Dr.Yoichiro Yoshida was born 1970 in Japan.I graduated from University of Occupational & Environmental Health, School of Medicine (1990-1996). In 2000, I matriculated at Department of Molecular Biology, School of Medicine, University of Occupational & Environmental Health and did research for drug resistance of anti-cancer agents under the supervision of Kimitoshi Kohno and awarded the PhD in 2004.I am now an Assistant Professor in Department of Gastroenterological Surgery at Fukuoka University School of Medicine.

Professor of Experimental Physics, Department of Physics and Earth Sciences
University of Messina Viale Ferdinando, Italy
S. Magazù became full professor in Experimental Physics in 2002 at the Facoltà di Scienze MM.FF.NN. of Messina University.
The research topics addressed are manifold, and also different in some respects, emerges as a common leitmotif: the integrated use of experimental techniques of investigation, such as laser light scattering, infrared absorption, neutron scattering, etc ... for the characterization of the space-time correlations of physical systems disordered.

University of Central Florida, USA
Dr. Suren A. Tatulian completed his doctorate in biophysics at the Institute of Cell Biology in St. Petersburg, Russia, in 1979. He studied interactions of ions with lipid bilayer membranes, effects of lipid thermal phase transitions on ion-lipid interactions, and intermembrane interactions using particle electrophoresis, light scattering, neutron diffraction and other biophysical techniques. In 1992 he moved to the University of Virginia, USA, where he worked on interactions of peptides and proteins with membranes using infrared spectroscopy, circular dichroism, and fluorescence spectroscopy. Dr. Tatulian worked at the University of Kansas in Lawrence, KS, from 1999 to 2001 and then moved to the University of Central Florida (UCF) in Orlando, FL, as an associate professor. Currently Dr. Tatulian is at the Department of Physics of UCF, where he is teaching courses of physics and biophysics and is conducting research on protein-membrane interactions and structural aspects of interfacial enzymology.
