Katrin Kneipp received her Diplom and Ph.D. degree in Physics and in Physical Chemistry from Friedrich Schiller University in Jena, Germany. Her current research interests at Harvard Medical School include single molecule and nanoscale spectroscopies and their broad interdisciplinary
Ricardo F. Aroca, obtained his undergraduate degree in Chemistry from the University of Chile, PhD in Chemistry from Moscow State University. Presently he is University Professor at the University of Windsor.and fellow of the Chemical Institute of Canada. His research is in surface-enhanced
vibrational spectroscopy and its analytical applications. Nanostructure fabrication and characterization.
Harald Kneipp received his Diplom in Physics from Friedrich Schiller University in Jena, and a Ph.D. degree in Physics from the Academy of Sciences in Berlin. He conducted research in the fields of plasma physics, nonlinear optics, and laser physics and development. His current interests include
applications of lasers and optical spectroscopy at the frontiers of science and medicine.
After graduating with a BSc (Hons) from University College Dublin (NUI) Edeline Wentrup-Byrne obtained her PhD in organic chemistry from the University of Lausanne in Switzerland. Her research interests include the use of vibrational spectroscopy to study naturally occurring biomaterials, the
surface-modification of fluorinated bone-repair materials (ePTFE) and the development of degradable polymeric scaffolds for use in bone repair applications. In addition, she is working with a multi-disciplinary team and a Brisbane-based industry Tissue Therapies to develop a novel skin
wound-healingbandage therapy. Currently she is a member of the Tissue Repair and Regeneration Program in the QUT Institute for Health and Biomedical Innovation.
