He then returned to the Ministry of Research and Technology where he held many positions in Germany and International Organisations, like ESA, ESO, EMBL. In 1988 he became Director of Cabinet of the German Federal Minister of Research and Technology, Dr. H. Riesenhuber. This comprised also the position of the spokesperson of the Ministry. In 1993 he was appointed Deputy Director General of the Ministry.
In 1996 he went to Brussels to become the Programme Director for “Environment” Research at the Research Directorate-General of the European Commission at Brussels where he conceived and implemented the 4th, 5th and 6th RTD Framework Programmes of the EU in this field. He was also Vice-President of the Steering Committee of IGFA (International Group of Funding Agencies in Global Environmental Changes) and elected Member of the START Scientific Committee.
Since January 2004 he was Programme Director for “Biotechnology, Agriculture & Food” Research at the Research Directorate-General of the European Commission, which from 2007 also comprised Aquaculture and Fisheries as well as Forestry. During these years he was responsible for the elaboration of the new concept of the Knowledge Based Bioeconomy (KBBE), which today is known as biobased Economy or more simply Bioeconomy in Europe. He was also appointed Chairman of the oldest Committee between EU Member States and the European Commission, the Standing Committee on Agricultural Research, SCAR. He also served for 4 years as co-chair in the important EC-US Task Force Life Sciences and Biotechnology Research. In April 2012 Dr. Christian Patermann was appointed Member in the Georgofili Academy in Florence, the oldest Science Academy in the area of agrosciences in the world.
Dr. Patermann is author of more than 100 articles, books and other contributions to Science, Research and Technology in particular in Space, Nuclear and non-Nuclear Energy, Nuclear Proliferation, Environment and Global Changes, Marine Research, Biotechnology, Aquaculture, Food, Forestry and Fisheries.

Honorary Chair

Dr. Yuxin Yin,

Yuxin Yin
Dr. Yuxin Yin is Dean in School of Basic Medical Sciences, Director in Institute of Systems Biomedicine, Peking University Health Science Center, Peking University, China
Dr. Yin received his Ph.D. in Genetics and Molecular Biology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1997 and got postdoctoral training in Princeton University. In 1999, he was appointed as a tenure-track Assistant Professor in Columbia University and was promoted to the Associate Professor in 2007. He was recruited as a National One-thousand Talent Plan to the Peking University Health Science Center in 2010. His research field is cancer research with focus on the roles of tumor suppressors p53 and PTEN in cell cycle regulation, apoptosis and genomic stability. He was the first one to find a fundamental role for p53 in maintaining genomic stability (Cell). Also, it is first reported that PTEN plays a fundamental role in the maintenance of chromosome stability (Cell). In Peking University, Dr. Yin has made great progress in studying the PTEN pathway in genome stability and tumor suppression. Recently, his group revealed a novel mechanism of alternative translation of protein and discovered a new member of the PTEN protein family named PTENα (Cell Metabolism). These studies may provide new insights into the mechanism by which PTEN maintains genomic stability and suppresses tumorigenesis.
