W. Bao
Tongji University
Wenzheng Bao received his Ph.D in computer science from Tongji University in 2018. He received the master degree in computer science from the University of Jinan in 2015. He currently works for school of information and electrical engineering, Xuzhou University of Technology, Xuzhou, China. His research interests include bioinformatics, machine learning, computational biology and proteomics.

K.S. Kim
Pusan National University
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
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
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”.
