Roberto G.S. Berlinck, Ph.D., FRSC
Associate Editor, Journal of Natural Products
Prof. Berlinck graduated in Chemistry (1987) 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 of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences), and during 2014-2015 was visiting professor at the Life Sciences Institute of the University of Michigan in collaboration with Professor David H. Sherman. Since 1993, Dr. Berlinck’s research interest included the discovery of pharmacologically active chemicals from marine invertebrates. Between 2001 and 2006 he 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), in collaboration with Professors Ireland, Andersen and the Pharmaceutical Company Wyeth-Ayerst. In 1998 started the first Brazilian program on the investigation of marine microbial natural products, including bacteria and fungi. Dr. Berlinck established collaborations with several Brazilian and international investigators, including specialists in cancer, inflammation and immunomodulation, antibiotics, parasitic diseases, in biodiscovery, organic synthesis and natural product biosynthesis. More recently Dr. Berlinck’s interests moved towards the understanding of biochemical pathways controlling the biosynthesis of biologically active secondary metabolites produced by fungi and bacteria. These included complex alkaloids and highly modified polyketides, in collaboration with Professors David H. Sherman (University of Michigan, USA) and Richmond Sarpong (University of California, Berkeley, USA), and of bacterial metabolites with Prof. Alessandra Eustaquio (University of Illinois, Chicago). Dr. Berlinck supervised over 80 undergraduate, MSc, PhD students and post-doctoral researchers and published over 140 articles in peer-reviewed journals. He is member of the Brazilian Chemical Society since 1993, of the American Society of Pharmacognosy since 1996, member of the Royal Society of Chemistry since 2008 and of the American Chemical Society since 2015. Professor Roberto Berlinck was recipient of the Brazilian SEM-Sigma Pharma award in 2000 and of the ASP Foundation Matthew Suffness award in 2002.
Warren Chan, Ph.D.
Associate Editor, ACS Nano
Canadian Research Chair in Nanoengineering in the Institute of Biomaterials and Biomedical Engineering, Head of Biomedical Engineering, the University of Toronto
Dr. Chan is currently the Canadian Research Chair in Nanoengineering in the Institute of Biomaterials and Biomedical Engineering at the University of Toronto. He is also the Head of Biomedical Engineering. Dr. Chan received his B.S. degree from the University of Illinois in 1996, Ph.D. degree from Indiana University in 2001, and post-doctoral training at the University of California (San Diego). He moved to Toronto in 2002 to lead the Integrated Nanotechnology/Biomedical Sciences Laboratory. His research interest is in the development and translation of nanotechnology for diagnosing and treating cancer and infectious diseases. He is currently an Associate Editor of ACS Nano. Finally, he is also affiliated with a number of different departments at the University of Toronto: Department of Materials Science and Engineering, the Terrence Donnelly Center for Cellular and Biomolecular Research Chemistry, Chemistry and Chemical Engineering.
President, ACS International Student Chapter at Federal University of Minas Gerais
Camila Lima started her studies in Chemistry at the Federal University of Minas Gerais in 2018, where she is currently an undergraduate student, holding a Minor in Materials Chemistry. She is a research intern in the Laboratory of Materials and Catalysis of UFMG participating in projects with environmental applications. Camila joined the ACS International Student Chapter UFMG in May 2019, was the 2020 Director of Marketing and Communication, and is now President through May 2022. In January 2020, she attended the ACS Leadership Institute.
