Grant Awarding Coordinator
Priyanka Sahariah is a Research Scientist in Polymer Chemistry at the University of Iceland and a Development Scientist at Alvotech, Iceland. Research interests include design, synthesis and structural characterization of biopolymer based conjugates for various biomedical applications including antimicrobial activity.
Dana Reichmann is an Associate professor at the Department of Biological Chemistry at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Her research is dealing with understanding how microorganisms (yeast and bacteria) maintain their “healthy” and complex proteome during stress conditions. To achieve this goal, the Reichmann lab is utilizing and developing an extensive toolbox of technologies which are able to quantify changes on cellular and molecular levels, including in-vivo fluorescence-based sensors, and mass spectrometry based techniques such as redox and structural proteomics.
Younes Smani is a professor of microbiology at the University of Pablo de Olavide (Seville, Spain). His research interests span from the identification of new therapeutic targets in the bacterial outer membrane, new antimicrobial resistance mechanisms, to the development of new approaches for the treatment of bacterial infections.
Carole Devaux is a senior researcher at the Luxembourg Institute of Health focusing on translational research in infectious diseases. Her work spans over the development of immunoassays and in vivo models of infection to the development of immunotherapeutics against pathogens.
Didem ŞEN KARAMAN
Young Researchers & Innovators coordinator
Didem ŞEN KARAMAN is an associate professor of biomedical engineering at İzmir Katip Çelebi University (İzmir, Turkey). Her research interests encompass the design of nanostructured materials as drug delivery systems, inherent antibacterial nanostructures, and the identification of their antibacterial modes of action.
Tomislav Meštrović is a clinical microbiology specialist, Associate Professor at the University North in Croatia and an Affiliate Associate Professor at the University of Washington School of Medicine. His research interests include the estimation of the global, regional and local burden of antimicrobial resistance and the use of different diagnostic/methodological modalities for resistance surveillance.
