Uwe Marx (born 26 June 1964 in Berlin) is a German physician and biotechnologist, and is one of the world's leading
researchers in the fields of organ-on- a-chip technology and antibody production. In 1989 at the Charité Berlin, Germany,
he planned to recreate organs like liver, lung, or immune system in vitro and to mimic organ functions and interactions
outside a living organism. He was initially able to develop a human artificial lymph node model (in vitro) for
immunogenicity tests. Since 2007, Uwe Marx has been working together with other scientists to reproduce the human
organism on a microfluidic chip at a scale of 1:100,000. In 2010, he became head of the Multi-Organ- Chip group at the
Technische Universität Berlin, Germany and simultaneously became the CEO of TissUse GmbH, a spin-off of the
University to commercialize the Multi-Organ- Chip platform. The aim is to shorten the entire drug development process
as well as to reduce animal experiments and drug testing in humans during clinical trials. These microfluidic devices can
also be used to test other substances (e.g. chemicals, cosmetic ingredients) for their safety and efficacy.
He is a serial entrepreneur and the founder of the successful German biotechnology companies Vita 34 AG (Leipzig
Germany), ProBioGen AG (Berlin, Germany) and TissUse GmbH (Berlin, Germany). Uwe Marx authored more than 50
peer viewed publications and is the inventor of more than 140 granted patents.

Dr Margaret Magdesian has a BSc in Pharmacy and a PhD in Biochemistry from the University of São Paulo. She was a Professor of Medical Biochemistry at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro studying receptor-ligand interactions in the brain. Tired of the slow, expensive and inefficient process of drug development, in 2008 she moved to Canada and in collaboration with researchers from McGill University, she developed a new product to increase standardization, precision, and reproducibility of cellular assays. Recently, she launched a company called ANANDA Devices (www.AnandaDevices.com) to commercialize this product and stimulate other scientists to achieve reproducible and impactful results faster. Dr Magdesian’s innovation has the potential to dramatically accelerate the drug development cycle of new therapies for people that need it.

The major focus of my research is to identify and characterize the participation of specific immune components on several infectious and inflammatory diseases. I obtained my Ph.D from Sao Paulo University in Brazil, with a strong background in Immunology and Virology. My primary focus as a researcher is to understand the participation of key molecules, such as cellular receptors and differentially activated signaling pathways on immune regulation and activation following infectious diseases. My recently established laboratory at Fiocruz (located on Northeast Brazil, the major affected area on Zika initial outbreak) was one of the first research centers to indentify Zika virus circulation in Brazil. Also, current projects on viral dynamics (genetic variability) of positive strand RNA viruses are being developed in my group. By this, we were able to establish a surveillance system to monitor circulating arboviruses in endemic areas. I have an extensive training on technologies widely applied to Immunology investigation such as cell cytometry and sorting, animal handling/experimentation and molecular biology. Ongoing research projects in my laboratory aim to elucidate the pathogenesis of the positive strand RNA Zika virus. We are primarily interested in study how this virus is recognized by the immune system and how the elicited immune response correlates with disease manifestation.

Graduated in Chemistry (1988) at the University of Campinas, Brazil. Obtained his PhD in Sciences (Organic Chemistry) at the Université Libre de Bruxelles (1992). In 1993 moved to the Universidade de São Paulo as assistant professor. During 1997-1998 was a visiting professor at the University of British Columbia (UBC), Canada, in collaboration with Professor Raymond J. Andersen (Departments of Chemistry and Earth and Ocean Sciences). Since 1993, Dr. Berlinck’s research interest included the discovery of pharmacologically active chemicals from marine invertebrates. During the period between 2001-2006 participated in the National Cooperative Drug Discovery Group program funded by the National Institutes of Health, leaded by Professor Chris M. Ireland (Department of Medicinal Chemistry, University of Utah, USA), working in collaboration with Professors Ireland and Andersen and the Pharmaceutical Company Wyeth-Ayerst. In 1998 started the first Brazilian program on the investigation of microbial secondary metabolism, including Streptomycete and fungi. Dr. Berlinck established collaborations with a number of Brazilian and International investigators, including specialists in cancer, inflammation and immunomodulation, antibiotics (including tuberculosis) and parasitic diseases. His interest in the discovery of useful biologically active molecules proved as fruitful. The discovery of anti-Leishmanial and anti-Chagas parasites is currently a very active program in collaboration with Dr. André Tempone, one of the leading parasitologists in Brazil. More recently Dr. Berlinck’s interests moved towards the understanding of biochemical pathways controlling the biosynthesis of biologically active secondary metabolites produced by fungi in culture conditions. These include complex alkaloids and highly modified polyketides, in collaboration with Professors David H. Sherman (University of Michigan, USA) and Richmond Sarpong (University of California et Berkeley, USA). Dr. Berlinck supervised more than 40 MSc, PhD students and post-doctoral researchers and published over 100 articles in peer-reviewed journals.
Rodrigo Catharino is a Pharmacist, having been involved with analytical chemistry since I was an undergraduate student. In my masters and doctorate, I developed methodologies for vitamins in food products using HPLC. During my Post-doc, I used Mass Spectrometry to develop new methodologies in food sciences and natural products, chemistry and biochemistry. Now, as a Professor at the University of Campinas, in addition to working with food science, I have broadened my scope by using Metabolomics andMass Spectrometryapplied to the Health and Pharmaceutical Sciences, expanding to areas such as Parasitology, Diagnostics, Toxicology and Drug Compatibility. I currently lead a Research Group at the INNOVARE Biomarkers Laboratory of the School of Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of Campinas. Our group is pioneering in the application of Metabolomics combined with Mass Spectrometry Imaging, developing comprehensive analytical strategies that study both the qualitative and the quantitative aspects of metabolites and small molecules in various biological samples such as tissues, biological fluids and other natural products.
