Lo Gorton
Department of Biochemistry and Structural Biology Lund University
Lo Gorton was born 1949 and received his PhD in analytical chemistry in 1981. He became full professor in 1997. Research interests: electrochemical communication between electrodes and redox enzymes/biological membranes/whole cells and applications thereof in biosensors and biofuel cells. He has published more than 470 original scientific papers in peer reviewed journals, has more than 21000 (ISI)/29000 (Google Scholar) citations and an H-index of 75 (ISI)/92 (Google Scholar). He is a fellow of the ISE since 2012, awarded The International DropSens Award in 2012, the Katsumi Niki prize in 2014 and the EuCheMS DAC award in analytical chemistry in 2017. He is currently the President of the Bioelectrochemical Society.

Margarita Miranda-Hernández
University of Instituto de Energías Renovables Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México
Dr. Margarita Miranda Hernández is a research scientist at the Institute of Renewable Energies (IER-UNAM), Temixco, Morelos, México. His lines of research are related to the development of modified carbon matrices (micro and nanostructures) for energy storage applications (electrochemical capacitors, flow batteries, and hydrogen electrochemical adsorption), electrochemical reduction of CO2, and electrodeposits of metal particles and oxides metals for the development of chemical-biological interfaces. Her research experience has contributed to the generation of knowledge in the areas of electrochemical activation, electrodeposits on carbon surfaces and description of interfacial phenomena determinant in energy storage and electrocatalysis using different electrochemical techniques.

Reginald Penner
Department of Chemistry, University of California, Irvine
Reginald Penner is Chancellor’s Professor in the Department of Chemistry at the University of California, Irvine (UCI). He is an electrochemist whose research group develops methods based upon electro-deposition for making nanomaterials, such as nanowires, composed of metals and semiconductors. With his students, he has more than 170 research publications to date.

Yogesh Surendranath
Department of Chemistry, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
The Surendranath lab has developed new methods of engineering electrode surfaces as the molecular scale. In particular, the group has established a method for linking molecular active sites to graphitic carbon surfaces through conjugated linkages that endow the molecular species with properties akin to metallic surfaces.
