International ASET Inc. is proud to present the Congress Chairs for the 9th World Congress on Recent Advances in Nanotechnology (RAN 2024).
Dr. Wolfgang Ensinger
Technische Universität Darmstadt, Germany
Wolfgang Ensinger studied chemistry and physics at the Universities in Karlsruhe and Heidelberg in Germany. He received his PhD in 1988 from Heidelberg University. Thereafter, he was a guest researcher at Osaka National Research Institute in Japan, lecturer at Institute of Solid State Physics at University Augsburg and professor of Analytical and Nuclear Chemistry at University of Marburg. Since 2004, he is a full professor of Material Analysis at Technical University of Darmstadt in Germany. His research topics include formation of thin films and nanostructures, including nanochannels, nanowires and nanotubes. He has authored/co-authored more than 200 peer-reviewed scientific publications.
Dr. Josef Jampilek
Comenius University, Slovakia
Josef Jampilek completed his Ph.D. degree in Medicinal Chemistry at the Faculty of Pharmacy of the Charles University (Czech Republic) in 2004. In 2004-2011, he worked in expert and managerial posts in the R&D Division of the pharmaceutical company Zentiva (Czech Republic). Prof. Jampilek deepened his professional knowledge at the Medicinal Chemistry Institute of the Heidelberg University (Germany) and at multiple specialized courses. In 2017, he was designated as a Full Professor of Medicinal Chemistry. At present he works at the Regional Centre of Advanced Technologies and Materials, Palacky University in Olomouc (Czech Republic) and the Faculty of Natural Sciences, Comenius University in Bratislava (Slovakia). In addition, he is a visiting professor at the University of Silesia in Katowice (Poland) and Hong Kong Baptist University (Hong Kong SAR, China) and an invited professor/expert at various higher educational institutions. He is an author/co-author of more than 30 patents/patent applications, more than 200 peer-reviewed scientific publications, 7 university textbooks, more than 30 chapters in monographs, and many invited lectures at international conferences and workshops. He also received several awards for his scientific results, e.g., from Aventis, Elsevier, Willey, Sanofi and FDA. The research interests of Prof. Jampilek include design, synthesis, and structure-activity relationships of heterocyclic compounds as anti-invasive and anti-inflammatory agents as well as nanosystems. He is also interested in ADME, drug bioavailability and solid-state pharmaceutical analysis.
