Sungchul Ji is an Associate Professor of Pharmacology and Toxicology at the Ernest Mario School of Pharmacy, Rutgers University, Piscataway, N.J. 08854, USA. I have been teaching Pharmacology, Theoretical Aspects of Pharmacology, and Computational/Theoretical Cell Biology to Pharm D students at Rutgers since 1982 and have authored two books, Molecular Theory of the Living Cell: Concepts, Molecular Mechanisms and Biomedical Applications (2012, Sprigner, New York) and The Cell Language Theory: Connecting Mind and Matter (World Scientific, New Jersey, 2017). In 2008, I formulated a new mathematical equation known as the Planckian distribution equation (PDE) by replacing the universal constants and temperate in the blackbody radiation eqaution discovered by M. Planck in 1900. PDE has been found to fit many long-tailed histograms encoutered in all branches of natural and human sciences. Currently I am collaborting with my students and colleagues around the world in applying PDE to solving many challenging problems faced in both basic and applied biomedical sciences, including protein folding, cell biology, cancer mechanicsms, and drug discovery research.
Katarzyna Pawlak graduated in analytical chemistry from the Warsaw University of Technology, Poland in 1999. She received the Ph.D. degree in 2002 in analytical bioinorganic chemistry from the Warsaw University of Technology, WUT (after three 6 months internships in CNRS, France). From 2002 to 2011 she was an Assistant Professor in the Chair of Analytical Chemistry at WUT responsible for development and implementation of new hyphenated techniques in Laboratory of Separation Techniques. In 2007 she established â€œthe school of HPLC and hyphenated techniquesâ€ responsible for trainings in chromatography and mass spectrometry. Recently as an Associated Professor at WUT (since 2011) she completed half a year scholarship in the Laboratory pf professor Pawel Ciborowski at the Nebraska University Medical Center, USA. Her main scientific interests connect hyphenations of liquid chromatography, capillary electrophoresis and electrochemical reaction chamber with mass spectrometers in the field of bioinorganic chemistry, metallomics, metabolomics and proteomics.
Magnus S Magnusson, Research Professor. PhD in 1983, University of Copenhagen. Author of the T-pattern model focused on real-time organization of behavior and has co-directed DNA analysis. Numerous papers and invited talks at mathematical, neuroscience and proteomics conferences and at universities in Europe, USA and Japan. Deputy Director 1983-1988, Anthropology Laboratory, Museum of Natural History, Paris then repeatedly invited temporary Professor in psychology and ethology at the University of Paris (V, VIII & XIII). Since 1991, Director of the Human Behavior Laboratory, University of Iceland. Since 1995, he is in formalized collaboration between 24 universities based on Magnusson analytical model initiated at the Sorbonne, Paris.
