Australia

 
Biography :

Associate Professor. Roslyn Gleadow graduated with a PhD in Botany from the University of Melbourne in 1999. She worked for several years in Plant Sciences in the Faculty of Agriculture at The University of Melbourne. She has been a pioneer in the use of innovative teaching methods and spent 2 years with a joint appointment between Botany and the Centre for the Study of Higher Education at The University of Melbourne. At Monash, she leads the Plant Ecophysiology and Monash Cyanogenesis Groups and co-ordinates the core undergraduate program in scientific practice and communication. She has worked extensively on the effect of environmental variables such as drought and elevated carbon dioxide on the partitioning of resources between growth and defence (especially cyanide production) in plants. This research has led to a series of projects that aim to reduce the amount of cyanide in the diet of humans and animals. She is regularly asked to give lectures, radio and television interviews. She is on several science advisory boards and is immediate Past President of the Australian Society of Plant Scientists.

João Paulo R. Marques

João Paulo Rodrigues Marques
University of São Paulo
Brazil

 
Biography :

Dr. Marques graduated in 2006 in Biological Science from the Universidade Metodista de Piracicaba. In undergraduate school, Dr. Marques focused on plant anatomy, mainly on understanding the plant cell/tissue response against viruses, bacteria and fungi. In 2008, he received his Master’s degree in Plant Biochemistry and Physiology from the Luiz de Queiroz College of Agriculture (ESALQ), University of São Paulo (USP). In his Master’s, Dr. Marques conduced a histopathological study on lesions caused by Citrus leprosies virus in leaves, stems, and fruits. Dr. Marques obtained his PhD title in 2012 also in Plant Biochemistry and Physiology (ESALQ-USP) with the thesis named “Histopathology of postbloom fruit drop caused by Colletotrichum acutatum in citrus flowers”. Nowadays, Dr. Marques a Post-Doctoral Researcher at University of São Paulo, Brazil, and he is currently conducting part of his research at School of Plant, Soil and Environmental Science, Agricultural Center, Louisiana State University, USA. His work is focused on plant histopathology, ultrastructure, and histochemistry of sweet orange, sugarcane, and grapevine diseases. Dr. Marques has received financial support from the São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP) and his results have been awarded at national and international congresses. In 2014, Dr. Marques was awarded the Best Thesis Award in the Agricultural Field, from the University of São Paulo. Dr. Marques has authored several papers, which have been published in international journals of high impact factor, focused on plant defense responses against pathogens. Dr. Marques has also acted as a referee for international journals in the botanical and phytopathological fields.

University of Agricultural Sciences and Veterinary Medicine (UASVM), Romania

 
Biography :

Dan Cristian VODNAR, 32 years old, is assistant Professor at University of Agricultural Sciences and Veterinary Medicine Cluj Napoca. His research experience started to be accumulated working as PhD student in the frame of the Doctoral Scholarship Grant No. BD-200 and as Postdoctoral researcher in the POSDRU Fellowship Project (grant. no. 3/03.01.2011). The research stays as PhD student for 6 months at Leibniz Institute fur Agrartechnik Bornim, ATB, Potsdam, Germany and as Erasmus student at University Hohenheim, Stuttgart, Germany are also significant for developing the research skills. The research work conducted so far shows that Dr. Dan Vodnar is able to conduct independent, novel, and high quality research. Dr. Dan Vodnar has been mostly involved within the fields of lactic acid fermentation, food science and technology, bioactive packaging using methods which are able to provide informations about strains metabolites into different conditions. The experience accumulated during the last years is mostly related to the study of the metabolic capacity of strains (e.g. Lactobacillus ssp. Rhizopus ssp. Bacillus ssp. and Bifidobacterium ssp.) to produce lactic acid form renewable feedstocks (Vodnar et al., 2010a) food wastes (Vodnar et al., 2010b) and crude glycerol (Vodnar et al.,2013), a topic which has a great impact worldwide due to lactic acid application in food, pharmaceutical, textile, chemical industries and as monomer in the production of biodegradable polymers (PLA) and to protect lactic bacteria using microencapsulation during harsh acid conditions of gastro intestinal juices (Vodnar et al., 2014; Vodnar et al., 2012, Vodnar et al., 2010). More precisely, the selection of strains with high lactic acid yield, the production of L (+) lactic acid in batch fermentation using lucerne green juice and barley hydrolysate as nutrients substitute, the ability of lactic bacteria to produce lactic acid on food waste substrates, the survivability of microencapsulated lactic bacteria during exposure to simulated gastro-intestinal conditions were the main topics of the studies. The methods used for the characterization of fermentation processes were chromatographically, spectroscopically and microbiologically. Basically, for metabolites production and substrate consumption HPLC and FTIR techniques were used and for bacterial viability during fermentation and exposure into microencapsulated form to simulated gastro-intestinal juices microscopically counting and pour plate techniques were used. The research activity conducted so far resulted in the publication of a total of twelve scientific articles in representative ISI journals in the field, among which eight were published as principal author and a PhD thesis entitle „Optimization of lactic acid fermentation induced by different types of microorganism on vegetal substrates”.

Biography :

I joined Dr. A.B. Das’s Cytogenetics laboratory at Regional Plant Resource Centre, Bhubaneswar, and Orissa for my PhD degree and I took up research problem on chromosomal characteristics, genome size and DNA markers of Indian mangroves and their associates. I reported many chromosomal counts of different mangroves for the first time and some reports with modifications against the earlier report. Besides, I carried out molecular phylogeny analysis with various DNA markers in Indian Minor mangroves and their associates as these plants are more diverse living in both salt as well as sweet water. I published six papers on chromosomal count and their karyotypic study (please see publication list). Then I jointed DARL, Pithorgarg and worked three months for inducing polyploidy of desert plants for for camouflaging. Subsequently, I also worked in NRCMAP, Anand on piper chromosomes.
