Giovanna Ferraioli, MD is a researcher at Fondazione IRCCS Policlinico San Matteo, Medical School University of Pavia, (Italy). Her research interests include elastography in diffuse liver diseases, noninvasive assessment of liver steatosis, ultrasound contrast agents, and Doppler in portal hypertension. Dr. Ferraioli received her medical degree from Naples University, Italy. In 1988-89 she completed a research fellowship at the Yale University, USA, with Prof. Kenneth JW Taylor and Prof. Roberto J Groszmann. She is the coordinator of the Ultrasound School at Fondazione IRCCS San Matteo Hospital Foundation, Medical School of the University of Pavia (Italy), and co-director of the EFSUMB Ultrasound Learning Center at the same Institution. Dr. Ferraioli has delivered several invited lectures in her area of expertise to international audiences. She is member of the scientific editorial board of European Radiology, International Journal of Radiology, World Journal of Hepatology and she’s a referee for more than 50 international journals. She has been appointed General Secretary of MASU (Mediterranean and African Society of Ultrasound) for the triennium 2011-2013 and 2013-2015. Dr. Ferraioli has been a member of the Education Committee of the World Federation for Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology (WFUMB) for the triennium 2013-2015, a member of the WFUMB expert panel for the guidelines on elastography and a member of the expert panel for the use of elastography in the assessment of diffuse liver disease convened by the Society of Radiologists in Ultrasound (SRU). She’s a member of the EFSUMB expert team for the guidelines on liver elastography, a member of the WFUMB panel for the update of the guidelines on liver elastography, and a member of the QIBA initiative in shear wave speed in diffuse liver diseases. Dr. Ferraioli has published several scientific articles in international peer-reviewed journals, including Hepatology, Gastroenterology, Gut, Journal of Hepatology, Digestive and Liver Disease, Radiology, European Radiology, American Journal of Roentgenology, Ultrasound in Medicine & Biology.
Dario Pasini obtained his first degree from the University of Pavia in 1992, and a PhD in Chemistry in 1996 from the University of Birmingham, UK (advisor: Prof. Sir J. Fraser Stoddart, Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2016). After postdoctoral research at the University of California, Berkeley, USA, in the group of Prof. J. M. J. Fréchet (1997–1999), he joined the faculty of the Department of Chemistry at the University of Pavia in 2000 (Associate Professor from 2015, with Habilitation to Full Professor), where he continues to develop his scientific interests in the fields of organic, supramolecular and polymeric materials. He spent time as a visiting professor at the University of Geneva (Prof. S. Matile, 2005) and at the University of South Carolina (Prof. L. Shimizu, 2011), the latter after the award of a Journal Grant for International Authors from the Royal Society of Chemistry. He is a fellow (since 2017) of the Royal Society of Chemistry.
I am a habilitated doctor at the Westphalian Wilhelms University and a group leader at the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Biomedicine, both in Muenster (NRW, Germany). I received my education in reproductive biology and am a certified biologist as well as a laboratory animal scientist. I studied and trained at the University of Pavia (Italy), at the Rigshospitalet (Denmark) and at the University of Pennsylvania (USA), where I developed a keen interest in the mammalian oocyte with emphasis on the ooplasm’s ability to convert somatic nuclei from a differentiated to a toti/pluripotential state of gene expression (‘reprogramming’). In my research, I have shown that oocyte-mediated nuclear reprogramming in mice is an orderly process that is amenable to control by cell-cell interactions (embryo aggregation) and in vitro culture conditions (culture media as epigenetic modifiers). Currently my team investigates the genetic and epigenetic factors that influence cell and nuclear identity in mouse embryos, such as: 1) oocytic i.e. maternal factors (Reproduction 148:55-72, 2014); 2) environmental factors e.g. culture conditions (Human Reproduction 27:2627-2640, 2012). As a respected member of the nuclear transfer community I have published over 40 peer-reviewed publications in prime journals and have written numerous book chapters on nuclear reprogramming by oocytes and on embryonic stem cells. I received support from the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) and from the Max Planck Gesellschaft (MPG).
Research interests: · Ecology of benthic invertebrates of lagoon and marine environments, particularly peracarid crustaceans and bryozoans · Biological invasions · Indicators and indices of environmental quality · Biological traits analysis of benthic communities · Applications of fuzzy logic to ecological research.
Master Degree in Nature Sciences at the University of Pavia in 1983. Started working on bioacoustics, sound recording, digital signal processing and computational bioacoustics in 1980 to prepare his master thesis on the computer analysis of bird songs. He then worked in the marine bioacoustics field to study cetaceans by developing specific equipment. Now teaches “Bioacoustics” and "Ecology" (University of Pavia, Italy), runs the “Centro Interdisciplinare di Bioacustica e Ricerche Ambientali” he contributed to create in 1989 to develop innovative bioacoustic research. Main interests: cetacean acoustics, impact of noise, sound analysis, computational bioacoustics, soundscape monitoring and analysis. Cooperates with international institutions; runs the Italian Strandings Online Database; cofounder of the International Ecoacoustics Society.
