Markus Antonietti (Max Planck Institute, Germany) is full Professor at the University of Potsdam and the Director for “Colloid Chemistry” at the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces. He studied Chemistry and Physics at the University of Mainz and received his Ph.D. from the same University, where he was appointed Assistant Professor in 1985. In 1990, he obtained the Habilitation in Physical Chemistry. Since 1993 he holds his current positions at the University of Potsdam and the Max Planck Institute. During his longstanding career, Prof. Antonietti has been pioneer in numerous topics of colloid and polymer science. His current scientific interests include, among others, self-organization and self-assembly, porous polymers,   biomimetic materials, green materials, chemistry of the energy and ram material change, metal free catalysis and artificial photocatalysis. Prof. Antonietti has been the recipient of several awards and honorary fellowships, including 3 ERC Grants.


John F. Brady (Caltech, USA)

John Francis Brady (Caltech, USA) is the Chevron Professor of Chemical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering at the California Institute of Technology, USA. He studied in the University of Pennsylvania and obtained a M.Sc. and Ph.D. from Stanford University. He was appointed Associate Professor at Caltech in 1985 and full Professor in 1990. His research interests relate to fluid mechanics and transport processes. He has a special interest in problems at the interface between continuum mechanics and statistical mechanics, as well as in fundamental studies of complex and multiphase fluids. Prof. Brady has received several distinctions for his outstanding scientific contributions. He is an elected fellow of the American Physical Society, a fellow of the Society of Rheology, as well as a member of the National Academy of Sciences, the National Academy of Engineering, and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.


Gijsje Koenderink (TU Delft, The Netherlands)

Gijsje Koenderink (TU Delft, The Netherlands) is full Professor in the Bionanoscience Dept of the TU Delft and Professor by special appointment at the VU University Amsterdam. She obtained a M.Sc. and Ph.D. in Chemistry at Utrecht University and trained as a Marie Curie postdoctoral Fellow at the VU Univ. Amsterdam and Harvard Univ. In 2006 she established the Biological Soft Matter group at the FOM Institute AMOLF, where she also headed the Living Matter Department. Koenderink’s group focuses on quantitative experimental studies of the material properties of cells and tissues. She combines bottom-up synthetic biology approaches with multiscale physical characterization from single molecule force spectroscopy to rheometry. Her group closely collaborates with biological and biomedical groups to address the role of cell and tissue mechanics in disease and tissue regeneration. She received various distinctions, including an NWO VIDI (2008), elected membership of the Young Academy of the KNAW (2008), ERC Starting Grant (2013), NWO VICI (2019) and the P-G. de Gennes Prize (2018). https://www.tudelft.nl/en/faculty-of-applied-sciences/about-faculty/departments/bionanoscience/research/research-labs/koenderink-lab

Christos Likos (University of Vienna, Austria) is full Professor of Physics at the University of Vienna. He studied Electrical Engineering at the National Technical University of Athens, and obtained a M.Sc. and Ph.D. in Physics from Cornell University in 1993, working with Neil Ashcroft and Chris Henley. He has been Alexander von Humboldt Fellow at the University of Munich, Heinsenberg Fellow at Cambridge University and Research Fellow in Juelich, before becoming Professor of Physics at the University of Duesseldorf in 2003. As of 2010, he is Professor of Physics at the University of Vienna, where he has also been Senior Fellow of the Erwin Schroedinger Institute in 2007. His research interests revolve around coarse-graining strategies to examine structure, dynamics, self-assembly and rheology of complex fluids. Prof. Likos received various distinctions and fellowships, among which the Fellowship of the Royal Society of Chemistry.
