K.S. Kim Pusan National University Busan South Korea
Prof. Kwang-sun Kim graduated from Chonbuk National
University, Korea, with a B.S. degree in Chemistry (1998). In 2000,
he received an M.S. degree of nucleic acid biochemistry at the
Department of Chemistry, Seoul National University, Korea. From
2000 to 2004 Prof. Kim completed a Ph.D. program at the
Department of Chemistry in Korea Advanced Institute of Science
and Technology (KAIST). From 2006 to 2010, Prof. Kim joined the
School of Medicine at Stanford University as a Post-doctoral
Fellow under the guidance of Prof. Stanley Cohen, a pioneer of
genetic engineering. After research training at Stanford, he joined
as a senior researcher at Korea Research Institute of Bioscience
and Biotechnology (KRIBB) (2010). From 2010 to 2015, he was
assigned as an adjunct Assistant and Associate Professor at the
University of Science and Technology (UST), Korea. In 2015, Prof.
Kim finally moved to the Department of Chemistry, Pusan National
University and joined as an Assistant Professor with tenure.
His early researches are aimed at the biogenesis of bacterial small
noncoding RNAs and the elucidation of mechanism of action of
specific ribonucleases, related proteins, small non-coding RNAs,
and to identify cellular functions that regulate the actions of above
molecules. His current interest focuses on the developing new
concept materials and vaccines and the identification of antibiotic
resistance mechanism to combat diseases caused by bacterial
pathogens. He is also working as an editorial board member of
World Journal of Biological Chemistry from 2018 and an
Ambassador at Bentham Science Publisher from 2019.
M. Salvi University of Padova Padova Italy
Mauro Salvi received his B.S. degree in Biology (1998) and Ph.D. degree in Biochemistry and Biophysics (2002) from the University of Padova, Italy. Mauro Salvi joined the faculty at the University of Padova in 1996 as Assistant Professor and was promoted to Associate Professor in 2015. His current research projects are all addressed to work out phosphorylation-based regulatory mechanisms in different signal transduction pathways studying the kinase (function, regulation, partners etc.) and the target protein substrate/s (physiological role of phosphorylation) with a combination of in silico, in vitro and in cell experimental approaches.
T. Veenstra Cedarville University Cedarville, OH USA
Dr. Timothy Veenstra received his PhD in biochemistry from the University of Windsor in
Canada followed by completion of a post-doctoral fellowship at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester,
Minnesota. It was at the Mayo Clinic that he recognized the value of applying mass
spectrometry (MS) to biomedical research. He has spent most of his career in research, utilizing
MS in the fields of oncology and neurology to identify biomarkers for disease detection as well
as identifying protein interactions key to disease progression. He has co-authored almost 400
peer-reviewed manuscripts and is the author of the book “Proteomic Applications in Cancer
Detection and Discovery”.
Ben M. Dunn Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology University of Florida College of Medicine, P.O. Box 100245, Gainesville Florida, FL 32610-0245 USA
Distinguished Professor Ben M. Dunn received his Ph.D. in Chemistry from the University of California at Santa Barbara in 1971 and did postdoctoral work at the National Institutes of Health from 1971-1974. He joined the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology in 1974 and moved through the ranks to his current title. He served as President of the American Peptide Society from 2011-2013 and was President of the International Proteolysis Society. He is the Editor-in-Chief of two Bentham journals, Protein and Peptide Letters, for research reports and mini-reviews, and Current Protein and Peptide Science, which publishes exclusively review papers.
