Keynote Speakers-2015
Dr. Thomas C. Südhof
Professor, Stanford University, USA
Dr. Erwin Neher
Emeritus Professor, Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry, Germany

Thomas Christian Südhof was born in Göttingen, Germany, on Dec. 22 in 1955, obtained his M.D. and doctoral degrees from the University of Göttingen in 1982. He performed his doctoral thesis work at the Max-Planck-Institut für biophysikalische Chemie in Göttingen with Prof. Victor P. Whittaker on the biophysical structure of secretory granules. From 1983-1986, Südhof trained as a postdoctoral fellow with Drs. Mike Brown and Joe Goldstein at UT Southwestern in Dallas, TX, and elucidated the structure, expression and cholesterol-dependent regulation of the LDL receptor gene. Südhof began his independent career as an assistant professor at UT Southwestern in 1986. When Südhof started his laboratory, he decided to switch from cholesterol metabolism to neuroscience, and to pursue a molecular characterization of synaptic transmission. His work initially focused on the mechanism of neurotransmitter release which is the first step in synaptic transmission, and whose molecular basis was completely unknown in 1986. Later on, Südhof's work increasingly turned to the analysis of synapse formation and specification, processes that mediate the initial assembly of synapses, regulate their maintenance and elimination, and determine their properties. Südhof served on the faculty of UT Southwestern in Dallas until 2008, and among others was the founding chair of the Department of Neuroscience at that institution. In 2008, Südhof moved to Stanford, and became the Avram Goldstein Professor in the School of Medicine at Stanford University. In addition, Südhof has been an Investigator of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute since 1986.

Erwin Neher has been Director of the Membrane Biophysics Department at the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry in Goettingen, Germany from 1983 to 2011. He received his Ph.D. in Physics from the Institute of Technology in Munich and did postdoctoral research in the Physiology Department at Yale University. In 1989 he spent a sabbatical at the California Institute of Technology. His research interests have focused on studies of ion channels and neuronal signaling. More recently he concentrated on mechanisms of hormone- as well as neurotransmitter-release and synaptic plasticity.
For his development of the patch clamp technique for recording of ion channel activity he received the 1991 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine (together with Bert Sakmann). He is a member, or foreign member, of several national and international academies, among them the National Academy of Sciences (USA), and the Royal Society, London. In 2005 he was awarded the title ‘Einstein Professor’ by the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
