Dr. John D. Bullock is The Brage Golding Distinguished Professor of Research at Wright State University of Boonshoft School of Medicine,USA. He held a clinical faculty position at Stanford University before coming to Wright State, where he served as professor and chair of the department of ophthalmology, professor of physiology and biophysics, associate professor of microbiology and immunology. He also served as a lecturer in Law and Medicine at the University Of Dayton School Of Law. He discovered three new causes of blindness and elucidated the etiology and/or description of eight different retinopathies. His research influenced the market withdrawal of two general anesthetics, a warning label for a pharmaceutical agent whose inappropriate use resulted in blindness, and a Consumer Products Safety Commission-mandated warning label. In 2011 he received the Outstanding Scientific Project Award from the Vision Care Section of the American Public Health Association. For the past 10 years, Dr. Bullock has been investigating a worldwide outbreak of infectious blindness (published in the New England Journal of Medicine), which was traced to an improperly and bottled contact lens solution.

Dr. Nigel Yarlett is a Distinguished Professor of Biochemistry and Director of Haskins Laboratories at Pace University, New York, United States of America. He recevied his BS and PhD from Cardiff University, Wales. Did post doctoral research at The Rockefeller University, New York, and The Institute of Animal Physiology, Cambridge University. Awarded the Hutner Prize in Protozoology (1995); Fellow of the Society of Fellows of Pace University (1996); a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry (2012). Member of the American Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and The New York Academy of Science. Over 100 publications in the area of protozoan biochemistry. Demonstrated the presence of hydrogenosomes in Rumen protozoa and Rumen fungi. The role of oxygen in the resistance of Trichomonas vaginalis to metronidazole. The unique polyamine bichemistry of Trichomonas vaginalis and Cryptosporidium parvum. The ability of oxoboroles to cure mouse model trypanosomiasis. Novel culture method for Cryptosporidium parvum. Funded by the National Institutes of Health; Drugs for Neglected Diseases initiative, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Current research centers on use of a hollow fiber culture system to evaluate chemotherapeutic agents for the treatment of cryptosporidosis. Compounds can be evaluated over several days or weeks of exposure and preliminary pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic data determined simultaneously. The system permits determination of surviving populations that can be examined for potential drug resistance mechanisms.

Dr. Samuel N Grief is an Associate Professor in Department of Family Medicine at Chicago College of Medicine, University of Illinois, USA. Dr. Samuel initial career venue was in rural Canada. He then transferred to a practice in rural America. He is an expert in making home visits, also known as house calls. As a result of his eight years in these practice settings, He learned many skills and primary care "tricks of the trade" which he envision sharing with students during the span of the grant. For the past several years, he has been a teaching faculty within the PCM Scholars Program, partnering with fledgling medical students in developing continuity of care patient experiences. He envisions doing something similar along these lines, identifying patients in need within our designated rural areas and making house calls and establishing an ongoing relationship with patients that capture the essence of patient-centred medicine. In summary, he anticipates a strong interest among students in our field of study and look forward to co-leading the project with fellow collaborators.

Dr. Jean-Paul Joseph Gonzalez joined Metabiota, Inc. as Senior Staff Scientist, perpetuating his expertise on emerging viral disease, biosafety, biosecurity and biosurveillance, mentoring and training young scientists from developing countries. He has published more than 300 scientific papers, chapters and books. His main fields of research encompass the fundamentals and domains of disease emergence, viral disease eco-epidemiology (i.e. arbovirology, viral hemorrhagic fevers). He has led field and laboratory teams of researchers with institutes of country partners, including Brazil, Central African Republic, Gabon, Senegal, Thailand, Laos, among others. He worked at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta and Fort Collins, and as a visiting professor at the Yale University Arbovirus Research Unit, has been involved in high security laboratory practices and research, early development of geographical information systems applied to infectious diseases. He and his teams have identified new pathogens for humans and animals, and have developed tools and strategies for biosurveillance, control and prevention of highly infectious transmitted disease. He has revisited the spread and dynamics of several viral hemorrhagic fevers, giving spatial and temporal dimensions. He has developed several scientific concepts and research strategies for health (e.g.: long lasting co-evolution of germs and hosts).
