Since 2000, Dr Bosch has been the Coordinator of the Department of Liver, Gastroenterology and Metabolism at the Institut d’Investigació Biomèdica August Pi i Sunyer, Barcelona, and Research Coordinator of the Institut de Mlalties Digestives, Hospital Clínic, Barcelona. He is also the Coordinator of the National Network of Research in Hepatology and Gastroenterology. His particular research interests are the pathophysiology and treatment of portal hypertension. 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'.

ICEnSM 2017. 2017 International Conference on Energy Storage Materials, Shenzhen, China, November 18-21, 2017

The First International Conference on Energy Storage Materials Professor Yury Gogotsi from Drexel University, USA, has won the 2017 Energy Storage Materials Award, which is awarded by the journal Energy Storage Materials. The Award will be presented to Professor Gogotsi at the ICEnSM 2017 (2017 International Conference on Energy Storage Materials), which will be held in Shenzhen, China, on Nov. 18-21, 2017.

 
Congratulations to professor Yury Gogotsi for being named 2017 Highly Cited Researcher!

altHis research ranks among the top 1% most cited works in his field and during its year of publication, earning the mark of exceptional impact. This year is the first time Yury Gogotsi made this list in two categories - Materials Science and Chemistry.

 
Nanodiamonds Can Prevent Lithium Battery Fires

Nanodiamonds in the electrolyte solution of lithium ion batteries prevent the formation of dendrites that cause runaway heat-up resulting in fires. Source: Drexel University and Tsinghua UniversityScientists researching battery-related fires and explosions, such as the incidents that got Samsung Galaxy Note 7s banned from airline flights last year, took the first step toward preventing the fires when they traced the source of the runaway heat buildup to small dendrites that form between the anode and cathode. Now a materials specialist at Drexel University (Philadelphia) has proposed a low-cost, easy way to prevent the dendrites from forming.

Partial breaking of the Coulombic ordering of ionic liquids confined in carbon nanopores

An international team of researchers, including Drexel's Yury Gogotsi, PhD, observed that ions will forgo their typical alternating charge ordering when they are forced to jam into a small, sub-nanometer-sized, space — a behavior modification not unlike people relinquishing personal space in order to pack into a crowded subway car. The discovery could lead to safer energy storage devices and better water filtration membranes.In their most recent paper in Nature Materials researcher from Drexel University led by prof. Yury Gogotsi showed that Coulombic ordering reduces when the pores can accommodate only a single layer of ions. The non-Coulombic ordering is further enhanced in the presence of an applied electric potential. 

 
Researcers from Drexel University have developed a recipe that can turn electrolyte solution into a safeguard against the chemical process that leads to battery-related disasters

Recipe for Safer Batteries — Just Add DiamondsResearchers described a process by which nanodiamonds — tiny diamond particles 10,000 times smaller than the diameter of a hair — curtail the electrochemical deposition, called plating, that can lead to hazardous short-circuiting of lithium ion batteries.
