compounds or total extracts for different types of cancer, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antibacterial effect.

J. Fang
Nanjing University of Science and Technology
Dr. Jingkun Fang received both his B.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees from Hunan University in 2005 and 2010 respectively. During his Ph.D. period, he studied at the Okayama University of Science for 2 years under a joint Ph.D. program. After working in Changsha Research Institute of Mining and Metallurgy for nearly 3 years (2010-2013), he got a position as an associate professor at the Department of Chemistry in Nanjing University of Science and Technology (2013-present). He visited the Australian National University as a visiting scholar for 3 months in 2017. His research interests mainly focus on Organic Synthesis, Medicinal Chemistry, and Organic Functional Molecule.

J. Kim
Kangwon National University
South Korea
Prof. Jin-Chul Kim (ph.D Chemical Engineering, KAIST), academic career spending more than 15 years in the College of Biomedical Science, Kangwon National University. His research interests include drug delivery System, colloid & interface science, and polymer science developed to minimize the side effects of drugs and to maximize their efficacy. His researches are focused on the development of efficacious drug carriers, mostly working on carriers which release their contents in response to stimuli such as light, temperature, pH, current flow, magnetic field, and some specific substances. His publication record is impressive with more than 240 SCI-grade papers as corresponding author.

T.S. Morais
University of Lisbon
Dr. Tânia Morais has been awarded a degree of PhD in Inorganic Chemistry in 2013 from the University of Lisbon. She was honored by the Portuguese Chemical Society in 2014 with the prize “Portuguese Young Chemist Award”. Currently, she is a researcher at Centro de Química Estrutural(CQE) at Faculdade de Ciências da Universidade de Lisboa (FCUL). Her research focuses on the design, synthesis and characterization of Ru, Fe and Cu complexes with targeting molecules (e.g. peptides, carbohydrates, and biomolecules) in their structure for the selective inhibition of the cancer development and metastases. She has 23 papers published in international journals, 3 book chapters and 3 patents.

P. Poltronieri
Institute of Sciences of Food Productions, CNR-ISPA
Dr. Palmiro Poltronieri is presently serving as a researcher at the Agrofood Department of the Italian National Research Council. He holds a Ph.D. in Molecular and Cellular Biology from Verona University. His research interests include abiotic and biotic stress response in model plants, in bioactives from plants with a beneficial effect on health, in food microbiology and in the application of biocontrol strains for plant health. He is the co-founder of Biotecgen, a Small Medium Enterprise and service company, involved in European projects, such as RIBOREG, NANOMYC, ABSTRESS, and TOMGEM. He is Associate Editor to BMC Research Notes and is editor-in-chief for Challenges, an MDPI journal. He has co-authored 76 publications in international journals, 35 book chapters, and 5 books.
