Dr Bosch is a fellow of the ACD, Asociación Española para el Estudio del Hígado, European Association for the Study of the Liver, American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases and IASL.

M. Guy-Bernard CADIERE - Professor of Free University of Brussels, Belgium, Chief of G.I. surgery, Saint Pierre University Hospital, Brussels, Belgium. Professor Guy-Bernard Cadiere is Doctor of Medicine and also holds a PhD in science. He is one of the world leaders in the field of laparoscopic surgery. He developed especially obesity surgery and robotic surgery. He was the first to operate with the Da Vinci robot, a patient with gastroesophageal reflux. The Americans asked him to perform for the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) the first intervention with a ring gastroplasty for obesity.

Naruya SAITOU - Professor, Division of Population Genetic, National Institute of Genetics , Mishima, Japan. Professor Naruya Saitou is a Doctor of Science (Ph. D), specializing in phylogenetic reconstruction and the evolution of genes. He is the inventor of the method of reconstruction of phylogenetic trees. He created new methods of phylogenetic reconstructions based on multidimensional networks. He was closely involved in the study of the evolution of genes involved in the control of embryonic development and blood group genes.Professor Saitou Naruya received honorary awards such as 'Research Promotion Award, Genetics Society of Japan' and 'The 12th Academic Award, Kihara Memorial Foundation'.

MXene is one of the most sensitive gas sensors ever reported

MXene gas sensorsMXene is one of the most sensitive gas sensors ever reported that sniff out chemicals in the air to warn us about everything from fires to carbon monoxide to drunk drivers to explosive devices hidden in luggage have improved so much that they can even detect diseases on a person’s breath. Researchers from Drexel University and the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology have made a discovery that could make our best “chemical noses” even more sensitive.
